The 10th floor of the Doctors' Office Tower (DOT) at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is the home of the Pediatric Pulmonary, Pediatric Nephrology, Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition clinics. as well as the Complex Aerodigestive Evaluation Team.
The 11-story Doctors' Office Tower, adjoining Children's Hospital, houses the outpatient pediatric clinics and serves as a base for many physicians. The additional 21,000-square-foot area provides more space for clinical services.
Marilyn Bergset (pictured at left), then five years old, was the first patient to check in at the 10th floor clinic space in 2012.
The $5 million project to build out the 10th floor space began in March 2011. Outpatient clinics on other floors of the Doctors' Office Tower gained added space with the completion of this project.
The clinics' moves to the 10th floor created vacant space for growth in Pediatric Plastic Surgery on the ninth floor. Renovations on the fifth floor allowed the Pediatric Heart Institute to expand.
The lobby area of each clinic has an open, airy feel. On the walls outside each exam room, a cabinet holding gowns, gloves, and masks allows staff quick, easy access to the protection gear.
