Hopital Ste. Croix - Leogane, Haiti

"Hospital St. Croix- Leogane, Haiti" is a Leogane based hospital under the ownership of the Episcopal Church of Haiti (EEH) that operates in association with the American the Presbyterian Church. The hospital has 120 general beds for patients. The medical programs of the hospital were initiated by Reverend Pierre Thevenot in 1968 with the donation of a small dispensary by Mrs. Edith Cutler who was a regular patron of many important programs undertaken by the Episcopal Church. In the beginning, under the initial physician-directorship of Dr. Etienne, the dispensary had space for two wards only without any inpatient bed. Thereafter, in 1973-74, with the construction of expanded facilities, EEH entered into a partnership with the U.S. Presbyterian Church based in Atlanta.

Hospital St. Croix- Leogane was created out of a call by the Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF) in 1963 to involve committed Presbyterian physicians to serve others around the world. Today it is a fully functional hospital that serves over 250,000 people in the area through its 24 hours emergency room, four operating rooms and laboratory testing facilities. It also trains and supplies several hundred midwives and community health workers to the more remote regions of the country.

Hospital Saint-Francois de Sales, Haiti

Hospital Saint-Francois de Sales, Haiti

St. François de Sales Hospital has been recently designated as a university teaching hospital under the University of Notre Dame of Haiti. The hospital was established in Port-au-Prince in 1881. Before the earthquake in 2010, the hospital employed 291 people and had 117 beds. The devastating earthquake destroyed 80% of the hospital building and took lives of nearly 140 patients and staff members.

Since the violent tremor, it is operating in tents, offering simple acceptable level of comfort and quality care. Now, at the original site of St. François de Sales Hospital in the heart of Port-au-Prince, a modern, 120-plus bed teaching hospital is taking shape. During the period of construction, the present facilities will relocate temporarily--for about 12 to18 months, to the Grand Seminary of Notre Dame of Cazeau, approximately twelve miles from the current site.

high death toll from human rabies in Haiti

Rabies in Haiti has been on the rise since the 2010 earthquake. The disaster made many pets homeless, especially stray dogs. Rabies is lethal. Once a victim has been bitten by an infected animal, death is a certainty.

The first line of prevention lies in getting dogs and cats regularly vaccinated. When bitten by an infected animal the first thing is to wash the bite thoroughly with soap and water, then contact a medical professional immediately.

Some 25% of Haitian children suffer from intestinal parasites

Some 25% of Haitian children suffer from intestinal parasites

It is estimated that close to 25% of Haitian children are suffering from intestinal parasites.

A study conducted by Ministry of Public Health and Population; Ministry of Education, and National Directorate of Water Supply and Sanitation reveals 25% of children from 6 to 15 are infected with intestinal parasites.

Haiti has no quarantine law, and Haitians don't understand the deadly consequences of the parasites: abdominal pain, anemia, memory loss, and in some cases death.

Mobile school clinics have been deworming the student population ". . . but re-contamination is problematic."

Grace Children's Hospital and Pediatric Clinic in Haiti

Grace Children's Hospital and Pediatric Clinic in Haiti

In the early 1960s, when the founders of the International Child Care Jim and Virginia Snavley visited Haiti for the first time they were shocked to witness the sight of dying children in the street from malnutrition, tuberculosis and many other illnesses. They felt God's call to stand by these destitute and opened a small clinic--this is how Grace Children's Hospital and Pediatric Clinic began. For the last 40 years, Grace Children's Hospital has served millions of individuals who came to its door regardless of every circumstance, belief and background. In the beginning there were a handful of beds with limited facilities but gradually the support and capacity began to grow with the thanks to the help of International Child Care, Churches, General Board of Global Ministries and individuals. After the 2010 earthquake, in addition to its continuing regular programs on inpatient and outpatient departments, the hospital served as the main food and water distribution center.
