Vanderbilt Health Collaborates With Area Employers to Create Safer Nashville for Employees and Visitors

Vanderbilt Health is making news for exciting new alliances to create a safer city in which to live, play and work. On May 28, Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp., in collaboration with Vanderbilt Health and Ryman Hospitality Partners, launched the Good to Go program to offer enhanced safety and best practices for Nashville-area businesses as they begin reopening. Good to Go asks Nashville-area businesses to commit to health standards from the Metro Public Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It also gives businesses access to toolkits and support to help carry out the recommendations in a way that is consistent across Music City. Vanderbilt Health’s leading infectious disease experts helped develop key elements of the program and will be involved with ongoing learning and information sharing.

The program launch comes on the heels of May 21’s announcement of the Ryman Hospitality Properties choosing Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) as its wellness advisor. VUMC is providing support to the Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc., as it continues to refine the reopening operating procedures, plans and training materials as part of a multi-phase health safety operations strategy for its entertainment assets and Gaylord Hotels network.
