Hospital St Nicolas, Saint-Marc Haiti

Hospital Saint Nicholas in Saint-Marc is a 300-bed facility that was badly hit by the 2010 earthquake and it has been struggling with insufficient medical professionals, equipment and supplies for a long time. In 2011, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund had granted a Fund of $1,812,220 to its sister organization Zanmi Lasante in Haiti to improve the scope and quality of the public health system in the country. The development program undertaken for Hospital Saint Nicolas will improve (a) the present doctor-patient ratio, (b) train new 18 Haitian family practice physicians, (c) retain 80 to 100 local nursing staff who will further train 1,000 health workers, and (d) increase the scope and quality of health care provided by Hospital Saint Nicholas as a referral hospital for the 1.5 million inhabitants of Artibonite region. Haiti is a country with high rates of infant mortality (58.0/1,000) where only 24% of births are attended by skilled health personnel and 523 women die for every 100,000 births and 1 in 10 children dies before the age of 5.
