A la carte healthcare services

Generally

It is usual in Haiti for healthcare services to be offered a la carte.

1. If a person finds themselves in need of healthcare, they typically go first to the doctor's office, the first expense.

2. The Dr. may order tests. If so, the person (now a patient) must go to another facility for these tests, be they laboratory or radiologic, the second expense.

3. The patient must take the report from these tests back to the doctor for evaluation, the third expense.

4. The doctor may order prescription medicine which the patient must procure at a pharmacy, the fourth expense.

This process is obviously not only costly but cumbersome, often taking several days to maneuver.

This process is the same for a hospitalized patient. The family of the hospitalized patient must purchase all needed medicines at an outside pharmacy and return them to the hospital for administration.

At Hospital Evangelique

We have the resources to provide inclusive healthcare delivery as in: medical office visits, lab tests, medicine, radiology, perinatal and maternal care, family planning, counselling, nutritional support, home visits, and hospitalization.
