Louisdon Pierre


Louisdon Pierre is a pediatric intensive care specialist with more than 15 years of experience. He has successfully developed a state of the art pediatric intensive care unit and services in a largely underserved area of north Brooklyn, New York. Those years were also abundant with pediatric missions to Haiti, Nepal and Kenya. He was among the first medical responders to the earthquake disaster in Haiti in January 2010.  Upon his return his reflections on the health care challenges facing Haiti, an already struggling nation prior to the untimely disaster, were widely quoted in mainstream media including a New York Times editorial " Doctors Haunted by Patient's They Couldn't Help" and became the driving force behind the establishment of a pediatric/neonatal intensive care unit at the Adventist Hospital in Port-au-Prince in 2010.As a founding member, and President of PULSE, Louisdon Pierre cherishes a personal ambition to see that other developing countries with limited resources benefit from sustainable pediatric intensive care services to aid critically ill children.

Louisdon received his medical degree from Universidad de Montemorelos, in NL Mexico, a medical college with a strong tradition of medical missionary service. He completed General Pediatrics training at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, New York and a fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at Long-Island Jewish Hospital, Cohen Children’s Medical Center. He is board certified in General Pediatrics and Pediatric Critical Care and received an MBA in Healthcare from George Washington University. He currently holds active membership in the Society of Critical Care Medicine, Consultant on their PFCCS Commitee, and maintains PFCCS Directorship. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Member of the New York Society of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, The Global Health Council and The American Telemedicine Association. 


Louisdon serves as the Project Manager for PULSE's activities in Haiti and Nepal. Having witnessed enormous inequalities that play a role in the death of a newborn in low-income countries, that merely need a warm blanket, and sometimes assisted artifical breaths in the hands of a receiver to stimulate an infant's first breaths, while in another world away an infant survives with the help of highly sophisticated machines. With these basic but life-saving concepts in mind PULSE was created, and aims to bridge the disparity in access to health care, particularly acute and intensive care with the recognition that a significant amount of childhood mortality is preventable. "On any given day, thousands of children who are the most vulnerable in society die because they lack access to simple things like clean water, hygiene and medical care, while abundant life-saving resources are an ocean away. The ravages of earthquakes, floods and hurricanes are mere reminders that we have not yet succeeded to provide for and preserve our humankind." Through continuous medical education and adaptation of assistive technology PULSE works to provide cost efficient methods that remove the barriers to health care delivery.
