Just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, the last concrete block at the main complex of Mirebalais National Teaching Hospital was put into place.

When it opens its doors in Autumn 2012, the 180,000-square foot, 320-bed hospital will offer a level of care never before available at a public facility in Haiti. 

As can be seen in the pictures below, the hospital incorporates a great deal of green technology. The facility will use 400kW of high efficiency photovoltaic roof-mounted solar collectors to supply electrical power.

The massive solar array will be one of, if not the, largest in Haiti, and may even allow the hospital to return extra capacity back to the power grid.
