Healthscope is an Australian company which operates private hospitals, a pathology business and medical centres. The company is headquartered in St. Kilda Road, Melbourne. The company operates medical/surgical hospitals as well as a number of psychiatric and rehabilitation clinics. It is one of Australia's largest human, veterinary, commercial and molecular pathology providers, and operates medical centres and specialised skin cancer clinics around the country.


Healthscope was founded in 1985 to acquire The Melbourne Clinic, a psychiatric facility in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond. The company has since grown mainly through building and acquiring hospitals. It went public on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1994 in order to fund the A$75m acquisition of six hospitals in Adelaide and one in Darwin from SGIC, an insurance company.

During 2004 and 2005 the company underwent a strong growth phase. Healthscope got into the pathology business in late December 2004 with the acquisition of the Gribbles Group, formerly a publicly listed pathology company. In May 2005 it acquired another Australian publicly listed hospital operator, Nova Health. Also in May 2005 the company acquired a Singapore pathology company called Quest. In September 2005 it announced the acquisition of the Affinity group of hospitals. In October 2005 it acquired Primary Care Skin Cancer Clinic Group, a network of skin cancer clinics. And in December 2005 the company acquired the Sydney pathology company Davies Campbell de Lambert.
