Atticus Health William Street is located in the legal precinct of the Melbourne central business district. Here you can find the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Supreme Court and County Court all close by. Melbourne was first founded in 1835 and went on to boom in the 1850s after gold was found at Ballarat and Bendigo. William Street is named after William IV, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain from 1830 – 1837.
Since 1982 William Street Clinic (as it was known prior to being a part of Atticus Health) has catered to the specific needs of people who work in the city who need to see a doctor. The clinic was started by Dr Harry Imber and Dr Kaz Czuba. Kaz retired in 2019, leaving Harry and Enza (the receptionist of some 36 years) to continue their good work.
These days, the clinic continue continues to serve the needs of city folk and has been particularly famed for running on time, which is very helpful to the busy professionals who use the service. Being located in the legal precinct, the patient set of the clinic includes many lawyers, judges and others who work in the legal profession. Patients attend for day to day needs and many benefit from an annual health review.
Apart from those who come to Melbourne city to work, there is a 184,000 resident population with a median age of 28 years. A city of coffee aficionados, interestingly there are 2390 cafes and restaurants in Melbourne city! It also has the largest tram system in the world, outside of Europe, and, according to the Crimes Act 1958, if you meet with a pirate in Melbourne, you must not trade with them!
Atticus Health took over William Street Clinic in 2020 when the COVID19 pandemic left Melbourne CBD largely empty. The Atticus team instantly resonated with the caring culture and quality driven ethos of the clinic and sought to become a part of its rich history, and indeed ensure that its future was intact and strong.
Well, I guess it all started in 2010 when I saw the old “Boatshed Café” for sale across the road from Carrum Station. The house behind the café was being sold with it. I took a walk down to the Patterson River, fell in love with the whole thing, signed away and thought, this is beautiful.
Business plan – what business plan?

When it comes to healthcare, from the outset, we consider first the whole person or organisation, their goals and aspirations. A deep understanding of that allows for the best decisions and outcomes to be reached in partnership after all. With this mentality, we’ve been able to grow. Grow, yet stay humble, still.
The areas we have grown into reflect areas in which we think we can make a real difference and feel highly motivated to be involved with. These areas are:
Medical clinics. We run several GP clinics. This is where we started and continue to persevere, always striving for improvement.
Corporate health. We are happy to work with motivated workplaces to help maximise the health outcomes of their employee base. We consider that workplaces have relevance to and potential input in the health and well being of a community. We conduct our corporate health services with due independence and impartiality, yet at the same time seek to foster a mutual sense of purpose and transparent communication for the benefit of all parties.
Aged Care. We consider the frail and elderly to be particular members of the community who we have a responsibility to care for. From humble beginnings we have grown to supply GP services to nearly 1000 patients living in retirement villages and nursing homes around Melbourne. In particular we are the main provider of GP services to nursing homes on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Within aged care, our mission is to deliver a 24/7 medical service. We coordinate this by accepting all calls anytime via 1800 ATTICUS (1800 288 4287). Through the cultivation of a strong reputation for quality and compassion over many years, we have seen this area of our business grow substantially.
Telehealth. By attending to matters in a flexible manner by the exchange of images or conversation digitally, we have grown accustomed to creating solutions remotely. This concept, “Telehealth”, does improve efficiency, accessibility and timeliness of health care. It is for this reason that we now offer telehealth services nationwide – it simply makes good sense.
One thing has remained constant throughout, that is, our commitment to getting to know and understand communities. As a provider of medical services, fundamentally we learn so much about the fabric of a community. We share in its ups and downs. As such, we feel compelled to promote deeper, meaningful community spirit. And, we recognise how great an impact this potentially and actually has on the outcomes of health – for the individual and for the collective. Our story then, is very much that of being one with the community.
