Popondetta Hospital

District General Hospital | Popondetta, Papua New Guinea

Hospital description

The Popondetta Hospital, in the Oro province of Papua New Guinea, is classified as a category 4 public hospital and has been described by previous international visitors as effectively managed, although though the style of the hospital is often described as Melanesian rather than Western. Many of the wards at the hospital are only partially occupied, though some of the patients at the hospital do suffer from very serious conditions. The Outpatients wards are well used by the local people.

As with many remote hospitals in Papua New Guinea, Popondetta is undersupplied and has limited surgical instruments and operating capacity.
