Whitney Clinic

The importance of the Whitney Clinic cannot be overstated.

  • Hope for Haiti

In 2003, we opened our permanent clinic at Sacre Coeur Parish, the Whitney Clinic, named after Jim Whitney, the orthodontist whose generous donation allowed us to fund its construction.

The clinic is manned by an excellent Haitian doctor, Hudson Pierre, MD, a nurse, and other staff. Dr. Pierre sees hundreds of patients each week and provides excellent follow-up care after our medical teams have returned home and also treats many new patients. The maladies he treats include malnutrition, parasite infections, malaria, high blood pressure and diabetes. In addition, Midwives for Haiti, an excellent organization based in Virginia, provides all-important prenatal care in a country where the vast majority of births are unattended.

The recent addition of a dental suite within the clinic now means that our visiting dentists and hygienists can provide great care in a more comfortable, sanitary environment.

The importance of the Whitney Clinic for the people of Hinche cannot be overstated. The only public hospital in the area is very poorly equipped and also unaffordable for many local residents.

Thanks to the generosity of those supporting our Twinning and Doc-a-Day programs, people from all over Haiti's Central Plateau know that they can received excellent medical care at no charge at the Whitney Clinic.
