A St. Rita’s Medical Center nurse is back after volunteering in Haiti.

Loretta Burgei and seven other Mercy Health volunteers helped open the Bishop Joseph M. Sullivan Center for Health.

In 2013 Mercy Health committed a two million dollar challenge grant to build the facility, which provides primary, emergency and specialty healthcare services to more than 50 thousand residents.

This is the sixth time Burgei has traveled to Haiti to help people there.

Prior to the construction of the facility, the nearest hospital was 90 miles and a three hour journey away.
