CH2 can trace its origins back to when the Victoria Hospitals Association (VHA) was legally registered. Group purchasing on behalf of hospital members was the main function of the VHA when formed.
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 leading pharmaceutical and medical healthcare service provider with over 10,000 healthcare customers, 40,000 direct to patient clients and a catalogue of over 50,000 products from 800 suppliers.
CH2 is growing strongly through 6 business units – Hospital, Retail Pharmacy, Aged & Community Care, Primary Care, Veterinary and Contract Logistics which are supported by seven warehouses nationally. CH2 has a field sales force of experienced Business Development Managers with dedicated Customer Service staff in each business unit. Our vision has been to Enable Australian Healthcare driven by our customer and supplier needs.
“The last 80 years is only part of our journey and I look forward to working with our valued suppliers, customers and employees into the future as we continue to grow CH2 and service the healthcare market,” - CEO David Collins.
