SMMC provides high quality, accessible and affordable hospital care in the best interest of the patient, by closely cooperating with strategic partners, within a safe environment with motivated, qualified and competent staff.
SMMC is the general hospital that guarantees high quality hospital case based on patients' needs, to residents and visitors of St. Maarten and her surrounding islands close to home.
The St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) opened its doors on March 17th, 1991, as the successor of St. Rose Hospital. SMMC is a non-profit organization that manages and carries out hospital functions 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 and Anguilla as well as others in the region. Our facility has 66 inpatient beds and employs approximately 300 personnel.
There are twenty-two attending specialists affiliated with the organization. Few of the medical specialists are not in service of the SMMC, but 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.
Our friendly staff continuously strives to offer safe and high quality care.
