Medical & Dental Clinic

Comprised of 41 small villages with an estimated population of 20,000, Bois de Lance had only one small clinic with two auxiliary nurses with the training  level that was comparable to that of a nurse’s aid. There were no private medical doctors practicing in the area. Many deaths from common diseases would have been prevented with proper diagnosis and treatment.

In November 2008, the dream of opening a professionally staffed clinic for the Bois De Lance community became a reality. With the help of the Hope Foundation, Florida Hospital, the Cap Haitien Health Network and Hands Up For Haiti, resources have been provided for Open Door Clinic’s ongoing efforts. Dr. Avrius Compere, a Haitian Government Surgeon, directs the clinic and its professionally trained nurses, lab technicians and pharmacist.

20121105_111904The clinic currently treats over 1,100 patients a month, with its services including consultation rooms, a small surgery suite, labor and delivery room, a laboratory, a pharmacy and a nutrition/hygiene center. Additional staff, including a General Practitioner and more nurses have been added. In 2014, a Dental Suite was opened on the second floor of the clinic with Dental teams visiting from the U.S. a couple times a year. In 2017, with the help of Beautiful Feet International, a Pregnancy Center was opened on the seconded floor of the clinic and with the donation of an ultra sound machine in 2018, Haitian women are seeing their infants inside the womb for the very first time. We are thankful to have both Medical and Dental teams regularly visiting Open Door Clinic to bring specialized care to the people of Bois de Lance.
