Marines build 400-patient medical facility in Port Au Prince

PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti — Marines and Sailors with Combat Logistics Battalion 24 arrived at an empty soccer field here Jan. 31 with a mission – transform this recreation area into an interim medical after-care facility capable of treating up to 250 patients.

Within 48 hours the Marines and their Navy counterparts completed setting up a small tent city of large, green military tents neatly aligned across a field owned by car dealership owner Daniel Wozier. By Saturday there were 43 tents, capable of holding 400 patients and far exceeding the initial requirement, erected and the first three patients arrived from USNS Comfort.

ABOARD USNS COMFORT (T-AH 20), At Anchor – Jeanne Bernard Pierre, director of the Institute of Social Welfare in Haiti, visited the Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) Feb. 8 to evaluate the needs of displaced Haitian children on board. Pierre brought a team of representatives from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and social workers to help victims of the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake find loved ones, or in cases where entire families were lost, a new home.

“The first goal of the visit is to say thank you to the U.S. government who provided health care for Haitian children,” Pierre said.  “We are here to protect the children and to find out if they have parents so they can track down families, and if their parents are gone, find other options like foster families.”

Comfort is working closely with members of UNICEF, Red Cross and the Haitian Institute of Social Welfare to ensure that the children do not get lost in the aftermath of this tragedy.

“There have been success stories through both the Red Cross and UNICEF finding patients’ families,” said Lt. Andrea Hernandez, a pediatric nurse aboard Comfort.  “We are making arrangements with transfer facilities to reunite patients with their families once they have been identified.”

Patient discharge coordinator Capt. Colleen Gallagher met with Pierre during her visit to facilitate interviews with children aboard the hospital ship who are still unidentified.

“I think that if the Comfort wasn’t here those children probably would have died,” Pierre said.  “After a disaster like this, the United States has come and helped, but the Haitian government needs others to help as well to rebuild Haiti and create sustainability.”


Capt. Kelly Pajak, along with Haitian workers, helps with the construction of the deployable Joint Command and Control Center, the headquarters for Joint Task Force-Haiti. The Army South team worked together with both governmental and non-governmental organizations, such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USAID and Haitian workers, to complete the command center.


The only Army Reserve aviation brigade, the 244th Aviation Brigade, has geared up to deploy troops and equipment to Haiti in support of Operation Unified Response. More than 300 Soldiers from 244th Aviation Brigade will deploy today to support humanitarian operations in Haiti. Along with Soldiers, the 244th is sending nine CH-47 Chinook helicopters and four UH-60 Black Hawks.
