For me, 2008 was another truly remarkable example of Mater Health Services living the values and continuing the important Mission of the Sisters of Mercy.

It was a year of great change—upheaval even—with the opening of the new Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, the launch of the redeveloped Mater Adult Hospital and the planning, development and building works undertaken for the new Queensland Children’s Hospital.

Through all of this progress and commotion, Mater staff continued to work through every day and provide exceptional care for our patients and the community. This passion and commitment embodies the charism of the Sisters of Mercy that lives on through the very people who work at Mater today.

Together, we keep the Mater Mission and Values alive, while continuing to provide compassionate care for the sick and needy and plan for another exceptional year ahead.

Thank you for the special part you play in pursuing innovation and excellence and delivering health care to address unmet needs across the community. You’re doing an exceptional job every day.

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.
