Our Foundations

Hôpital Sacré Coeur is the largest private hospital in the North of Haiti. Located in the town of Milot Haiti. This 125 bed hospital has provided uninterrupted service for almost 30 years.

This premier Haitian healthcare facility has been a beacon of hope for the people of Northern Haiti as it creates a healthier Haiti, one dignified life at a time.

Rooted in the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, the mission of Hôpital Sacré Coeur is to be both a Catholic hospital and medical center, consistent with the ideals of the Order of Malta, providing quality healthcare to the sick and the poor in the Haitian community, and an educational center for all who serve healthcare in Haiti.

At CRUDEM and Hôpital Sacré Coeur, we answer to a higher calling with a vision for a better world. We exemplify our Christian heritage of service and compassion by:

  • Providing accessible quality health care,
  • Embracing all people in need regardless of their religion, economic status or medical condition,
  • Responding with faith, integrity, respect excellence,
  • Meeting others with an open heart and open mind, calling forth the self-empowerment of the people and communities we serve, and
  • Upholding, at all times, and in all endeavors, the inherent dignity of every individual.

Joan Copeland Bailey Foundation

The Joan Copeland Foundation, a humanitarian foundation designed to provide better healthcare for the sick and impoverished. The Joan Copeland Foundation beginnings stem from a single medical missions trip to Haiti. During that time the ideals of the Order of Malta, which are to provide healthcare to the underserved, to embrace all people regardless of their religion, and embrace people of every economic status, were to be the pillars of the foundations mission. This non for profit foundation provides service to those in need around the entire world with not only medical care but also with capital necessary for infrastructure development in poverty stricken regions of the world, disaster relief,  or in the event of healthcare crises.
