A Life Saved, With Lasting Impact for St. Joseph Clinic

One story of service has had a lasting impact on St. Joseph Clinic.

Junior graduation with Nurse Sherry

In January 2008, a young man was brought to the Clinic just as a surgical team from the U.S. arrived. He had been paralyzed several years earlier, was confined to a wheelchair, and was brought in experiencing a fever and body aches. One of the visiting U.S. surgeons, Dr. Dave Snyder, and his nurse, Sherry Pace, examined the young man and determined that he was septic. Only immediate surgery would save his life. The U.S. team was able to perform exactly the surgery that he needed and saved his life.

That young man would regularly return to the Clinic to visit with the Medical Team when they were there. He also went on to graduate top in his class from the university in Hinche, majoring in business and accounting.

A few years later, Junior St. Fleur Charles would become the Manager of St. Joseph Clinic.
