Summary

After the 2010 earthquake destroyed the public teaching hospital in Port-au-Prince, PIH built a world-class, 300 bed teaching hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti. University Hospital is now five years old, has so far enrolled 300,000 patients, and offers countless services: outpatient and inpatient care, emergency care, oncology, radiology, women's health, surgery and mental health. Your support equips the hospital with the staff and stuff it needs to provide care and save lives each day.

Challenge

Prior to 2010, most Haitians already faced a huge void of accessible, high quality health care. After that year's earthquake, which destroyed the country's only public teaching hospital, it became clearer than ever that Haiti needed a new, accessible, large-scale hospital that could provide care - from primary care to emergency services to complex surgeries - and that could train a new generation of local health professionals.

Solution

PIH's University Hospital has been providing wide-ranging, world-class care since 2013. The hospital performs as many as 700 outpatient visits a day and has 300 beds. All of this care is free -- filling the void, locally in Mirebalais and nationally across Haiti, for people who previously had limited or no access to quality health care.

Long-Term Impact

University Hospital is training the next generation of doctors, nurses and other clinical workers so that Haiti grows a more and more robust health care industry.
