Healthia welcomes 16 new Partners at Clinic Class Shareholder event

Healthia has been rapidly expanding its network of podiatry, physiotherapy and optometry clinics with the promotion of 16 new Partners

We are two years into the global pandemic, and we have all hear the words “the new norm” too many times.  The one thing that has been an obvious “new norm” at Healthia is the lack of inner clinic connections the pandemic has created.  Therefore, moving into financial year 2023, Healthia is placing a greater emphasis on building these connections.

Our focus as a company is to CONNECT, SUPPORT and INSPIRE our teams and the communities we operate in.  There are two key events that will support this focus in the next 6 months, being the CCS Event and the Healthia Conference.


On the weekend of 17-18 June, Healthia was proud to welcome the Clinic Class Shareholder (CCS) group to the Hilton in Brisbane to participate in two days of training and celebration. Healthia’s model is one of partnership, where we strive to SUPPORT career aspirations, and INSPIRE business ownership, for exceptional team members.

With over 160 clinic class shareholders across Australia and New Zealand, the opportunity to CONNECT, and to come together to collaborate was full of energy, and a very significant moment for Healthia. The CCS Event will become a highlight in the calendar, and moving forward, will be held in the month of October every alternate year to the Healthia Conference.

Two days of training for our CCS partners and our management teams provided the opportunity to consolidate a busy 12 months for the group following the acquisition of the Back in Motion and Motion Health groups, as well as 15 additional physiotherapy and hand therapy businesses. Key focus areas were Healthia values, strategy, communication, technology roadmap and leadership training.

Healthia would also like to thank external presenters Peter Munckton (BOQ Chief Economist) and Bhupesh Kaphle (BDO Business Services Partner) for making time on their Saturday to present at the CCS Event.

A cocktail event on the pool deck at the Hilton on the Saturday evening was a great opportunity for the teams to get together in a relaxed social setting, and to mingle in person after many months online.

Chairman Dr Glen Richards joined for the evening to address the CCS cohort and to formally acknowledge and welcome 16 new clinic class shareholders to business ownership alongside Healthia. We were thrilled to celebrate this exciting milestone in the careers of our newest CCS partners, and we very much look forward to SUPPORTing them in their partnership journeys ahead.


The next key education and training event on the Healthia calendar is the highly anticipated Healthia Conference “Inspired 2022”.  Inspired 2022 will be held at Sea World Resort on the Gold Coast on October 14-15, 2022. Planning for the conference is well underway, with our registration portal now open and finalisation of the program to include of a quality line up of inspirational presenters.

Keynote speakers include Healthia Chairman Dr Glen Richards, 2020 Australian of the Year Ophthalmologist Dr James Muecke, futurist Michael McQueen, and many well-respected professionals from allied health, medical and business fields. With well over 1000 attendees expected to converge on the Gold Coast, the Inspired 2022 conference is bound to be another wonderful, festive celebration of CONNECTion and professional development for the Healthia family.
