Christ for all Health Center (Hopital Christ Pour Tous)
The HCM clinic, Christ For All Health Center, serves a population of 80,000 people who have very few other options for healthcare. The center, staffed with Haitian physicians, nurses, assistants and lab technicians operates a day clinic Monday through Friday. It remains open 24 hours a day to provide inpatient care and emergency services.
The OB/GYN center, located next to the Christ for All Health Center, was built in 2008 as a cooperative effort with Project Haiti Heart and the Taiwanese government. It contains a delivery room, consultation room, operating room, ten-bed patient room, sterilization room, storage space, bathrooms and showers. Each year, the center serves over 1,600 women in labor. HCM employs three midwives that are on call 24/7.
Surgicenter for Hope
The Higgins Brothers Surgicenter for Hope was financed in large part by Dr. Ted Higgins and is named for his father and uncle, both physicians. Dr. Ted has had a heart for Haiti since 1981. During his fourth year of general surgery residency at Yale, he and his wife, Kim, spent a three-month rotation at Hospital Albert Schweitzer in DesChapelles, Haiti. They were touched by the Haitian people, their culture, and their needs.
Transportation is a major obstacle for many people in Haiti and for that reason, along with a lack of finances and the shortage of medical facilities, many people have no access to healthcare. To help meet this immense need, HCM sends out medical mission teams to hold mobile clinics in our outlying churches. Our visiting medical professionals see thousands of patients every year at these clinics.
