Australia's First Registered Health Fund

In November 2021, rt health launched a poignant video to showcase its long and proud history. 

With historical photos to illustrate, it touches on the health of the first colony of NSW, how railway workers in Sydney started the Railway & Transport hospital fund in 1889, effects of the Spanish Flu, two world wars, booming membership in the 1940s and 50s, impacts of government changes to healthcare legislation, right through to our merger on 1 November 2021 with HCF, Australia’s largest mutual, not-for-profit health fund.
