Back at the Hopital

I am back in Haiti at Hopital Adventiste d'Haiti.  There have been many changes here while I was gone.  Indeed as I had heard there is now water in the hospital's pipes 24/7.  Actually we have too much water right now and the cistern is overflowing, but that should be solved in the morning with the installation of a flow control valve.  We also have moved 25 patients back inside the building and our outdoor census is just a little over 200 patients.  While we only have 225 patients our daily population on the hospital compound soars to over 1000 with patient family members and our volunteer staff.   There is much more to tell but it is getting late and I am tired.  Here are a few pics...

Surgical transport picking up a patient from our indoor Pre-Op room

More indoor treatment rooms

Even an indoor Post-Op room now

We really need some shelving!

  1. Great to have you back, Andrew, and get your informative reports with the photos! Praise God that you have so many supplies, staff, and are finally back in the hospital. Keep up the reports. We read them out here! Wanda Puder
