Midtown Medical Clinic (formally Mercuur Medical) was the first clinic in St Maarten to integrate customer care based medical practices in an efficient and professional manner. The team members were chosen for their friendliness, courtesy, educational back ground, and dedication to the health care field. Combined, the Midtown team brings 60+ years of trusted and innovative medical care to our tiny island. We do better every day and continue to expand our knowledge to serve you the best way we know how.
Our team consists of fully trained and professional medical office assistants, Phlebotomist, Red Cross trained CPR/EMR, EMT and Red Cross Instructor, plus Registered Nurses. It is paramount for our team to be ready to serve you should the need arise. Staff are cross trained in several disciplines. We continuously upgrade skills with professional development programs.
Providing care that meets your needs is not always easy when faced with demands to make efficient use of resources. However, it is important to tailor our care to meet your needs. We appreciate patients who research their health issues, bring ideas to the table and work closely with our staff to implement treatment options.
Established in 1995, Midtown Medical has been a leading and well respected health care clinic for over 20 years. Appointments are available daily. Walk in patients can have an average wait of 2 hours.
General Practitioner & Forensic Specialist
Sometimes on a small island it is important to wear several hats and that is truly the case when it comes to Dr. Mercuur. Originally receiving his degree from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands in 1988, his travels took him to several countries where he gained experience working in emergency rooms, military settings, clinic replacement services and public health services.
Once settling in St Maarten and establishing the clinic in 1995, he then furthered his education by receiving a Forensic medicine specialization and Echography certification.
Dr Mercuur was the Police Doctor from 1995 to 2009, assisted in the establishment of the Mental Health Foundation and was a founding board member. Dr Mercuur continued to serve as a general practitioner to the general population and the health care of our resident prison detainees, through out this time.
In 2001, the Joint Court of St Maarten appointed Dr Mercuur the title of Forensic Medical Expert and the government of St Maarten appointed him the Pro Deo Medical Advisor regarding issues of death.
So what does all this mean for you?
It means you are in the most experienced and excellent hands the island has to offer. It means peace of mind for your health care needs.
We appreciate and thank you for choosing Midtown Medical Clinic for your medical needs.
