"While he was still speaking to the crowds, his mother and his brothers appeared outside, wishing to speak with him. Someone told him,"Your mother and brothers are standing outside, asking to speak with you." But he said in reply to the one who told him, "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 11:46-50


Visitation Hospital Foundation, was established to provide quality and compassionate healthcare for the people of southwest Haiti to empower them with resources to pursue their basic right to health and health education.



Plans for the addition of an Ambulatory Surgery Center adjacent to current Visitation Clinic are underway! 

Alan Dooley, Principal Architect of Dooley Associates and VHF Board Member, is generously serving as our lead architect on this project which will be life-changing for the people of Petite Riviere de Nippes and the surrounding region.

“ I was impressed with the quality of medical care provided to the patients, the diversity of laboratory tests, and the wide variety of medications available at the pharmacy. Just a few years ago we saw quite a bit of caloric and protein malnutrition in the children. During this current week, I saw no protein malnutrition! I am sure that this reflects the addition of clean water, repetitive deworming missions, the daily availability of health care through the clinic, and the education program...This was truly amazing and inspirational for me to see."
