Patients and Visitors go to


In 2004 we embarked on a journey to establish a new culture of
service - to our patients, to our colleagues and to each other.
We call that process "elevate"...

Vision: Elevate builds a common culture based upon service excellence and credo behavior across Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Mission: Establish a culture of excellence based on service to our patients, our colleagues and to each other. Strengthen VUMC leadership practices to recruit, retain and develop an engaged and committed workforce; the foundation for service excellence.

Elevate is a marathon, not a sprint. It is a journey that will continue as we set new goals for excellence. This website will help you learn more about our journey. If you have questions we invite you to contact us.
