HEI/SBH is a trusted, Haitian-led health network that has been shaping and strengthening healthcare in partnership with the people we serve for forty years. We are the largest healthcare provider for over 2 million people in southern Haiti and serve as a model health system for the entire country.
Our dozens of services are designed to meet and evolve with our patients’ needs. Here at HEI/SBH, medical professionals at every level of their careers come to train and expand their skills. And through our community health program and satellite clinic, we are ensuring people living in even the most remote places can access the quality care they need.
Our doors are always open, and no one is ever turned away because they cannot pay. Providing care is our only priority—for every patient, every day.
