In 1650, a small group of women went into their neighborhood to build relationships
with the community, understand their needs, and, together with their neighbors,
find solutions. These pioneers were the Sisters of St. Joseph—founders
and leaders who guided St. Joseph Health and its ministries. Nearly 400
years later, that passion and tradition continues through our Community
Each year, St. Jude Medical Center invests time and resources into local
communities to increase access to healthcare for vulnerable populations
and provide local residents with the support they need to make their neighborhoods
healthier and safer.
Through the development and implementation of the key strategic elements
of Community Health, Healthy Communities and Advocacy, we work to generate
positive health outcomes, foster relationships and cooperation, and empower
individuals to care for themselves and others.
St. Jude Medical Center invested $56,613,403 in community benefit in FY15.
