After a multiyear effort, renovation is complete for the lobby, one of Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s most heavily trafficked destinations serving hundreds of patients and families each day. The new space opened Feb. 26.
The “new” Vanderbilt University Hospital opened in 1980, and this is the first real makeover the space has gotten in the more than four decades since.
VUMC photographer Donn Jones was among the first to get access to the new space and took these shots just as workers were putting on the finishing touches and members of the public were getting a first look.
