Antillean Adventist Hospital

Missionary Hospital | Willemstad, Netherlands Antilles

Hospital description

A Seventh-day Adventist run hospital in the Caribbean Islands of the Netherlands Antilles.

The Netherlands Antilles were previously known as the Netherlands West Indies or Dutch Antilles/West Indies. Formed by two groups of islands that form part of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. The two islands Curaçao and Bonaire, are situated just off the Venezuelan coast and belong to the Leeward Antilles; and Sint Eustatius, Saba and Sint Maarten, which are located southeast of the Virgin Islands and are part of the Leeward Islands.

These Dutch islands form an autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The islands’ economy depends mostly upon tourism, international financial services, international commerce, shipping, and petroleum.The head of state of the Netherlands Antilles is the ruling monarch of the Netherlands, who is represented in the Netherlands Antilles by a governor. A council of ministers, chaired by a prime minister, forms the local government. Together with the governor, who holds responsibility for external affairs and defense, it forms the executive branch of the government.

English, Papiamentu, and Dutch are the official languages spoken on the islands but it is worth remembering that Spanish is also becoming increasingly used.

The hospital is run as a Missionary hospital.
