Partners in Health’s 200,000-square-foot hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti is set to officially open its doors on April 28th, boasting state of the art facilities and incredible sustainable design features. With an anticipated 500 patients per day, Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais (HUM) will provide primary care services to over 185,000 people living in Mirebalais and its two neighboring communities. 80% of the country’s medical infrastructure was destroyed in the 2012 earthquake, so the hospital offers an opportunity to increase the standard of healthcare for thousands of Haitians while employing over 1,000 Haitian workers. Its primary care services include community health services, HIV/AIDS and TB care, care for noncommunicable diseases and prenatal care. HUM will also offer secondary and tertiary care to patients from Central Haiti and Port au Prince.
