It's three minutes into the first day of January 2008 and a 23-year-old motorcyclist has just arrived by ambulance. He is suffering from a closed head injury, lower limb fractures and an open leg wound. So begins another routine day at Mater Health Services, the first for 2008 …
As is traditional with an annual review, we asked a couple of our leaders for their comments and reflections on 2008. In fact, John O’Donnell even agreed to an interview!
On any given day at Mater Health Services up to 7500 staff members and volunteers work together to develop new methods, practices and techniques for better patient outcomes. Each story on this site is an account that showcases Mater’s exceptional year for 2008.
As a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy, we are committed to a holistic approach to health care in response to changing community needs.
Mater staff are dedicated to providing highest quality health care services, through a sincere commitment to the Mater's core values of Mercy, Dignity, Care, Commitment and Quality.
