RegionalCare to Build Hospital in Haiti

Brentwood, Tenn.-based RegionalCare Hospital Partners has partnered with Nashville, Tenn.-based nonprofit LiveBeyond to open a hospital in Thomazeau, Haiti.

RegionalCare is set to break ground on the new facility after Jan. 1, according to a news release. The for-profit company has already sponsored four employee volunteer group trips to the region and plans to send 10 more groups in 2014.

The company connected with LiveBeyond — which brings medical services to disaster areas and developing countries — after beginning a search for a volunteer program about 18 months ago, according to the release. While the new hospital is under construction, RegionalCare employee volunteer groups will work at makeshift clinics in the area, focusing on maternity care, wound care and dental care.
