OSM node placed in close proximity to the Sahana Foundation position (gpx file). Node includes FIXME=location in town guessed, and there is in aerial imagery no compelling support for current location.

Internet search showed reference to this facility in the work "PMTCT Baseline Assessment and Planning Template" (PMTCT = Preventing Maternal to Child Transmission [of HIV]), in a table of MCH facilities (MCH = Mother and Child Healthcare). This appears to be a US Government produced document. A copy of the relevant table item follows (see pg 20 of the document linked above):

LISTE DES INSTITUTIONS PRATIQUANT L’ACCOUCHEMENT
# NOM DES INSTITUTIONS LOCALISATION TYPE
DEPARTEMENT DU NORD
6 Centre de santé du Borgne Ville du Borgne Public

This at least provides corroboration for the location in Borgne. Further, the listing allows addition of the descriptor "public MCH services facility" to the hospital.
