Rural Haiti’s first teaching hospital stands as a powerful sign of hope in a country which is still recovering from the devastation of the 2010 earthquake.
This 205,000 SF, 300-bed facility accommodates state-of-the-art clinical facilities including a digital radiography suite, four operating rooms, a neonatal intensive care unit and an emergency ward. The building systems include a large 500kW photo-voltaic (PV) array which produces enough electricity to power the entire hospital.
“The new Haitian National Teaching Hospital built in Mirebalais, Haiti over three years starting in 2010 was without question the most difficult and challenging project I have been involved with in my career which spans over thirty years including many large challenging projects across the United States. Jason D’Antona and TCI did an outstanding job on the electrical engineering which was the most complex and challenging aspect of the project. Jason brought outstanding problem solving skills to every aspect of the design and commissioning of the hospital. Without his dedication and depth of knowledge, the hospital may never have opened.”
