SMMC* is an autonomous non-governmental organization. The foundation consists of two bodies, the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Council. The responsibility for the daily management lies upon the Board of Directors while the responsibility of the Supervisory Council spans supervising the organization strategy and general developments of the hospital.


* SMMC has recently (November 30th, 2018) adopted new Statutes of Incorporation and officially will continue as Foundation St. Maarten General Hospital (SMGH) as it transitions towards becoming the new General Hospital of St. Maarten. The construction project for the new hospital is slated to be completed in 2022 (with the main building being ready for move in by the end of 2021). The organization will continue doing business as St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) until the physical transition to the new hospital has been completed or until further notice.
