A number of changes have recently occurred at Popondetta General Hospital. A new CEO has been appointed. After nine years serving as an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist as well as CEO, Dr Gunzee Gawin has moved to Hela Province where he is CEO of all medical services. It is a challenging yet exciting adventure for him. Dr Gawin has been a huge supporter of the work of OCDP. His guidance and innovative ideas will be missed.
Dr Petrus Opum has accepted the role of CEO. Dr Opum is a surgeon who has worked at PGH for a number of years. Being known to the staff as well as the PGH environment is an advantage for him in this new role. OCDP wish both Dr Gawin and Dr Opum all the best in their new positions.
The eagerly awaited operating theatre was recently officially opened. This long anticipated addition will assist the hospital to provide treatment to patients in a more effective and timely manner.
