Mater Pathology rapid growth continues

Wednesday, 12 November 2008

In November 2008 Mater Pathology opened its 17th and latest collection centre, capping off a year of rapid and exciting growth for Mater Pathology. Based in Wickham Terrace, this collection centre is located within the heart of Brisbane’s most well known medical specialist precinct.

Mater Pathology opened another four purpose-built collection centres throughout the year at Wynnum, Capalaba, Springfield and Yamanto.

The relocation of collection centres at Sunnybank Hills, Oxley and Coorparoo during the year also enabled Mater Pathology to improve and upgrade existing centres to make them more accessible and convenient for patients.

All Mater Pathology collection centres are staffed by trained phlebotomists, whose Certificate III in Pathology qualifications are recognised by the Australian National Training Authority and are experienced in the collection of adult, maternity, paediatric and neonatal tests.

Mater Pathology’s collection centres are complemented by a comprehensive and fully bulk billed home collection service for southside patients, allowing them access to Mater Pathology’s expertise from the comfort of their own homes. This is a convenient option for all patients, particularly the elderly, disabled or mothers with young children.
