Hospital Saint-Damien (Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs), Tabarre

St. Damien Hospital is a pediatric hospital that offers best pediatric treatments in Haiti at a nominal cost. In 1998, after the submission of an investigative report on the nonexistence pediatric medical facility in Haiti by Father Richard Kay, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) opened the first pediatric hospital, 'St. Damien' in an abandoned hotel in Petionville. Father Kay is well known in Haiti for his orphanage named St Helena intended for orphans and abandoned children.

The present St. Damien Hospital in Tabarre was opened in December 2006 to accommodate more children by replacing the earlier set up. The hospital is funded through the donations from benefactors from all around the world, especially in the U.S. and Europe. The devastating earthquake of 2010 has completely destroyed the 2006 building. Today, St. Damien Hospital in Tabarre is a referral center that provides high quality medical treatment for disadvantaged and sick children in Haiti. Most of the patients come here to treat infectious diseases like tuberculosis, HIV, malaria or kidney infection, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
