Jack Martin Fund gives $3.5M to Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital

The Jack Martin Fund has donated $3.5 million to New York City-based Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital.

The donation will be used to fund a new, 2,400-square-foot pediatric radiology center as well as research at Mount Sinai Children's Brain and Spinal Tumor Center. 

"The Jack Martin Fund Child and Adolescent Imaging Center will help transform the way we care for children with cancer by providing imaging that is critical for diagnosis and treatment," Lisa Satlin, MD, pediatrician-in-chief of the hospital, said in an Aug. 3 press release. "By opening the door to new treatments and discoveries, the Center will increase the number of clinical trials we're able to offer these young patients."

The new center will feature specific suites for MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and CT services. These rooms will also have reduced radiation exposure measures. Other additions include an interactive waiting room, a reading room and therapy dogs to comfort children as they wait for testing.

The Jack Martin Fund has supported the hospital for over 70 years and donated over $40 million.
