Kununurra Medical opens its doors

11 December 2013

Kununurra Medical opened its doors on October 1st 2013 at the new Ochre Centre of the Kununurra District Hospital. Operating a private medical practice is a new venture for Wunan. It represents a long held ambition to engage in community health, as an essential component of our strategy and compliment to other programs housing, education and employment; thus providing a holistic view of community well-being.

It’s a steep learning curve and we are pleased that Dr Abby Harwood, from whom we acquired the practice, has chosen to stay with us as the founding GP, and bring with her an expertise in remote health services and an established patient base. This has ensured continuity of operation, from which we seek to grow to a minimum of 3 GP’s with supporting nursing staff in the next two years.  Wunan expects the practice to be profitable, and so allowing further investment in pursuing broader social outcomes.
