As Chairman of the Mater Health Services Board, I am in a privileged position. Often I get to witness ideas for new services, innovative strategies for improvement, the latest medical technology and exciting new research advances all to ensure better health care outcomes for patients.

A small publication called 100 Stories was compiled at the time of the Mater centenary in 2006. The writers—patients and family members, past and present staff members and Sisters of Mercy—invited us to remember and honour those who in the past 100 years upheld the Mercy philosophy of providing compassionate health care for the sick and needy.


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.
