Pics from Hopital Adventiste d’Haiti

Mid-morning 1/20/2010

The 6.1 aftershock this morning was very strong even for a California boy like me. A general assessment of the structure for any new damage seems to be very encouraging with only a few minor cracks. We then struggled with the generator power system for an hour or two trying to get it operational so that we could start operating. The "engineering" team assures us that one generator will continue to function without issue but the other generator is offline as we wait for parts and support.

There are more than 300 patients (and their families) waiting outside for surgery.

Drs. Tom Moyad, Lijun Wan, and Brad Walter externally fixate a fractured hip.


  1. Glad to hear all are safe at the hospital and able to continue some work. Praying for you all.

  2. My husband ( a graduate of LLU Dental School) and I founded a medical/dental relief non-profit called New Reality International. We currently several teams of surgeons and nurses who are ready for immediate deployment to Haiti to help for a period of 7-14 days at a time. How can we team up with the Adventist Hospital in Haiti? We would like to be able to send some medical teams to assist at the hospital.

  3. Hey Andrew
    I don't have many words of wisdom, just prayers, don't have lots of equipment to send, just prayers, don't have any answers to questions you may have, just prayers..but God says his grace is sufficient for all..and He knows what we need and how much before we ask..guess we don't need any more than that assurance!!
    Love to you and the rest of the team..
