St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

October 18, 2012

Provincial Initiative for the Western Province

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is dedicated towards advancing cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or the family’s ability to pay.

St. Jude’s vision is to be the world’s leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of diseases in children. Their values of ethical behavior are an important part of who they are, and their incorporation into the fabric of the institution directly impacts our ability to make progress toward achieving our Mission, while simultaneously strengthening our reputation.

  • A commitment to provide our patients with the highest quality of medical and supportive care, and their families with the level of information and support necessary for them to make informed decisions and to become active participants in the care of their children.
  • A commitment to respect the ethnic, cultural, religious and lifestyle differences of patients, their families, our colleagues and our supporters.
  • A commitment to our donors that every dollar donated will be wisely spent toward achieving our Mission of advancing cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic disease through research and treatment.
  • A commitment to a culture of excellence, innovation and creativity, not only in our research, but in everything we do.
  • A drive and a sense of urgency to succeed.
  • Honesty, integrity, and accountability in our actions and decisions.
  • A commitment to social responsibility and institutional citizenship on a local, state, national and global level.

There are many ways to get involved with St. Jude. You can participate in walks to benefit, or have a fundraiser benefiting St. Jude. You can coordinate an event on your campus, or volunteer at an event near your campus. Your chapter can sponsor an event, or even create a new fundraising opportunity and submit the idea directly to St. Jude.
