About Our Client
Our client operates four Renal Health Centres in the Kimberley region, which faces one of the highest incidences of kidney disease in Australia, with chronic and end-stage kidney disease disproportionately affecting the Aboriginal population.

In collaboration with regional Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS), our client has developed a strategic renal plan to address this health crisis. This initiative has enabled many patients to return to Kimberley from Perth, 2,500 km away, to receive treatment closer to home.
