About Sonic Healthcare

Sonic Healthcare is one of the world's largest medical diagnostics companies, providing laboratory and diagnostic imaging services to medical practitioners, hospitals, community health services, and their collective patients. We also operate Australia's largest network of primary care medical centres - Independent Practitioner Network (IPN) - as well as other healthcare businesses.

Our medically-led practices are dedicated to providing outstanding quality and service to the doctors and patients that they serve. Our success is underpinned by our commitment to medical sovereignty and independence.

Sonic Healthcare was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in 1987 and, following a reconstitution of the Board in 1993, has experienced exceptional growth. Since 1993, our annual revenues have risen from A$25 million to over A$5 billion, and we have become a top 50 company on the ASX.
