The Vanderbilt Dayani Center is a medical fitness facility.

Our health professionals (physical therapists, exercise physiologists, dietitians and other specialists) help people recover from or manage medical conditions by guiding them through exercise, nutrition or other programs. In Dayani's supportive environment, members have access to a full exercise facility, including group fitness classes, and outpatient rehabilitation services when appropriate.
