The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) is Australia’s national peak body for public and not-for-profit hospitals and healthcare providers.
Our vision is for a healthy Australia supported by the best possible healthcare system.
Our membership includes state health departments, Local Hospital Networks and public hospitals, community health services, Primary Health Networks and primary healthcare providers, aged care providers, universities, individual health professionals and academics. As such, we are uniquely placed to be an independent, national voice for universal high-quality healthcare to benefit the whole community.

For more than 25 years we have helped businesses acquire assets across Australia and New Zealand. But in 2016 we reimagined our funding model. Our approach enables businesses that have exhausted traditional funding avenues, to unlock new capital for growth. It also helps entities impacted by changing accounting standards avoid increasing leverage on their balance sheet.
In Australia alone, estimates indicate capital expenditure requirements for FY18 stand at more than $100 billion. At Maia Financial we are here to help businesses meet these requirements without tapping into their senior debt.
This is achieved using our unique model, which deploys private and institutional funds, and leverages business critical assets (or BCAs) with a limited or unknown market value. Maia Financial is owned by Independent private investment firm, Monash Private Capital.
