POSTED: 04/4/13 1:00 PM

St. Maarten – The Supervisory Council of St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) is pleased to announce that Yvonne van Ameijden has been appointed as the Interim Financial Director and Chairperson of the Board of Directors of SMMC as of April 1, a press release of the hospital stated yesterday.

Van Ameijden holds a master’s degree in Strategic Business Administration. She has a vast experience in top management positions in various health care organizations including a nurse care and home care organization with over 1200 employees and being the operations manager for the laboratories and pharmacy division of the University Hospital of Utrecht, as well as holding a position as interim manager at ADC in Curacao from 2002 to 2003. As interim manager she has assisted diverse organizations with the development of quality improvements, cost reductions and development and implementation of strategic policy measures.

“After executing an extensive interview process with several candidates we believe that Mrs. van Ameijden is a good fit for the interim position at the hospital and we are very pleased that she has accepted,” Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth Chairman of the Supervisor Council of the hospital said.

The review of the organizational structure is one of the priorities of the St. Maarten Medical Center. Mid last year, the St. Maarten Medical Center has commissioned an independent agency to conduct an organizational scan of the hospital. Based on that, the Supervisory Council has decided to fill the Board of Directors with two positions: a Financial Director and a Medical Director.

Currently the open recruitment process to fill that position in the Board of Directors for the long term is ongoing. This is a separate process that is not connected to the interim position.
“St. Maarten Medical Center will continue as usual, to work towards improving the level and quality of care for the benefit of all the residents of St. Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius and surrounding islands. We look forward to doing so in collaboration with our stakeholders,” the press release stated.
