Dr. Jonathan Martin, a board-certified pediatric neurosurgeon employed by Connecticut Children's, now sees pediatric patients who need to be evaluated for brain- and nervous-system-related surgical care in Springfield at Baystate Children's Hospital. A decorated Army veteran, Martin received both the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star, among other commendations.
Qualified for exceptional care
Martin received his medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington. He completed his post-graduate education in Washington, DC: his internship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center; his neurosurgery residency at National Capital Region Consortium; and his pediatric neurosurgery residency at Children’s National Medical Center. He is board certified in neurosurgery and pediatric neurosurgery, and is an assistant professor of surgery and neurosurgery at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, of which Connecticut Children's is a clinical affiliate.
This collaboration between Baystate Children's Hospital and Hartford-based Connecticut Children's Medical is the first major outgrowth of several months of collaboration.
"We're committed to increasing our complement of neurological and neurosurgical care for adults and children in western Massachusetts," said Dr. Edward Feldmann, vice president and medical director of neurosciences for Baystate Health. "Thanks to our collaboration with Connecticut Children's, patients can receive care close to home for serious conditions that used to cause them to travel some distance. That's a win for our organizations, our patients and our communities."
