Founded as the Comprehensive Care Center in 1994 to provide care to the people of Middle Tennessee living with HIV/AIDS, the clinic entered into a clinical practice agreement with the Vanderbilt Medical Group in 2010 and became known as Vanderbilt Comprehensive Care Clinic. 

The clinic provides services that include medical evaluation and follow-up care, medical case management, access to screening and clinical trials, medication reconciliation and adherence counseling, as well as mental health services.
