A Catholic not-for-profit ministry of Mercy Partners, Mater is guided by the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy who first established Mater in 1906 when they built the first Mater Private Hospital. This was the start of a tradition of care and compassion for the sick and needy that continues to inspire us today.
Through our extensive network of hospitals, health centres and related businesses, a nationally accredited education provider and a world-class research institute, we're working together to meet the needs of the community and improve your health and wellbeing.
In delivering the healing ministry of Jesus we not only respond to, but actively seek to support individuals and families disadvantaged by health or social circumstances. We are able to meet these needs by reinvesting any revenue from the business back into the provision of health care services.
Like our founders, we are dedicated to providing our services through a sincere commitment to our Mission and core values of Mercy, Dignity, Care, Commitment and Quality.
