Vanderbilt Health will open the new Clinic for Transgender Health on Aug. 24, providing comprehensive health care services for transgender patients age 18 and older, according to a press release on its website. Services offered at the clinic will include hormone therapy, lab monitoring and pre- and post-operative guidance with plans to add a mental health provider. While Friday afternoons will be reserved specifically for transgender health care, the clinic will provide comprehensive primary care to LGBT patients during regular clinic hours, including immunizations, HIV prevention and cancer screenings. The clinic will focus on surgical patients one Friday a month.
