The Wide-Ranging Impact of St. Jude Children’s Hospital

With more than 20 years of experience, Ronald Sollitto, DPM, MD, MPH, is the chief executive officer and administrator of Saddle Brook Surgicenter, Inc. In addition to his work at the center, Dr. Ronald Sollitto helps patients through charitable donations to organizations like the Immaculate Heart Academy and the University of Notre Dame. Thanks to Dr. Ronald Sollitto’s annual gifts, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital named a treatment room after him.

Established in 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital uses research and treatment to find cures for life-threatening diseases like cancer that threaten children. The hospital has been the site of a number of remarkable breakthroughs.

– Thanks to its research, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia has increased by 90 percent.

– In 2006, St. Jude developed a treatment for retinoblastoma, an eye cancer, that reduces the size of the tumor without the side effects associated with traditional chemotherapy.

– Scientific findings at St. Jude have helped to develop new cancer drugs, in part due to the hospital’s comprehensive whole genome human cancer data, released for use and research across the world.
