Celebrating 40 Years!

Below is the story of our beginnings by Kelvin Dickens our Founder.

In 1974 whilst working at Adelaide Central Methodist Mission I realised that Aldersgate Village with its 400+ residents was able to purchase supplies at considerably better prices than Lentara Children’s Homes with its 60 children in residence.

New CCI Business Development Manager Skye Hutchins

P:(08) 83618842

I first started in the healthcare industry working within a nursing home, which then bought me into healthcare sales.
I have worked with two major suppliers in Adelaide over the last few years, which has given me great experience and product knowledge of the goods and services that CCI contracts can provide.
Over the coming weeks, I would love to meet with CCI member’s, and to see if there is any way that I can be of assistance to you as an additional benefit to your membership.

Saving you more money...

CCI now offers you a 1300 number as a main contact for our office.

If you call from a landline and use 1300 559 318, there will be no charge to your organisation.
