Passé Reine Part of Haiti's Biggest Department, Artibonite
Passé Reine is surrounded by 20 lesser metro, suburb, and rural areas that lie within a three-mile radius. Larger metro areas lie further out from 68 to over 1,000 miles, and there are dozens of them. The town has access to a major medical facility, the Albert Schweitzer Hospital of Haiti in Deschapelles.
Passé Reine, being in the Artibonite Department, has suffered civil unrest, most recently in February 2004. The Department wanted to break apart from the rest of the country, but failed in the attempt. As a result, Passé Reine suffered an economic decline, but rebounded after President Rene Garcia Preval took office.
Five arrondissements make up the Artibonite Department: Dessalines, Gonaives, Gros-Morne, Marmalade, and Saint-Marc. Each of them contains anywhere from two to four communes, of which Passé Reine is one.
