About Clifford Hallam Healthcare

For over 79 years, CH2 has been dedicated to our fundamental purpose - Enabling Australian Healthcare.

The name CH2 comes from our strong Australian heritage and the collaboration of two uniquely Australian companies – the Victorian Hospitals Association (later Hospital Supplier of Australia or HSA), and Clifford Hallam Pharmaceuticals.

Clifford Hallam Pharmaceuticals was formed in 1978 by Chevel Coonan and Clifford Rex Skiller.  Clifford's business associate owned the Hallam Chemist in York St Sydney.

With a joint vision of providing excellence in the Australian healthcare supply industry, tapping into expert local knowledge, HSA and Clifford Hallam Healthcare merged in 2006 to become the CH2  we know today.

Today CH2 is Australia’s only fully integrated pharmaceutical and medical consumable distributor - servicing the entire healthcare market made up of 5 business units:
