St Maarten Medical Center Foundation

District General Hospital | Philipsburg, Netherlands Antilles

Hospital description

St. Maarten Medical Center is a general hospital serving the community of Dutch St Maarten in the north-eastern Caribbean. Our patient care services also support the surrounding smaller islands such as Saba, Statia, Anguilla as well as others in the region.

SMMC is an autonomous non-governmental organization that opened its doors in 1991. It is supervised by a Government-approved Board of Directors. The daily management lies in the hands of a General Director and a Financial Director, who in turn are assisted by five department heads. The majority of the medical specialists are not in service of the SMMC, but many maintain their private practices on the premises of the hospital. The hospital boasts a diverse nursing staff, recruited locally and internationally to serve the multicultural and multi-lingual needs of the community. The nursing staff is supported by our in-house nationally accredited Education Department, whose task it is to offer training, upgrading and specialization courses in the field of nursing as well as defining patient handling protocols to ensure that SMMC meets the highest standards in patient care

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