Hoe lijkt het u om kerst te vieren op Sint Maarten?

Geplaatst in Ervaringen op 8 december 2016 door Claudia Koning

We asked the St. Maarten Medical Center – a 76-bed hospital on Dutch St. Maarten – to give some insight about working on the island. Get acquainted with this hospital on the beautiful island of St. Maarten and get the feel of a tropical Christmas!

A move you won't regret!

“Taking the career leap toward working and living in St. Maarten is one move you won’t regret. Working and residing on the island can be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Not only do you get to savor balmy and warm breezes, you also get to enjoy an attractive lifestyle in a professional environment.

At the SMMC our staff works in a pleasant and rewarding work atmosphere. In our dynamic hospital, we have career paths for everyone. Whether you are trained in a particular medical specialty, adept in administration and finance, skilled in information technology, facility, maintenance, culinary or human resources, we have a place for you.

As a growing organization we are continuously seeking professionals to meet the growing demand with our patient population. Currently there are vacancies at the SMMC, listed below:

  • Hospital pharmacist
  • Neurologist

  • Orthopeadic Surgeon

The SMMC boasts a warm, friendly atmosphere for our employees and patients. Throughout the year the pleasantries are shared amongst everyone in our community. This time of the year the atmosphere becomes charming with the Christmas holidays forthcoming.

What is Christmas like on St. Maarten?

With the approaching Christmas holidays you may wonder, what is Christmas like on St. Maarten?

The hospital and the entire island of St. Maarten becomes a very magical place during the Christmas holidays. The holiday is always associated with the wonderful sounds and smells of the season. A visit to a house brings on an array of smells filled with cakes, tarts, ginger beer, and mauby and most times new or redone furniture.

Walking thru the streets one would hear Christmas music - both religious and secular, church bells, special radio programs. Many may consider St. Maarten to be a ‘melting pot’ of cultures and traditions. Often the music of the season reflects local culture during Christmas it’s not uncommon to hear Christmas carols in various music genres.


In St. Maarten, you'll be treated to images of Santa, messages of joy and a blending of old and new Christmas traditions. This is no doubt the reason why many persons from St. Maarten who live abroad prefer to go "home" for Christmas. It's not the same anywhere else.

At the SMMC we recruit qualified employees for our organization and as such you work in a team of skilled professionals. We believe that your career is yours; you choose your path and make it work for you. If you are willing to contribute your knowledge and skills to continue improving quality healthcare then you would fit well at the St. Maarten Medical Center. And if the Christmas you're dreaming of is filled with white sand beaches, warm sunshine, sparkling blue waters, waving palm trees and fun loving locals, in St. Maarten is where you want to be.”
