Team members from across Vanderbilt, including VUMC, Population Health, the network, Vanderbilt School of Nursing and Vanderbilt Network Services, have played integral roles in Metro Nashville Public Schools’ (MNPS) expansion of its health and wellness services for employees, retirees and their dependents. The centerpiece of the expansion, is the launch of a new Employee Wellness Center that opened on May 1 at the MNPS headquarters on Fessey Court. At the new center, Vanderbilt Health team members provide a wide range of clinical support for the state-of-the-art facility, including primary care, behavioral health, physical therapy, care coordination, exercise guidance and more. The center also has a full-service fitness center, an on-site pharmacy and a healthy food café. 

Vanderbilt Health at MNPS Employee & Family Health Care Centers, with a total of four locations throughout Davidson County, offer low- or no-cost healthcare for MNPS certificated employees, retirees and their dependents. Thanks to its long-standing relationship with Vanderbilt, MNPS has seen improved health and productivity of its employees and been able to control the cost of health benefits, which led to this enhanced investment in even more robust health and wellness programs.
