We exist so country Australians can access the best healthcare, closer to home.
For more than 20 years, Marathon Health – and our predecessor organisations – has been supporting country Australians to thrive by developing and delivering accessible, quality health and wellbeing services.
In 2017 we received the NSW Business Chamber Employer of Choice Award, and currently employ more than 245 staff working in over 80 regional communities. The majority of our staff were born in regional, rural or remote Australia, and 10% identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
