Review for Project Medishare for Haiti Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

A very poor Haitian young man needs a third surgery on his leg that was broken one year ago in a motorcycle accident. I dropped him off at medishare hospital in Port Au Prince Tuesday, March 27th. I do not have the money to pay for the 2500G per day hospital bed and as yet undetermined fees beyond the 40,000G requested up front for the operation to repair a "pseudoarthrosis of tibia and femur".
The wife was told last Thursday that the cost for a hospital bed was 1000G. Today, Monday-three days later, she was told the bed will cost 1500G. Today they were told the cost for the hospital bed is 2500G per day. Then after paying the 40,000G they were told-no available beds now so come back tomorrow. Maybe the surgery will happen tomorrow maybe not but the hospital has the 40000G they demanded. I am saddened that the poorest of the poor in Haiti cannot receive care in a place like medishare (which receives incredible dollars in aide).....pathetic

Dear Vmeade58: We are very sorry to hear of your friend’s experience at Hospital Bernard Mevs. Project Medishare for Haiti partners with Hospital Bernard Mevs in Port-au-Prince to provide medical volunteers, training, medication and other assistance. Hospital Bernard Mevs is a privately-owned hospital that is independently operated from Project Medishare. In the Central Plateau, where Project Medishare has worked for nearly 25 years, we operate two health clinics and implement several programs that provide thousands of poor, vulnerable Haitians with access to lifesaving healthcare at no cost to them. We are able to do this thanks to the generous support of donors. We appreciate your feedback and will share it with the leadership at Hospital Bernard Mevs. Please reach out to us at info@projectmedishare.org and we will see if there is anything we can do to help.
