Englewood Cliffs, NJ (PressExposure) June 06, 2011 -- Who:
When late entertainer Danny Thomas opened the doors to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in 1962, he was not just changing the lives of children who would walk through its doors-he was changing lives across the world. When St. Jude completed its $1 billion, five-year expansion in 2005, it bolstered the hospital's efforts to find cures for the catastrophic diseases of childhood. The growth more than doubled the size of the hospital's original campus. The expansion included the Children's GMP, LLC-the nation's only pediatric research center on-site facility for production of highly specialized treatments and vaccines-an expanded Department of Immunology and more. Now with the addition of the Chili's Care Center, a larger, rejuvenated Kay Kafe cafeteria for employees and patients, and renovations to the medicine room and rehabilitation areas, the hospital is more poised than ever to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
