When Your Clinic is Closed

St. Jude primary clinics are closed on weekends, holidays, and after 5 p.m. on weekdays.

If your child has an urgent need after hours, please call the Infusion Center at 901-595-2441. (This area used to be known as the Medicine Room.)

A nurse and provider will review your child’s information and symptoms. They will decide if your child should be seen at St. Jude or should go to a local emergency room.
