The Governments of Papua New Guinea and Australia are redeveloping ANGAU Memorial Hospital in Lae, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea. This major redevelopment project will deliver a high quality regional referral hospital that provides improved access to integrated health services for the people of the Momase and Highlands Regions.
ANGAU is the second largest hospital in Papua New Guinea and plays a critical role serving as a District Hospital for 149,000 people in Lae, a provincial hospital for the 675,000 people of Morobe, and a regional referral hospital for the 1.9 million residents of the Momase Region.
This project involves the progressive redevelopment of the existing health services infrastructure at ANGAU Hospital. The hospital is being built and equipped to international standards and designed to best serve the needs of patients. New and refurbished facilities will enable a quality integrated health service, with facilities and equipment that are consistent with Government of Papua New Guinea guidelines, standards and reformed models of care.
