Inspired in 1947 by Swiss doctor, and theologian, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, successful rancher Larry Mellon and his wife Gwen Grant Mellon decided to found a hospital in Haiti, then, as now, the poorest country in the Western hemisphere.

The Road to Deschapelles is the story of an extraordinary couple who, in 1954, founded Hospital Albert Schweitzer in Deschapelles in central Haiti and where they and the hospital have cared for the most needy and the sick for more than 40 years.
