The Nonga General Hospital (formerly known as Nonga Base Hospital), was established before 1975. The Hospital is the largest public hospital in East New Britain Province and is located in Rabaul, which was the former provincial capital of East New Britain. It has several departments including: Out Patient, Accident & Emergency, X-Ray, Consultation Clinic, Dispensary, and Laboratory. The Hospital is currently undergoing major renovations as part of Government’s Hospital Rehabilitation Scheme. “Nonga General Hospital is located in a friendly and safe environment. There are several other institutions (churches, schools) near the hospital and excellent access to public transport to get into Rabaul town (about a 5-minute drive). The hospital is located on the seaside and the sea is clean and pleasant to swim in. The local people are friendly and generally respectful”.[1]
