Your Phone call
We want to provide fast and good care so when making your call please keep the following in mind:

Because it is uncommon to use street names on Saba, try to provide detailed information about your location. E.g. name of the house, apartment, landlord, hotel, etc.

If possible, please provide us with a telephone number we can reach you on in case of disconnection.

If you are calling for someone else please try to stay close to the patient when making the call. This way you can answer any questions the medical staff might have regarding the patient’s condition.

Are you on medication? Or do you have any other essential medical information? Please provide us with the details.

Tip: Save the emergency numbers in your phone. That way you always have the number with you in case of an emergency.

Medical Evacuations (MEDEVACS)
The Medical evacuations of our patients take place via regular flight, boat, helicopter and fixed
wing charter. Transport to St. Maarten takes at least one to one and a half hour during the day. Depending on the circumstances this time could be longer.
