We recently attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Sho-Ping Chin Clinic for Healthcare and Education in Titanyen, Haiti. Named after the late Payette Principal and Sustainable Healthcare in Haiti co-founder, Sho-Ping Chin was a talented and compassionate architect who was fiercely determined to design healthcare architecture of the highest caliber for those in need.
The Sho-Ping Chin Clinic for Healthcare and Education is a medical clinic and education center that will provide classes, computers for the children to access medical information, their medical profiles and class information.
Sustainable Healthcare for Haiti was founded nine years ago, and has provided healthcare for children including primary care, OBGYN, dental, optometry, nutrition and sports medicine programs. This includes a new maternity ward that Payette and Sustainable Healthcare for Haiti collaborated on following the devastation wrought by Haiti’s 2010 earthquake.
During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Sustainable Healthcare for Haiti president Miriam Tuchman shared some heart felt words about the effect Sho-Ping Chin had the design of this project.
