After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, MSF launched its largest-ever emergency intervention, hiring thousands of new staff, treating more than 350,000 patients in the 10 months that followed, then treating hundreds of thousands more during a massive cholera outbreak. MSF had been in Haiti for almost two decades prior to the earthquake, though, and still has extensive operations in the country, including, in Port-au-Prince, a trauma surgery and burn center in the Drouillard neighborhood, the 107-bed Nap Kembe surgical and orthopedic hospital in Tabarre, a stabilization center in Martissant, and a 143- bed emergency obstetrics program in Delmas 33. MSF also runs a 160-bed, full-service hospital in Leogane, to the east.
