Equip Mirebalais Hospital - January 2012 update

With only a few months until Mirebalais Hospital opens, workers strive to complete the entrance to the new hospital. Roughly 500 patients a day will soon find health care through these doors.

Some will come seek life-saving emergency treatment, others will arrive for routine care and check-ups. All will receive the highest-level of care at this state-of-the-art hospital, run in partnership with Haiti's Ministry of Health.

Once the hospital is running at full capacity, it will have over 30 outpatient consultation rooms, six operating rooms, and space to host trainings with over 200 participants. It will offer innovative technology — some of which was previously unavailable in Haiti — including digital radiography, a full-body CT scanner, teleconferencing capabilities, solar panels that will fully power the hospital during the day, on-site waste water treatment, and wall-mounted oxygen for over 60 percent of inpatient beds. The hospital is also designed to withstand earthquakes and high-winds from tropical storms.
