Our goal is to provide top quality care and make it accessible to all classes of people in Haiti. With only 6% of the population having insurance coverage, and 80% of the population without formal employment, this is a big challenge. It is important to pay our employees fairly, keep our generators running, and maintain adequate supply of oxygen and other key materials. We have a philosophy of charging fair prices for our services. Knowing that many will not be able to afford even the least expensive surgical procedures, we have established a financial counseling office to give exonerations and provide subsidies, when appropriate. Patients are not turned away for lack of financial resources. We need your help to make this happen. Each and every dollar donated goes 100% towards HAH and the patients we serve.
There are several ways to donate:
- Capital expense projects enable the hospital to function more efficiently. These include projects like the upgrades to our imaging department including a CT scanner and a digital x-ray. The laboratory, private ward, operating room, emergency room and business office have also undergone much needed renovations using capital expense funds. This has helped our hospital minimize overhead and more effectively generate revenue, with the end goal of providing more top quality care to more people. We have created a master plan for the hospital compound. Upcoming projects include an outpatient clinic, community hospital wards that will nearly double our 50 bed capacity, and expansion of our volunteer housing facility. Contact us for more details on how to donate.
- The Scott and Marni Nelson fund through Amistad International is a fund focused on specific capital expense projects as well as maintaining surgical supplies and equipment. You can donate by check, credit card or Paypal and designate ‘Scott and Marni Nelson Fund’. Keep in mind that sending a check can avoid the credit card and Paypal fees that subtract about 3% of your donation.
- If you would like to directly support patient care then consider donating to our indigent patient endowment fund. Contact us for more details. The revenue generated by this fund is used to subsidize the many patients who cannot afford their care. Donors who give over $50 are entitled to a copy of the book Haiti: Together We Move which is a story that begins just two days after the earthquake with amazing pictures and accounts of the immediate responders to Port-au-Prince. Heroic stories and accounts of life saving operations are woven with vivid, moving photographs taken by numerous professional photographers. With each turn of the page you will travel and experience the events that transformed Haiti Adventist Hospital from a rescue orthopedic center to what is now one of the main referral centers in Haiti and a leader in providing orthopedic care for the indigent.
