Maintaining and operating a hospital would require the aid of high amounts of energy. And with the way that energy has become a bane, limited and growing as far as cost is concerned, hearing about a hospital that would run on solar power should be a big sigh of relief.
A solar powered hospital is set to open over in Mirebalais, Haiti. The said hospital is a 200,000 sq. ft. structure from Partners in Health (PIH) and boasts of state of the art facilities as well as sustainable design features.
Once up, the hospital expects to service around 500 patients daily. Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais (HUM) will provide primary care services for about 185,000 people residing in the area.
Among the primary care services include community health services, HIV/AIDS and TB care, care for noncommunicable diseases and prenatal care. HUM will also offer secondary and tertiary care to patients from Central Haiti and Port au Prince.
