Stay updated on campus changes during construction

St. Jude is constructing 2 new 15-story buildings. One will house the hospital’s outpatient clinics. The other will contain clinical offices. They will be built between Chili’s Care Center and North 3rd Street.

Work on these buildings affects parking and access to the hospital. Check this page for ongoing updates.

Keep your child safe during construction

Construction activities at St. Jude create dust. This dust contains fungal spores. Children with weak immune systems are at risk for fungal infections if they breathe in these spores.

Please make sure that your child wears an N95 duck-bill face mask when outdoors. You can get these masks at security desks in the hospital and at reception desks in The Domino’s Village and Tri Delta Place. 

Please also follow these safety guidelines:

  • Take shuttle buses when possible.
  • Do not walk near construction zones.
  • Limit your child’s time outdoors.
  • If your child is hospitalized, do not let them go outside.
