Directions to CPPA

The Vanderbilt Center for Patient & Professional Advocacy is located at 2135 Blakemore Avenue on the south side of the medical center complex.

The front door faces Blakemore Avenue. Guest and accessible parking are on the west side of the building. The entry system is located on the brick wall to the right of the door. Please press any buzzer labeled "CPPA" for admittance. Marked visitor parking spaces are available next to the building. However, if they are full, please park anywhere in the lot near our building—and let us know so we can provide a temporary parking permit for your visit. If you have difficulty locating us, call us at 343-4500 and we will assist you. If you have access to a campus phone, simply dial 3-4500.
