SMMC’s Eye Care Clinic Waiting List to be Reduced

Phillipsburg – The St. Maarten Medical (SMMC) is implementing measures in an effort to reduce the current waiting list at the SMMC Eye Care Clinic.

In an effort to reduce the current waiting list at the Eye Care Clinic, the capacity of Ophthalmology services will be increased starting July 22, 2019 by means of 1 additional Ophthalmologist on a 2-week rotational basis, this means that during two weeks per month, two Ophthalmologists will be present to provide patient care; in addition, another measure taken to reduce the waiting list is that the Eye Care Clinic opening hours will be
temporarily extended. The clinic will be open to see patients from 8.00 am – 8.00 pm during the weeks that two Ophthalmologists are present.

By taking the abovementioned measures SMMC expects that the waiting list will be reduced and patients can see the Ophthalmologist sooner, resulting in regular appointment wait times reinforcing SMMC’s mission of providing quality care, close to home.
