Wirraka Maya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation

Wirraka Maya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation [ICN 1855] (WMHSAC) is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service designed to ensure our clients' journey through the health system meets their medical, health, social and cultural needs.

WMHSAC originated from the efforts of Aboriginal people to establish a health service that addressed the unmet needs of Aboriginal people in the Port Hedland, South Hedland areas and surrounding communities.

WMHSAC has over 7,000 Aboriginal people registered and are actively engaged and regularly receiving primary care, wellbeing and prevention services and programs. 

We have an experienced team of health professionals, that include Aboriginal Health Workers and Practitioners, GP's and Nurses who work together to improve the health outcomes of Aboriginal people. We also have visiting Specialists and Allied Health Practitioners.  They are supported by the Administrative staff.


WMHSAC is accredited for AGPAL, NDIS and QIP standards that undergoes a review of its standards every 3 years.


Wirraka Maya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation (WMHSAC)’s mission is to provide evidence-based and best practice primary health care services, social and emotional wellbeing services, as well as a recognised educational and training service currently providing Cert IV in Primary Health Care. The service acknowledges the role of the Aboriginal community members in caring for the health of their immediate and extended families and recognises and respects the diversity of Aboriginal culture within our service area.

Wirraka Maya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation (WMHSAC) appreciates the significance of Aboriginal traditional healers and their roles in the health and wellbeing of community and endeavours to be sensitive to cultural customs and traditions. The organisation values the skills, the experience, the knowledge, and the local history the Aboriginal people brings to the organisation.
