Programs: St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital:
Over 5,000 patients are seen at St. Jude yearly. Most are treated on an outpatient basis, which helps them maintain a sense of normalcy with their families. In addition to the major clinics and treatment areas, an eye clinic, dental clinic, pharmacy, and rehabilitation services are included. The hospital maintains 60 beds for patients requiring hospitalization during treatment.
•St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and all over the world.
•Patients are accepted by physician referral based on the patient's eligibility for an ongoing treatment study, regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, religion, or their inability to pay.
•We are the only pediatric research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay.
•More than 85 cents of every dollar we received during the last three years has gone directly to patient care, research, education and training.

We raise the funds and build awareness to sustain the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment while honoring the memory and heritage of our founder, Danny Thomas.
