Vanessa is a Haitian-American Occupational Therapist from Virginia that volunteered with Project Medishare this past August. She worked with the physical therapy team at Hospital Bernard Mevs, who are always eager to learn new techniques, as well as show off their own. Vanessa told us the highlights of her trip included delicious Haitian food, bonding with hospital staff, and being able to use her Creole to get to know patients better. Thank you Vanessa for donating your time, skills and knowledge to the people of Haiti!

Earlier this year, we launched a neurosurgery fellowship program in partnership with Hospital Bernard Mevs, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami Children’s Hospital, the State University of Haiti and the Haitian Ministry of Health. The goal of the three year program is to build local capacity by improving access to neurosurgical care. Dr. Yudy Lafortune, born and raised in Port-au-Prince, was selected as the program’s first fellow. Head over to the news section of our website to read our Q&A with Dr. Lafortune and learn more about him.#toprankrepost

Meet Dr Rivette Monaly- the new Chief Medical Officer of Hospital Bernard Mevs. After 3 years as CMO I am proud to hand over the torch to a wonderful Haitian physician and dear friend. I have been immensely privileged to work amongst such an amazing team of Haitian staff and volunteers over the last 7 years in Haiti and our local staff have taught me so much about Medicine, Haitian culture and how to be a good human being in tough circumstances. Today I handed over the whiteboard pen with an equal mixture of happiness and sadness. #oneweekleft #happysad #mapsonjew #ayiticherie

We are thankful for this beautiful Gesture. As we advance in trying to be the best hospital in Port-Au-Prince, we would not be able to advance without the help of our community. From the unfortunate situations we have encountered at the hospital, to a simple smile on our patients' faces, we always strive to deliver with efficiency. Our mission is to save as many lives as possible on a daily basis. It is obvious to say that healthcare in Haiti is lacking, but saving lives is important enough to try to find solutions to our problems. This gesture will help us move forward in so many ways. We can't thank you enough.#hopitalbernardmevs #healthcare#MedicalNeedsInHaiti #savinglives #jointhemovement #grateful @lolfest@dreampromo@lakayit

Did you know? June 13th is "International Albinism Awareness Day". On June 14th and 15th, in an effort to commemorate this day, Hôpital Bernard Mevs was the proud host of the oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) clinic led by Dr. Brian Morrison, a dermatologist from the University of Miami Hospital.
Dr. Morrison and his team successfully saw a total of 65 albinism patients of which 13 received surgical intervention. We are thankful to them and to the Haitian team that led this clinic.
Special thanks to James Germain who led the advertising campaign, to the General Hospital and HBM doctors, especially to HBM's Dr. Jeanty and to the Wound Care administration who all came together and contributed their efforts to make this clinic possible!

Did you know? Hydrocephaly is not the only children's program that is dear to us here at Hospital Bernard Mevs. The Cleft Palate program is equally important to us. This week, with the help of our very own Miss Magguy, we were able to get the Smile Network, a famous and specialized team from Minesotta, to come and operate on 42 of our little patients with a cleft palate/lip. We are proud to be the only hospital in Haiti to participate in bringing a Smile to these children's faces. As you might expect, these programs are very costly to the hospital and Your Donations and Support are crucial for their continued success. #strongertogether #WeCare #hopitalbernardmevs #yourcontributionmatters #Haiti #betterhealthcare

On November 24th 2014, something spectacular and unprecedented occured marking Haitian medical history forever: Marian and Michelle Bernard , two siamoise sisters were successfully separated after hours of surgery at Haiti's Mirebalais Hospital. This was all possible thanks to Haitian American pediatrician surgeon Dr. Henri Ford and a team of surgeons such as the Bitar Brothers and other specialists from @hopitalbernardmevs @lachildrenshosptial @partnersinhealth @gheskio
We are remembering this day with pride as one of medecine's most riskiest surgeries was succesfully executed on Haitian soil by Haitian doctors.

This week, a group of highly skilled neurosurgeons joined us from Miami to perform life saving surgeries on some of our Hydrocephalus patients. The picture in the right shows a mother holding her smiling son who underwent a successful surgery and who is now fully functional. She was back here at the hospital to bring a sense of comfort and hope to the mothers of patients awaiting surgery. We are so grateful to her and to the hydrocephalus team! #hopitalbernardmevs #medicalcareinhaiti #medicalneeds #hydrocephalus #WeCare #strongertogether #developmenthaiti
Meet Miss Maguy, the coordinator for the hydrocephalus and plastic surgery programs here at Hospital Bernard Mevs. The little boy in her arms is Kelvi Anderson Cesar. When he was just 3 months old, little Kelvi was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. At the age of 7 months, thanks to the Hydrocephalus Program, which allows hydrocephalus kids such as Kelvi to receive free surgical care, he was able to undergo surgery and is now a healthy little boy. We are so thrilled to see him again! #hopitalbernardmevs #healthcare #healthcareforall #wecare #medicalneedsinhaiti
