Volunteer Opportunities outside of Davidson County

As Vanderbilt Health expands healthcare services beyond the Metro Nashville/Davidson County area, volunteers are needed within these local communities to support patients and families. When you volunteer at Vanderbilt Health, you have the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life.  Our volunteers bring patients and visitors comfort, convenience, and hope. Please contact Angela Purinton at 615-936-4800 or for more information about volunteering at a Vanderbilt Health location outside of the Metro Nashville area.
