Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, with an office in Auckland, New Zealand, RHCG offers a wide range of consumables, equipment, and pharmaceuticals – including many on an exclusive or semi-exclusive basis – primarily to public- and private-sector customers. The day-to-day operations of RHCG are led by General Manager Stephen Doorey, who will continue to manage the business under the highly regarded Regional Health Care Group brand.
