Echuca Moama Family Medical Practice has been supporting the Echuca Moama community for nearly 45 years. We currently have 17 GPs consulting from our rooms. We are committed to providing quality healthcare to the rural community in a professional caring and compassionate manner. Our operating values of Respect, Integrity, Collaboration and Excellence guide all our interactions and are the measures to which we hold ourselves.
Since opening in 1975 as Nish Street Medical Practice we have undergone several expansions in a bid to provide better facilities and more room for our patients. Operating from 2 clinics our aim is to maintain the feel of a local family practice whilst providing the highest level of medical care. Our Moama clinic services the community of Moama on the NSW side of the Murray River. In 2012 we opened a new purpose built teaching practice in Echuca on the Victorian side of the Murray river offering a working environment of 14 consulting rooms, a 4 bed treatment room and contemporary patient waiting area that encourages our staff to develop strong relationships with patients. This helps us provide better health care and provide an optimal teaching environment for our GPs in the education of the Medical Students, Interns and Registrars that we have placed with us each year.
Echuca Moama Family Medical Practice has a long history of providing training to students in the medical field, we remain committed to continuing this and developing medical practitioners that have a focus on quality patient care. Our strong relations with Echuca Regional Health allows us to offer our GPs opportunities to undertake hospital work, specialisations in Obstetrics, Anaesthetics and Emergency Medicine as well as Visiting Medical Officer (VMO) appointments.
