A non-profit pediatric research and patient care hospital, St. Jude is internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer, sickle cell disease, HIV, and other diseases. The hospital focuses on the advancement of scientific knowledge and its rapid translation into new therapies for children. St. Jude is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. St. Jude is also recognized as a Nurse Magnet site by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. St. Jude collaborates with domestic and international affiliates and partners and disseminates scientific data freely via the internet and publications so that children may benefit from it wherever they live.
