New Partnership Brings Enhanced Healthcare To Residents Sets Butterfield Apart From Rest

Butterfield Trail Village and the University of Arkansas For Medical Sciences (UAMS) Northwest Region are pleased to announce a new partnership that dedicates a UAMS physician onsite at Butterfield to serve residents’ health and medical needs.

Allan Martin, M.D., a family practitioner with UAMS Northwest, began seeing Village residents from a new clinic office at Butterfield on Nov. 20. Dr. Martin, a fellowship trained geriatrician, will provide Butterfield’s independent living residents with a wide range of comprehensive primary care, preventive care and ongoing case management.

These new services position Butterfield Trail Village as the only retirement community in Northwest Arkansas to have a dedicated primary care physician onsite serving its independent living residents.

“We are pleased to partner with UAMS as the state’s leader in medical excellence to provide quality care to our residents with convenient onsite services – located here where they need it most,” Butterfield CEO Quintin Trammell said. “This partnership not only strengthens the delivery of healthcare to Village residents, but it sets Butterfield apart from the other retirement community options in Northwest Arkansas.”

Serving Butterfield residents will be Dr. Martin’s principal medical practice. He will see residents at his Butterfield clinic on weekday mornings Monday through Friday. On afternoons, he and his staff may see residents at the UAMS Northwest campus on North Street in Fayetteville. Dr. Martin may also make Village house calls.

Robert Gullett, Jr., M.D., Director, Regional Center at UAMS Northwest, said the option exists to expand Dr. Martin’s clinic hours at Butterfield to meet needs as they arise.

Should a special medical need arise, Dr. Martin will coordinate residents’ care among the UAMS network of specialists and laboratory services. If a resident needs to be admitted to the hospital, UAMS Family Medicine physicians will provide care at both Washington Regional Medical Center and Northwest Health in Springdale.

Residents may choose to utilize Dr. Martin as their primary care physician, or see him on an as-needed basis.

“We are building a model of quality care at Butterfield Trail Village, which may serve as a model for other facilities throughout the state,” Gullett said. “Our mission is to help the community wherever the community needs us. Since UAMS is the only center in the state with a medical school, we can offer more in terms of service and expertise, and we’re excited to extend those resources to Butterfield Trail Village.”
