Cooma has a modern well equipped hospital. It has a 30 bed ward that covers pediatrics and medical and surgical patients. We also have an 8 bed Maternity unit. We have a 24 hour A+E department run by GP/VMOs and covered 2 nights a week by CMOs from out of town which reduces our nights on call.
There are a number of visiting surgeons who provide orthopedic, general surgical and gynecology services and two visiting gastroenterologists who provide gastroscopy and colonoscopy services.
We are well equipped. Really well equipped. We have a spiral CT scanner in the hospital that can be accessed 24 hours via a teleradiology link for fast reports. We have in hours ultrasounds and 24 hour X-rays. Even the A+E department has an USS machine for use by the A+E doctors.
We have a hospital pathology lab in hours and on call after hours for most pathology needs.
Its great working in a well resourced hospital, that avoids bed block and allows you to get on with the medicine rather than wither under the crushing bureaucracy of hospital management.
