Vanderbilt University Medical Center to Open ‘Transgender Health’ Clinic
“comprehensive health care services for transgender patients age 18 and older”
Is the transgender population really big enough to warrant this?

Vanderbilt Medical Center opening ‘transgender health’ clinic
The Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) will open a new clinic this month that caters exclusively to “transgender health.”
“The multispecialty clinic provides comprehensive health care services for transgender patients age 18 and older allowing them to receive their care in one location, including primary care and subspecialty consultations with endocrinologists, mental health experts, and surgeons,” VUMC announced Tuesday, noting that services offered at the clinic will include “hormone therapy, lab monitoring, and pre- and post-operative guidance.”
The clinic also “plans to add a mental health provider” to supplement those services, but will not have one at the time of its opening.
When it opens on August 24, the clinic will reside in VUMC’s established walk-in clinic in Tennessee and operate primarily by appointment on Friday afternoons from 1:00-5:00 p.m. However, Focus Middle Tennessee reports that the center plans to move to its own location in early 2019, which will allow it to expand its hours.
Friday afternoon clinics “will be reserved specifically for transgender health care,” but VUMC notes that medical director Shayne Sebold Taylor, MD will “provide comprehensive primary care to LGBT patients during regular clinic hours, Monday through Friday, offering preventive medicine such as immunizations, HIV prevention, and cancer screening with special attention given to nutrition, healthy lifestyle, and chronic disease management. “
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Vanderbilt University Medical Center must have a LOT of money to burn.
Some years ago, I was accepted into a graduate program there. Fortunately, for me, I visited there during the summer. I saw signs of, well let’s just say I saw signs, that were early indicators of where Vanderbilt is today. Upon my return home, I wrote them withdrawing my acceptance. So,, very glad I did so.
What is the point? “Women’s health” is a politically-correct euphemism for abortion. That isn’t going to apply much to “trans” anything. So, what does “transgender health” really mean? What is this clinic going to do that existing clinics don’t do, or can’t do, or won’t do?
Perhaps someone donated a bag of money and they need to burn it up.
What this means is that transgender’s will have a lower quality of healthcare, since they cannot choose their own doctors, and are stuck with the ones the school provides.
A trans health clinic is a hospital for the insane.
Ethics in medicine? “Do no harm….?”
Why are they feeding a delusion?
It’s mental illness.
