Located in Nashville, Tennessee, and operating at a global crossroads of teaching, discovery and patient care, VUMC is a community of individuals who come to work each day with the simple aim of changing the world. It is a place where your expertise will be valued, your knowledge expanded and your abilities challenged. It is a place where your diversity — of culture, thinking, learning and leading — is sought and celebrated. It is a place where employees know they are part of something that is bigger than themselves, take exceptional pride in their work and never settle for what was good enough yesterday. Vanderbilt's mission is to advance health and wellness through preeminent programs in patient care, education, and research.
We are dedicated to serving the Vanderbilt University Medical Center patients, departments and enterprise.
Our department receives, sorts and delivers campus mail for all Medical Center departments, and maintains the master list of Medical campus mail addresses. We are also a licensed contract station of the United States Postal Service, and we interface with the USPS each day to dispatch, receive, sort and deliver U.S. mail for the core Medical Center buildings. In addition, we operate a retail service window which provides stamp sales and most other services available at any US Post Office. We strive to provide excellent customer service that meets or exceeds the Medical Center's requirements and our contract obligations to the USPS.
Our operation includes eight Mail Clerks, one Mail Clerk Lead, a Department Assistant, and a Manager shared with other areas. We do not operate any vehicles, but deliver mail solely within the main VUMC complex.
