The After Completion of Therapy (ACT) Clinic and clinics for Infectious Diseases, Hematology, Hepatology, and Endocrine are located in the Kmart St. Jude Life Center. Patients in these clinics have their primary visits in the Kmart St. Jude Life Center. It is open Monday through Friday 7 am–5 pm.
St. Jude takes findings from our research labs and translate (turn) them into patient treatments. Many researchers at St. Jude work to create new drugs, vaccines, and other methods for preventing or treating diseases. Research studies with patients are held in the St. Jude Life Center.
Sometimes people in the community take part in studies. At times you may see adults and children who are not usual St. Jude patients at the Kmart St. Jude Life Center. But just because your child has a planned visit in this building does not mean he will take part in one of these studies.
The Kmart St. Jude Life Center is located in the long, red building next to the Barry/Longinotti Building north of the hospital. Shuttle bus service is offered throughout the day between the Patient Care Center, the Chili’s Care Center, and the Kmart St. Jude Life Center.
The Kmart St. Jude Life Center is one of the elements that makes St. Jude one of the world's premier centers for research and treatment of catastrophic diseases in children.
