HistoryEdit

The main hospital of Curaçao used to be the Sint-Elisabeth Hospital which also had a regional function for speciality care for the other islands of the Dutch Antilles.[3] The hospital was constructed in 1855, and was no longer up to international standards. In 2011, it was decided to construct a new hospital next to the existing hospital.[4] The Curaçao Medical Center opened on 15 November 2019,[2] and all the existing patients were moved to the new hospital.[5] The hospital was fully operational in one week.[6]
