The Arise Haiti Center of Healing was founded in April 2009. It began after being in Haiti for a few months, when medical director Rachael Courter, M.S., P.A.C provided someone in need in the community some over the counter medication. That person asked if Rachael would be willing to help others in the community the next day. Being new to the culture and language, she responded, “sure.”
The next morning the Courter family awoke with hundreds of people from the community gathered in front of our house waiting for medical care. Only having the medications they brought for their family, and a stethoscope, Rachael and her husband James began seeing patients on the front porch of what now is the Arise Center of Healing, With a limited grasp of the language, the Arise Center of Healing was launched by faith.
Today the Arise Haiti Health Team has had provided care fo over 15,000 patient visits. The Healing Center provides a community medical clinic at the Arise Center offering general medical consultations, basic laboratory services, labor and delivery with diagnostic ultrasound, physical therapy and spiritual counseling. The Arise Medical team also establishes mobile medical sites in various locations in Southern Haiti. Plans to establish Healing Rooms and a Pregnancy Care Center by the fall of 2014.
