The history of St. Jude in Memphis

The 901 is our home. More than 50 years ago, entertainer and St. Jude founder Danny Thomas chose to build a research hospital in Memphis open to all children, regardless of a family’s race, religion or ability to pay. 

Despite the tradition of segregation in the South, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital opened the first fully integrated children's hospital in the region Feb. 4, 1962.


St. Jude is grateful for the support of Memphians who challenge themselves to help build brighter futures for children.


Peter, local patient Olivia's dad, started raising funds for St. Jude years before her blood cancer diagnosis. Fundraisers like Peter help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.


Memphians think big and act boldly out of compassion for community.


What's going on in Memphis impacts the world

From neighborhood revitalization to lifesaving research freely shared with doctors worldwide, Memphians embrace the critical roles needed to carry out missions; doing what's right, even when it's not easy.
