Martin Health System supports clinical research and patient care through its comprehensive network of hospitals, medicenters, emergency centers and outpatient clinics.
With 344 hospital beds and close to 3000 employees, including 400 doctors, plus almost 200,000 hours of volunteer support, the system has won wide acclaim for its standard of care and innovation. The Joint Commission has certified it as a primary stroke center and it also has Commission on Cancer accreditation. Its Robert and Carol Weissman Cancer Center has hosted an average of more than five oncology clinical trials per year since the turn of the century.
The hospital was founded in 1939 by Drs. Julian Parker, Van William Burns and Walter Davey, with the founding principal that patients should have access to medical care regardless of their ability to pay.
