PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – A U.S. humanitarian group and Haitian health officials have announced plans for a $15 million teaching hospital north of the earthquake-battered capital.

The Boston-based organization Partners in Health says the 320-bed facility to be built in the town of Mirebalais is intended to take pressure off the overburdened and underfinanced general hospital in Port-au-Prince. Few Haitians now have regular access to health care.

Partners in Health said Friday that the teaching hospital will serve an estimated 450 to 550 patients a day. It will include six operating rooms, have digital X-ray and be powered in part by solar panels.
