A Hospital for the People of Léogâne (video)

In the mid-1970’s, Presbyterians partnered with Haiti’s Episcopal Church (EEH) to build Holy Cross Hospital. It's the only hospital of its kind in the Léogâne area, which was at the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake. Holy Cross Hospital was damaged but remained standing after the quake. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) sent $200,000 in emergency funds to the hospital and local nursing school immediately following the disaster. The Haiti Response Team later sent another $775,000 to repair and improve the facility. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2012.
