Clarke family appreciative of medical assistance renderedPOSTED: 07/13/12 11:47 AM
St. Maarten – When John Clarke, who resides on St Maarten, invited his wife Marcia Jones to spend 10 days with him he had no idea what was in store but less than 24 hours after her arrival, she was practically at death’s door. That was over a month ago, but when Clark relayed what he experienced yesterday he was still in an emotional state as he reminisced on that day when a team of professionals came to his wife’s rescue.
“At about 2:00 p.m. on Monday the 11th, which for all practical purposes was the onset of rush hour, an ambulance was called. Within ten minutes of the call, EMS was on the scene of the Simpson Bay Resort & Marina, prepped and ready to transport my wife to the hospital. What followed, was not only expected but most graciously appreciated and we later learnt, my wife was literally in the throws of taking her last breath,” Clarke stated.
According to Clark, it had to be the meticulous attention to detail by the attending physicians that caused his wife to be alive today.
“I am convinced that it was the timely intervention by the employees of the Simpson Bay Resort & Marina and the professionalism by the EMS crew and in particular that of the St Maarten Medical Center whose staff was found to be especially adept at the skills they employed in the most critical time of need. I would’ve been minus my wife today,” Clarke said.
Clarke wishes to extend his heartfelt thanks to EMS and the St Maarten Medical Center who have all played a role in the caring for his wife. He took the liberty to single out Dr. Theo Jolles, Meandra Hazel, Rajan Dihal, Sidocia Thomas, Magda Dawse and Kendra Caines.
