New Hospital In Port Moresby!

Well not actually new but upgraded. The former Mola/Lam private Hospital is bigger and better. If you are in POM you will have seen the extension of the hospital opposite PMGH. There is now a major and minor operation theatre with a full time sureon. There are 17 rooms upstairs, all self contained with own shower and bathroom. This post sounds like an advertisement…LOL!!

Just toksave tasol.

  1. I am sure that doctors, nurses and medical technicians are scarce resources in PNG. I am trying hard to improve this. I am the co-author of new textbooks for Grade 9 and grade 10 science in all PNG schools. I desperately need stories from Papua New Guinean doctors, nurses and technicians describing what they do, why they believe it is worth while and what motivated them to become health professionals. We need these very short (500 words or so) stories in order to provide good role models for our current PNG school students and to encourage them to train as doctors, nurses or technicians. If you agreed to do this then all grade 9 and 10 school students would be reading your story for the next 10 years or so. And in that period many students will decide to train as medical professional, most probably influenced in part by your story.

    If you want to tell your inspiring story then contact me directly at
    Thank you
