Major changes have been underway at Popondetta General Hospital. The construction of a new operating theatre is near completion. Built to NSW standards, the building will provide the community with a brand new, fully functional facility.
Previously, the operating theatre at PGH has been forced to deal with situations including fire hazards, which temporarily resulted in its closure.
Dr Petrus Opum is a general surgeon permanently based at the hospital. With his fellow staff, Dr Opum will soon be able to operate in superior facilities that allow for more patients to receive a higher quality of care.
