About Us

In 2007 Mathew Wood (Founder and Managing Director) started Omegapharm using his 18 years of healthcare experience. His vision was to develop a business model that focused on providing hospital pharmacists with supply solutions for products that were being ignored by the Pharmaceutical industry. Omegapharms’ established product range has been developed by Mathew in consultation with hospital pharmacists.

Mathew's healthcare career began in 1991 when he joined Hospital Supplies of Australia (formally Victorian Healthcare Association) as a Contracts Officer. Since then he has worked in all aspects of the healthcare industry including State Tender Contract Management, Hospital Distribution (including setting up the first Ward Logistics program ‘Ward Box’ for pharmaceuticals at Cabrini in Melbourne), and has held various Senior Management roles within the Pharmaceutical Industry effectively rising from the office clerk to the sole owner and creator of Australia’s newest pharmaceutical company Omegapharm.

Mathew is a ‘hands-on’ owner and he directs all aspects of the business.

His first achievement was to sign manufacturing agreements with two established global vertically integrated pharmaceutical suppliers. Thus, securing long term commitments to supply Australian hospitals with the highest quality TGA registered products. To attract and win the support of these suppliers was a fantastic achievement given that he was competing against two of the largest global pharmaceutical companies for the distribution rights in Australia.

The final step was to find a distribution partner that could uphold Omegapharm’s commitment to provide supply solutions to hospital pharmacists. Having worked successfully with Symbion Pharmacy during his 10 years at Bristol-Myers Squibb, it was clear that Symbion were the only healthcare distributor that could meet Omegapharm’s requirements. Symbion Pharmacy will provide exclusive 3PL distribution for Omegapharm products.

With these two important milestones completed Mathew’s sole focus is now on the customer. He will dedicate all of his time and energy to ensure Omegapharm sets new industry service standards on how to conduct business with hospital pharmacists.

There is only the future....
