Mirebalais, Haiti's Ultimate City, Example of Country's Potential

Mirebalais, capital city of Mirebalais Arrondissement, is part of the Central Plateau on the island of Haiti. Saut d'Eau, Boucan-Carrè, and Mirebalais comprise the Arrondisement. Mirebalais is easily accessible by recently-constructed National Highway 3, only 25 miles and less than an hour's drive from Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince.


Mirebalais is a model city, an example of what can be achieved elsewhere in struggling Haiti. It is an environment of uninterrupted streams of projects that has made possible more potential jobs available than ever before. In a deviation from many of Haiti's cities, it is on the power grid 24-hours a day, by its favorable location to it.

In a first for Haiti, Mirebalais is nearly done building a thoroughly-modern teaching hospital. Mirebalais Teaching Hospital (MTH) will be a 320-bed, six-operating room, one-intensive care unit full-service medical facility. Standing seven stories high on a large tract of land, it will contain nursing and medical schools with internship and residency training as well. The employment potential for Mirebalais citizens is enormous. Two global non-government organizations, Partners in Health and Zanmi Lasante, have partnered with the Ministry of Public Health to fund the project.

Another shovel-ready project, a luxury-housing development, will be built by Oasis Global Enterprises. They will erect lavish homes and condominiums with amenities such as public spaces, nightclubs, retail stores, a business district, and hospitality venues.

Mirebelais's patron saint, St. Louis Roi de France, has a feast day celebrated annually on August 25th.
