St. Maarten Government signed letter of intent with American Clinic

POSTED: 11/22/12 1:45 PM

St. Maarten – Public Health Minister Cornelius de Weever made the first page of a Memorandum of Understanding available to the media at yesterday’s press briefing about plans to establish a medical tourism facility. The agreement is between the government of St. Maarten and the American Clinic. While the documents refer to the St. Maarten Medical Center, the SMMC is not a party to this agreement.

Minister De Weever also provided a copy of a letter of intent, signed on December 9 of last year between the ministries of Public Health and Tourism and Economic Affairs and the American Clinic. This document does not contain a single reference to the SMMC.

In the letter of intent, the two ministries commit to designate the American Clinic as a provider of medical tourism services, to grant all permits and licenses the company needs for the project and to encourage medical tourism through advertising with the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau.

The American Clinic commits to financing and building the medical facility, to provide high quality specialist services and to restrict its business activity to rendering services to patients generated through the clinic’s medical tourism programs and to patients covered by private insurance.

The clinic “shall refrain from generating patients in St. Maarten that are covered by SZV unless they are referred by the relevant authorities.”
