Comprehensive Cancer Center

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. 


Our designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center reflects leading excellence in laboratory, clinical and survivorship research, as well as leadership in education and community outreach. The center was honored to again receive the highest possible score of “exceptional” in our most recent NCI review.
