Six months after Hurricane Matthew devastated the commune of Port-a-Piment , the local hospital is still very active with patients coming from the Southwest coast of Haiti (Tiburon, Les Anglais, Chardonnières, Roche-a-Bateau, Coteaux etc..).
With the support of the Medecins Sans Frontières (MSF) organization, the hospital is now recognized for providing very good services. Everyone in town has something positive to say about the hospital and its staff. 75 patients are scheduled for treatment daily and 120 people are now employed at this facility according to Mr Pierre Van Heddegem, MSF Project Coordinator.
