Why We Bring Haitians to the States for Heart Surgery

This is the Internal Medicine Department at St. Catherine Laboure Hospital in Cite Soleil. Doctors Without Borders quit staffing the hospital in December, 2011. MSPP (Ministry of Public Health) in Haiti is now in charge.

Including this dying lady, there are four adult patients in the tiny internal medicine unit. St. Catherine's is the only hospital for hundreds of thousands of people in Soleil.
