Hospital Sacre Coeur, Milot

Hospital Sacré Coeur (HSC) with 122 beds is the largest private hospital in the town of Milot in the Northern Haiti. It was constructed by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart of the Montreal Province (founder of CRUDEM or Center for the Rural Development of Milot) in 1986. However, 'the Hôpital Sacré Coeur' they built was a simple building with an operating room without any equipment or surgeon. The building gradually took the shape of a real hospital when Dr. Ted Dubuque, a surgeon from St. Louis, Missouri joined there in 1986. Dr. Dubuque had promised God that if he recovers from a near fatal illness that he was once suffering, he would spend his life helping others. He was cured and kept his promise. He traveled to Milot, spent six months at HSC and performed 250 surgeries during his first visit. The hospital statistics for the year 2013: 49,743 outpatient visits, 5,906 hospital admissions, 119,076 laboratory tests, 2,966 X-rays processed, 1,236 newborn deliveries, 1,956 surgical procedures, 11,143 patients tested for HIV, 178 children treated as inpatients for severe malnutrition. Every year CRUDEM publishes the schedule of their visiting surgeons on their website.
