Taams clinic in trouble

Taams ClinicWILLEMSTAD - Things are not well at the Taams clinic. Inpatient admissions have already stopped, and according to medical director of the clinic Earl Esseboom it is a matter of days before the plug is pulled.

For some time, the clinic has struggled to keep the operation rooms and the sleep disorder unit operating. Esseboom says that in the operating room, they only perform surgeries that cost money. Surgeries that require inpatient admissions are no longer possible, according to the medical director.

Suppliers and banks have supported the Taams clinic for a long time. But in the meantime, there have been several seizures. Because of this, there is a lack of certain drugs and materials that are necessary in order to perform various operations. Esseboom states that the clinic has to close its doors unless help comes from the government.
