Caring Committment to Excellence 


Our Mission

Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God.

Our Values

From the trauma rooms to the cafeteria line, our employees strive each day to serve our patients and families with caring, commitment and excellence in mind. These three words – caring, commitment and excellence – describe how we treat your child and your family, and they are why we are one of the best pediatric health care institutions in the country.


At Cardinal Glennon, we care for children and their families with knowledge and expertise, understanding and patience, and always with respect. Our pediatricians, nurses and other health care professionals are trained to care specifically for children. Playrooms on patient floors give kids a needed break from their hospital rooms, and Volunteers and Child Life specialists make sure every day is new and refreshing.


We are committed not only to healing children today, but also finding new ways to help them get well in the future. At our Pediatric Research Institute, physicians and other researchers combine their expertise in different specializations to find cures for diseases that affect children. The Saint Louis Cord Blood Bank located at Cardinal Glennon is the second largest in the world, and provides hope each day for patients through the miracle of umbilical cord blood stem cell research and treatment.


As medicine and technology continue to advance, our team of SLUCare physicians changes and adapts practices to ensure the best treatment for your child. Sharing a recovery room with another family is no longer the case at Cardinal Glennon. Our private patient rooms give families their own space, and have pull-out beds for overnight stays.
