Martin Named Memorial Medical Center Colleague of the Month for April
Samantha Martin, patient access specialist, is the Memorial Medical Center Colleague of the Month for April.
Martin said she goes the extra mile to ensure patient safety and takes the time to know her patients on a personal level. “The most rewarding part of my job is meeting close to 60 people every day, and learning about them and what I can do to make this visit to Memorial Medical Center a little better for them,” Martin said.
Martin was nominated by four colleagues, who echoed the same sentiments: Martin goes above and beyond with each patient, however she can – offering wheelchairs, water and crackers, blankets, an extra oxygen tank if the patient requires it. Even on her breaks, Martin can be seen picking up trash outside of the facility or helping a patient to his or her vehicle or bus stop.
“She clearly loves her job and values her role in patient care,” one of the nominators said.
Martin moved to Springfield from La Crosse, Wisconsin, about three years ago and enjoys exploring her new home with her dog, Lola Mae.
