From Humble Beginnings

In 2019 – almost 20 years since Nhulundu began its humble, grassroots services with a handful of clients and a few hours care each per week, we are now proud to be one of the largest health-care providers in the region with over 40 highly competent staff and a budget in excess of $4 million dollars to deliver holistic care across a range of health services.

In 2000 – Nhulundu Wooribah Indigenous Health Organisation was incorporated.  Run by parent body Gehgre and Nhulundu Health Service until 2007 and in 2016, we underwent a name change to Gladstone Region Aboriginal and Islander Community Controlled Health Service (GRAICCHS) t/a Nhulundu Health Service.

We are an incorporated Aboriginal organisation, initiated by and based in a local Aboriginal community, and governed by an Aboriginal body that is elected by that Aboriginal community. These are the obligations of the Gladstone Region Aboriginal and Islander Community Controlled Health Service – otherwise known and trading as Nhulundu Health Service.

Our guiding mission all along has been to provide a safe, friendly environment for our people with access to the latest and up to date services and information and health education. We will empower our community to make informed decisions about their health and assist the rest of the Gladstone region to understand the important role Nhulundu Health Service plays in the overall health care standards of our town.
