The story of Infectious
Back in 2001, Pete Doran, a busy emergency nurse, recognised the need for more functional, durable, and professional-looking medical scrubs that enabled him to work comfortably and effectively at work.
After trying (unsuccessfully) to find scrubs that fit the bill, Pete and his wife Sally secured the rights to retail Dickies Medical Scrubs in Australia and set about changing how Australians viewed scrub uniforms and started the scrubs revolution.
Pete, Sally and the Infectious team have since been a driving force in the medical scrubs industry, transforming uncomfortable, unflattering, and old-fashioned scrubs into modern, stylish and comfortable scrubs that everyone wants to wear! Our team at Infectious proved that scrubs were not just for the operating theatre.
Since those early beginnings, the Infectious team has grown consistently and become Australia’s leading uniform provider. We manage uniform solutions for individuals and entire hospitals and service all industries, including Medical Centres, Dental Practices, Aged Care, Vets, Medical Imaging, Franchise Groups, Beauty, and Laser Therapists.
Commitment to our community
Having seen the impact of the pandemic over the past two years on mental health, especially in the healthcare sector, we wanted to find a way to give back to the profession that is at the coal face of keeping our community safe. For this reason, we partnered with the nationally renowned and local mental health research institute, The Thompson Institute, to sponsor 100 healthcare workers to enrol in their newest training initiative, The Suicide Alertness Program.
To show our gratitude to healthcare workers, we partnered with Instagram-famous Kennilworth Bakery to donate some delicious doughnuts to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, Nambour Hospital and Gympie Hospital during the 3rd week of March this year.
Fun Friday Scrub Club
Fun Friday Scrub Club is a mental health initiative we started as a fun way to check in and celebrate the hardworking people who wear scrubs! To find out how to join our club, click here.
