About Us

At Hardes & Associates our primary goal is to achieve better outcomes for the Australian Health System by providing the best evidence-based market information available.


We are a family owned and operated business located in Newcastle NSW.

Dr Greg Hardes founded the business in 1996. Since then, the Hardes family and a small team of like-minded data enthusiasts have been providing the go-to suite of health service strategic planning products for all healthcare providers.

The company provides services to both the public and private sector. In the public sector every Australian State and Territory either has used or is currently using our demand/supply modelling for both strategic planning and capital works. In the private sector, we currently provide market opportunity analyses to the majority of the Private Hospitals in Australia. At the International level the company has been involved in demand analysis in the UK, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Brunei, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Hardes Data

With over 25 years’ experience, the term ‘Hardes Data’ has become synonymous with healthcare demand and supply modelling. The Hardes Data is known across the country as the most accurate, reliable and trusted source of evidence-based quantitative health sector analyses.

More Than Data

Delivering the “gold standard” in healthcare data is essential, but it’s not the only thing that is important. At Hardes & Associates, we put just as much effort into the end-user experience. We understand that not everyone is a data analyst, and nor do they want to be! That’s why, in addition to comprehensive datasets, we provide automated programs and visualisations that are user-friendly and can be used by anyone.
