Our Values

Mater staff are dedicated to providing highest quality health care services, through a sincere commitment to Mater's core values of Mercy, Dignity, Care, Commitment and Quality. Using these values as a guide for our interactions with our patients and their families, each other and our business partners, Mater staff promote the professionalism and care that has been a part of the Mater since its beginnings.

Mercy, Dignity, Care, Commitment, and Quality

Mercy—The spirit of responding to one another
By being merciful we can bring forgiveness, joy, peace, kindness, compassion and hope to all in our care.
Dignity—The spirit of humanity, respecting the worth of each person
Each person we encounter in our working day deserves our respect; patients, visitors, co-workers.
Care—The spirit of compassion
We show that we care for one another by being sensitive to each others' needs and showing kindness.
Commitment—The spirit of integrity
Being committed to those who entrust themselves to us is a responsibility we take seriously.
Quality—The spirit of professionalism
We strive to be leaders in our fields and to combine that skill with humanity and warmth.

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.
