The Medical Services Team would like to announce that our team is now complete, as Jan Weber recently joined us as the Regional Medical Coordinator for our homes in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Jan volunteered in Haiti in 2000 as a nurse working initially in the children's hospital for seven months, and later took on the task of running the clinic and helping to organize outstanding operations. He also worked alongside Fr. Rick Frechette and the Sisters of Charity visiting hospices and wound-care clinics on a regular basis.
Since his volunteer days, he has gotten his Masters degree in Public Health. We are all excited to have him as part of our team. Welcome Jan!
The Medical Services department of NPHI is a team of international healthcare professionals, who by working directly with the National Directors and local Health Coordinators, support the healthcare staff in assuring the children’s right of access to quality healthcare is met.
Our mission is to provide support to the local healthcare staff, while collaborating with interdisciplinary teams within the homes, to provide quality physical and mental holistic care for our children.
Members of the Medical Services team travel periodically to the homes, where they work side-by-side with the local staff, problem solving, improving and maintaining a quality health care system.
The Medical Services team organizes an annual International Medical Workshop, which is a key element in providing continuing education to the local healthcare staff, and allows us to share knowledge and experiences from our nine homes.
