Interview with Dr. Peterson Gédé, medical director of Les Cayes General Hospital
Dr. Peterson Gédé, medical director of Les Cayes General Hospital, said a group of mental health professionals will come to the hospital next week to provide psychological care, two days per week, for the patients, their families and the hospital’s staff. Everyone is having a hard time, he said, as they face injuries and material losses.

Gédé also said the orthopedic supplies the hospital has received is inadequate considering the high volume of injured patients needing treatment. The hospital really needs more support because all the major cases will come there.

He also called for help from those not directly affected by the earthquake and the international community. 

The south needs all the help it can get, Gédé said.
