Hospital Espoir, Port-au-Prince

The needs for a modern well run good pediatric hospital in Haiti is always great. Hospital Espoir or Hope Hospital has already 20 years of service to its credit. The hospital building that withstood the earthquake of 2010 was first constructed in 1993 to take care of the sick children on an outpatient basis. A year later, in 1994, full pediatric service was ready. Today, the fifty beds Hope Hospital is operating under the guidance of its Medical Director Dr. Max Dernnisante and the Executive Director Dr. Darlene Gousse. After the earthquake, the hospital has added other services like orthopedic and trauma care to meet the needs of patients.

In August 2011, Compassionate Resource Warehouse in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, has donated an ambulance to Hospital Espoir . Besides their regular medical staff, the hospital is supported by outside Haitian specialist doctors. The hospital has two operating rooms, a delivery room, neonatology care, emergency room, departments for ultrasonography, radiology, urology, pharmacy and a laboratory that operates seven days a week.
