Orange Aboriginal Medical Service or OAMS is making a difference to the health of Aboriginal families and the wider community of Central Western NSW. OAMS started in 2005, as a self determined Aboriginal organisation with a vision to be a leader in health and in the community.

OAMS governance structure is commended by Commonwealth Health and provides flexibility to take advantage of opportunities, and that means OAMS can deliver health outcomes with a difference!   The  GP-led medical service is complimented by integrated on-going care with other health professionals, and supported by appointment booking, patient transport and follow up.

A whole of life approach to health, OAMS provides health services from antenatal, dental and a range of health programs, all delivered in a culturally sensitive manner.  With a large number of clients, plus the majority of Aboriginal people in Orange using the service, OAMS is helping to ‘Close the Gap’ in Indigenous health.
