Two decades ago, Newcastle woman Carolyn Ryan embarked on a journey with a passion to transform the landscape of healthcare apparel, giving life to Hunter Scrubs. From humble beginnings in her laundry, her dream has now grown into a thriving business with a global presence that has changed the healthcare industry.

This mother of three’s inspiration for starting Hunter Scrubs stemmed from a personal experience. Her husband, an ICU nurse, found the scrubs provided in Australian hospital departments lacking in quality compared to those he had worn abroad. Fuelled by the belief there must be a better solution, Ms Ryan made a bold career shift from speech pathology to retail, launching Hunter Scrubs.

Fast forward to the present, Hunter Scrubs has now evolved into a one-stop destination for healthcare professionals, offering a diverse range of scrub brands. Hunter Scrubs also manufactures onsite in sunny Redhead, Australia, creating custom attire including scrub tops, scrub caps, and embroidery for medial practitioners across the country and the world.

Our philosophy is straightforward: empower healthcare workers with comfortable, stylish, and high-quality workwear to enhance their performance during their shifts.

Beyond the Attire

Hunter Scrubs embraces a socially responsible approach to work, currently employing 15 people, many of whom are working mothers. This unique approach to employment fosters a flexible working environment, allowing mothers to balance work and family life.

For a unique point of difference to the cluttered scrubs retail environment, Hunter Scrubs engages in meaningful collaborations with female artists to create patterned scrub tops. This includes a successful partnership with Indigenous artist Brittany Paulson and upcoming partnerships with local female powerhouse artists launching in May. (Watch this

Hunter Scrubs actively contributes to education initiatives, providing work experience opportunities for students, including those with disabilities. The company has also trained female Syrian refugees in sewing, empowering them with the skills and means to work from home.

Hunter Scrubs extends its impact beyond borders, actively participating in philanthropic endeavours. Ms Ryan and her team have sponsored doctors and nurses in third-world countries, providing them with essential scrubs. Personal involvement in rural Vietnam, offering scrubs and medical equipment to village hospitals, reflects their commitment to making a difference in healthcare settings worldwide.

Hunter Scrubs looks to a bright future and, would like to thank our loyal customers for their ongoing support.
