About MedTeCCH

In response to the national focus on building resilience against economic shocks and supply chain disruptions catalysed by COVID-19 in 2020, RDA Hunter, in collaboration with industry peak bodies and regional stakeholders, identified Medical Technologies & Pharmaceuticals (MTP) as a sector with real potential to drive regional growth across the Hunter Central Coast.
Given the region’s reputation for medical excellence at both clinical and research levels, its advanced manufacturing capability, and potential to leverage its traditional capabilities to expand knowledge-led industries and jobs, RDA Hunter formed MedTeCCH.
MedTeCCH is an industry-led network of Central Coast Hunter (CCH)-based MedTech and Pharma companies, national industry associations, sector specialists, and education & research organisations. It was established to build the region’s MTP cluster, and to identify and capture opportunities to grow and diversify the sector.
