Supply and distribution

HealthShare Victoria (HSV) works with health services and suppliers to manage the flow of goods and services across the Victorian health sector.

HSV has established a supply chain for Victoria’s public health sector, transforming into statewide service organisation.

Our end-to-end medical consumables supply chain integrates sourcing, ordering, purchasing, warehousing, and delivery, to bring a range of benefits for health services. 

We help hospitals to support better patient outcomes, chiefly by maximising their purchasing power through more consistent stock availability and significant discounts for bulk orders.

In achieving these goals, we recognise the importance of safety, customer engagement and service, clinical expertise and operational excellence. 

In December 2021, we opened Victoria’s largest warehouse for public health goods in Derrimut, north west Melbourne, covering 24,000 square metres.

The following year, seven health service customers were onboarded and began ordering products from HSV. This first tranche of health services includes:

  • The Royal Melbourne Hospital
  • The Royal Children’s Hospital
  • The Royal Women’s Hospital
  • The Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital
  • Northern Health
  • Western Health
  • The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. 

We’re now finalising the necessary system infrastructure to support a wider roll-out of our operations at scale to Victoria’s public health sector.
