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.
