Hospital Bienfaisance of Pignon
Hospital Bienfaisance is a modern 65 bed hospital that serves the 145,000 people in the north and central plateau of Haiti. The hospital has two state of the art operating rooms, a full lab facility, endoscopy, mamogram and x-ray capabilities, a complete pharmacy and a feeding program for patients. The hospital seeks to provide on-going training for doctors, nurses and specialty personnel while serving the poor and underserved in the region. Hospital Bienfaisance exists to serve those in need as well as provide modern facilities for those who can pay a portion or pay in full.
Over the last 25 years, Hospital Bienfaisance has moved from 7% of patients contributing to payment of medical expenses to over 40% of patients paying part or all of their healthcare expenses! That is a phenomenal accomplishement in the midst of extreme poverty and few resources.
This hospital and mission is made possible by the generouse support of people and partners across the United States. Join us and serve the poorest of the poor, keep babies alive, treat epidemic diseases like cholera and HIV/AIDS, and bring hope in a sometimes hopeless culture. Donate now and help build a healthy and hope-filled future for the people of Pignon! View the work of Promise for Haiti and Hospital Bienfaisance in this video.
Dr. Guy and team have reiterated that this is the “Lord’s Hospital” and all are ready and willing to serve the poor and underserved in Haiti. Dr. Batsch, the hospital's Medical Director uses this quote “To Serve, you only need a Heart full of Grace, and a Soul generated by Love.” (M. L. King Jr)
And from Dr. Guy: “Many groups have contributed to the making of our Hospital. Pignon is the Lord’s place and belongs to all mission groups working with us. The Lord is our Master.” Dr Guy
