Specialty Services

The Howard Memorial Hospital Specialty Clinics are one way we bring specialty care like gynecology, obstetrics, urology, cardiology, pediatrics, and dermatology right to the Nashville community—so patients don’t need to travel outside of their hometown. Each specialist maintains a monthly Nashville schedule, which is updated on a monthly basis and available here. The specialty clinic calendar also indicates contact information for scheduling appointments. 

The specialty clinics are located at the Medical Office Building on 132 Medical Circle, Suite 100, Nashville and the HMH Foundation Medical Office Building at 119 Medical Circle, Nashville. For information on how to schedule an appointment with one of our visiting specialists, please talk with your primary care provider about a referral.
