2019 Matching Campaign | Double your giving!
Our ultimate vision is a self-sustaining Haitian hospital
approximating U.S. standards of care.
WHO WE ARE
January 1993 was the rudimentary beginnings of Mission Haiti Medical, as the first group of U.S. visitors representing our Indiana-based group joined together under God’s guidance in Haiti. Hosted by missionary Phyllis Newby, their goal was to help with medical challenges presented in Saintard, Haiti. As the ministry evolved over the years, the building of an indigenously sustainable clinic was begun by groups from North Carolina, Tennessee, Bermuda, Barbados, Jamaica, and many other locations around the globe. The vision presented by Ms. Phyllis Newby and local pastor, Jean Marie Louis Jean, came to fruition when the clinic opened in July 2005 with three Haitian staff members.
As the clinic has grown and changed to meet the needs of the community, the current staff of over 50 Haitian medical professionals see about 500 patients a week, adding to more than 175,000 patients who have passed through the doors since the clinic opened. The goal has always been to develop a facility to provide 24-hour healthcare, seven days a week for the village and surrounding communities. Our newest steps toward this goal was the opening of around-the-clock emergency services.
