MT HAGEN General Hospital’s efforts to provide quality health care have been boosted with two more doctors to work at the hospital.
Anaesthetist Dr Jayanta Goswami and urologist Dr Timmy Tingnee are the new resident doctors who will provide much needed professional health care in Western Highlands and the region.
Goswami, who is from India, joined in August, and is assisted by scientific officer and officer in charge of the anaesthetic division, Masa Kameso, while Tingnee, from Mt Hagen, has been undertaking official duties since May.
Goswami is the only senior anesthetic officer in the region while others who trained under him are stationed at hospitals in Goroka, Mendi, Port Moresby, Lae and Rabaul.
Anaesthetists are specialists who make sure that patients are ready for operations, and according to Goswami, at least 20 patients were received, excluding those from the emergency unit.
Tingnee, who recently completed two years of intensive training in urology at Australia’s Lismore Base hospital, Tweed Heads hospital, and Box Hill Base hospital, returned to Mt Hagen to provide much needed health care.
He is a specialist in the human urinary system which includes the kidneys, urinary bladder and urethra (urine tube).
Tingnee’s main mission is to establish a urology department within the hospital to serve as the highlands regional centre.
These latest improvements mean that the hospital now has doctors who are specialists in various fields, unlike other hospitals.
Goswami added that hospitals should have doctors in all specialised fields in order for patients to receive adequate medical treatment, health care and advice.
He said the hospital currently needed a radiologist and gynaecologist to also step up the hospital’s level of service being provided.
