About Us

Providing Medical Care to the Island of La Gonâve since 1948.

The La Gonâve Wesleyen Hospital was established in 1948 on the island of La Gonâve off the coast of Haiti by the Wesleyan Mission in Haiti. For more than seventy years the hospital has provided basic health services through resident medical staff and visiting teams of specialists.

The hospital has historically generated at least half of its operating budget in the local context, charging very modest fees for services to those who are able to pay them. Partner organizations, government programs, and the mission’s network of friends and supporting churches provide the balance of needed funds, especially for those in the population who are truly indigent. Today, the hospital’s primary support partner is the FBO, World Hope International.
