Dr. Angelica Arrindell’s physician’s practice suspended by St. Maarten Inspectorate


PHILIPSBURG–The Inspectorate of Public Health has suspended all medical activities by Dr. Angelica Arrindell temporarily as of Monday, June 24, until further notice.

Inspector General Dr. Earl Best said in a press release on Friday that the Inspectorate believes that it is no longer responsible to have Arrindell continue her practice at Madame Estate Health Care Centre, Rembrandplein Unit 4, for the time being, based on a thorough evaluation of complaints received regarding Arrindell’s performance as a general practitioner and indications of her health status.

Based on the national ordinance “LV Inspectie (PB 2003 no 8 art. 2 and 11),” the Inspectorate is the authority tasked with the supervision of the health care sector and enforcement within it.

The suspension will be re-evaluated after the Inspectorate has received more information on Arrindell’s health status.

Arrindell is allowed to make necessary arrangements with a qualified replacement physician to provide continuity of care to her patients for the duration of the suspension.

“She has to make this known to her patients by a press release and at her office location. If she can’t arrange for qualified replacement, she must notify the Inspectorate and all health insurance companies immediately. It is then up to the insurance companies to take the necessary steps to ensure continuity of care to their clients,” Best said.
