New hospital opens in isolated area of southern Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti –  A new hospital has been opened in a remote section of southern Haiti where residents once had to travel for hours on rutted roads to reach a relatively well equipped medical center.

In a Monday statement, the CMMB-Health Lives Worldwide nonprofit group says the health center in the isolated coastal community of Cotes-de-Fer will serve more than 50,000 people who previously did not have access to decent care.

A U.S. organization in Kentucky and Ohio called Mercy Health provided $2 million for construction costs.

Haiti's health ministry will provide technical and support staff. Local community members donated the land for the facility.

Dr. Dianne Jean Francois is CMMB's country director in Haiti. She says the hospital will "strengthen the local health system in a long-term and sustainable way."
