With a focus on disease prevention, early detection and intervention, and health promotion, the Christianville medical clinic offers health care to over 1800 students, their siblings, and Christianville staff. Throughout the 2018-19 school year, Christianville extended its medical service to include monthly mobile medical visits to the community schools of TiBoukan, TiCousin, and Jean Jean. This is made possible solely through the support of donors. Through this effort, countless children received essential primary care and treatment in addition to those already receiving care in the main Lasalle clinic. The medical program also incorporates health education both in practice and in the schools.
Christian Vision Eye Services to Haiti (CVESH) provides primary eye care services through its clinic located on the Christianville Campus. Current Services include eye exams, diagnosis and treatment of basic eye disease, and co-management of systemic disease which include the eye with Haiti Health Ministries and eyeglasses are offered through a Haitian Optical Company.

The Christianville Dental Clinic was founded in the 1970s as a single-room and has now grown to a multi-room modern facility. A female Haitian dentist, Dr. Andre, currently runs the clinic. The clinic provides free services to the students of Christianville Schools, their families, and local residents who cannot afford to pay for services. All other patients pay a small fee for their dental services. Our staff believes one of the best ways to treat dental problems is through prevention. We have a strong emphasis on teaching basic dental care and providing the necessary supplies to help children maintain proper dental hygiene.
