Hopital Ste. Croix - Leogane, Haiti

"Hospital St. Croix- Leogane, Haiti" is a Leogane based hospital under the ownership of the Episcopal Church of Haiti (EEH) that operates in association with the American the Presbyterian Church. The hospital has 120 general beds for patients. The medical programs of the hospital were initiated by Reverend Pierre Thevenot in 1968 with the donation of a small dispensary by Mrs. Edith Cutler who was a regular patron of many important programs undertaken by the Episcopal Church. In the beginning, under the initial physician-directorship of Dr. Etienne, the dispensary had space for two wards only without any inpatient bed. Thereafter, in 1973-74, with the construction of expanded facilities, EEH entered into a partnership with the U.S. Presbyterian Church based in Atlanta.

Hospital St. Croix- Leogane was created out of a call by the Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF) in 1963 to involve committed Presbyterian physicians to serve others around the world. Today it is a fully functional hospital that serves over 250,000 people in the area through its 24 hours emergency room, four operating rooms and laboratory testing facilities. It also trains and supplies several hundred midwives and community health workers to the more remote regions of the country.
