Hospital Immaculée Conception, Les Cayes

After the devastating earthquake of 2010, the reconstruction of the Maternity Hospital Immaculate Conception of Les Cayes started with the laying of foundation stone on September 12, 2011. The reconstruction project received a funding of 15 million Gourdes from the government and its partners in MSPP (National Department of Public Health and Population) under American support program of Presidential Emergency Plan for Aids Relief. It was decided that a temporary hanger would be converted to accommodate patients. Dr. Marie Josette Calixte did welcome the reconstruction initiative and stressed the importance to improve the future quality of service offered. In spite of insufficient fund and limited facilities, the four departments of the hospital, viz., maternity, pediatric, surgery and emergency had always remained busy. However, the service of the hospital never remained free from criticism, like, Medicines were sold at black market price, medical cares were mostly provided by student-trainees, and many others. However, the patronage of the Cuban government through own doctors and funding were well accepted.
