Registered Nurse and Midwife

Tracey Damm

I’m an ANUM here at Corryong Health and have been working here for over 20 years. My role is very varied and rewarding. Working and living in a small community means we usually do something different every day.
I run a small Day Procedure Unit which we mostly perform Endoscopy with a visiting Surgeon from Albury Wodonga and a visiting Anesthetist from Mt Beauty.
We have a 2 chair Dialysis Unit with 2 permanent patients.
I also run an Antenatal Education program and do the Domiciliary Visits for Albury Wodonga Health when Mum and Babe first come home from hospital.
Rural Nursing is a very rewarding career with a huge variety of clients coming to the facility. Corryong Health is a very important part of the community.
