POSTED: 03/19/13 1:35 AM

GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) unveiled a new website yesterday, one day after the operational anniversary of the hospital.

The new website is designed to provide internet users with up to date information about the Medical Center. Patients can be ‘prepped’ for their hospital experience by obtaining useful information and tips within the Patient Care web pages. The website provides visiting information for family and friends and also serves as a channel for job seekers who are interested in having a career at the hospital.

As the primary medical institution for St. Maarten and neighboring territories, an informative and user friendly website is an important aspect of our communications. “We want our website to serve as the primary source for information about our institution,” HR/Communications Manager Juliëtte Hassell said.

On Sunday, the website will go live at the URL www.smmc.sx. “We are also pleased to be among the early group of users supporting the new domain name for St. Maarten .sx. Finding our website will be easy for internet users searching for our website with the ‘short name’ SMMC,” Hassell continued.

The other web addresses, www.sxmmc.org and www.sintmaartenmedicalcenter.org, are still open for persons using those links will be directed to the new website.

“We want our patient care experience to begin at your homes and on your mobiles with a comprehensive knowledge of our institution and we are proud to do so by providing a simple and user friendly experience on our website. We invite you to visit our pages,” Hassell said.

The new website will be on display at the Lions Health and Wellness fair on Saturday, this is an opportunity for persons to navigate the website and give feedback about their web experience.

As a continuation of International Women’s Day, Women’s Health will be a featured topic at the Health and Wellness fair, particularly Hypertension during Pregnancy. Hypertension is one of the most frequent ailments in St. Maarten. This is not only a challenge to St. Maarten; in fact, Hypertension is this year’s theme for World Health Day on April 7. The hospital has chosen to address this health topic by providing useful information and high blood pressure screenings at the fair.  The community is invited to attend and visit the hospital booth.
