2008 has been another year of great achievements for Mater Health Services.

The opening of the new Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, the refurbishments of the Adult Hospital and Emergency Department and the successful relocation of the Queensland Paediatric Cardiac Service to Mater Children’s Hospitals are only a few of the capital works completed.

Mater’s commitment to Mission is expressed in the everyday delivery of patient care and through special outreach projects for the community. It is also expressed by a commitment to future sustainability, not only of our services but of our planet.

The 2007 Annual Review was a wonderful example of this approach. Instead of the usual glossy magazine, it was an attractive but smaller printed edition on 100 per cent recycled paper with further information provided on a website. Congratulations to those who inspired and carried out this project.

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly express the thanks of the Sisters of Mercy for the beautiful artwork “Embrace” that recognises the contribution of 263 Sisters of Mercy at the Mater from 1906 to 2006.

To the Members of the Company (Mater Misericordiae Health Services Brisbane Ltd), the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer (Dr John O’Donnell), his Senior Executive Team and all staff, volunteers and supporters of Mater, thank you and congratulations on your commitment to compassionate care and professionalism in a spirit of collaboration and innovation.

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.
