Mater. Exceptional People. Exceptional Care.


Welcome to 2009 in Review!

Mater Health Services is an important Ministry of the Sisters of Mercy providing quality health care through seven hospitals—three hospitals for uninsured patients and four private hospitals—Mater Medical Research Institute, and a range of community-based health services.

Every day at Mater Health Services a new story unfolds.

There are stories of unsung heroes, triumphs, tragedies, new discoveries, compassion, humility, innovation and more.

This is our story for 2009.

    2009 was the year Mater Health Services achieved recognition as one of the highest accredited hospital groups in Australia.


To ensure we continue our commitment to meet the health care needs of the community, Mater has developed business strategies which address the issues of financial, social and environmental sustainability.

This website has been developed in accord with these strategies, and is the accompaniment to a summary document printed on recycled paper.
