Governor Haslam and I toured St. Jude’s genomics labs in the Chili Care Center as well as areas under construction in “Tower 2” that will eventually house St. Jude’s proton radiation and Global Education and Collaboration Center (GECC) facilities.

The Tower 2 construction is a $198.8M project that is scheduled to be completed in November 2014. The tower and services are part of campus-wideconstruction projects totaling $357.1M that are scheduled to be completed by 2018. By this time St. Jude’s annual operating budget will be expected to have increased to $809M from the current $702M, and employment is expected to rise to 4,707 from the current 4,198.
