Management and staff of St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) bid farewell to Pediatrician Dr. Pieter Offringa during a ceremony held recently at SMMC. The well-wishing ceremony included remarks from Medical Director Dr. Felix Holiday, Nursing Educator Brunilda Illidge, Pediatrics Supervisor Nurse Gwen Arndell, Obstetrics and Gynecology Supervisor Nurse Sherryl Carty-Fleming and many others who have all worked with Dr. Offringa for a number of years.
Dr. Offringa’s tenure at SMMC spanned an exciting and memorable 26 years and many of the memories shared had a central theme of him going above and beyond for his patients, the children of St. Maarten and their parents, many of whom now have children themselves. Dr. Offringa has been succeeded by Dr. Martijn Tilanus and Dr. Thibisay Morvan-Navas, both of whom who have already been practicing at the hospital.
Management of SMMC thanks Dr. Offringa for his years of service and dedication to the children of St. Maarten and wishes him well in his future endeavors.
