About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases, St. Jude is ranked among the best pediatric cancer hospitals in the nation. It is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted only to children.
Founded in Memphis, Tennessee by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors in 1962, and has treated children from all 50 states and throughout the world. St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20% at the time of our founding to the current 80%.
You may be wondering: What is it like to be part of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital? We think it’s the most inspiring place imaginable to collaborate with other talented, committed individuals who want to help children facing catastrophic illnesses live longer, better lives.
One of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” by FORTUNE magazine (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014,) we offer an open, friendly work environment where you can become an active partner in a cause that is so much greater than anything you might accomplish within a more traditional medical setting.
