A Catholic not-for-profit ministry of Mercy Partners, Mater comprises several hospitals, health centres and related businesses, a nationally accredited health education provider, and a world-class medical research institute.

We are committed to meeting the healthcare needs of the community through an integrated approach to health, education and research which is focused on delivering the highest quality of care for our patients.

Mater Health comprises all Mater hospitals, health centres, Mater Pathology and Mater Pharmacy. These services combine to help Mater offer comprehensive healthcare which meets identified community need.

Mater Health is focused on improving the design and delivery of public and private healthcare models through the creation of medically-led clinical streams across five disciplines: cancer care services; medical/chronic disease services; mothers, babies and women’s health services; neurosciences and surgical/acute services. This model of healthcare delivery supports our aim of providing low-variability, evidence-based care, while maintaining a genuine focus on high quality, individualised customer service.

Mater Education is a nationally accredited, independent, hospital based Registered Training Organisation—the only one of its kind in Queensland. It offers a range of courses for students, through to highly experienced practicing clinicians.

Mater Education is an Affiliate Partner of the internationally renowned Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) in Boston, USA. As the only Affiliate Partner in Australia (and one of only three in the world), Mater Education and its alumni have an exclusive level of access to the resources, skills, advice and experience of a team who are international leaders in the simulation field.

Mater Research is an internationally recognised leader in medical research, which connects its findings from bench to bedside, translating medical research into clinical practice to deliver better outcomes for our patients and the wider community. Established in 1998 with a primary focus in cancer research, the world-class institute has since expanded to include research within fields including immunology, mental health, maternity studies, diabetes and obesity.

In 2013, Mater Research and The University of Queensland formalised a long-standing relationship to form the Mater Research Institute – University of Queensland (MRI-UQ). MRI-UQ is an alliance between the two leading institutions working together to achieve the best possible research discoveries in health.

By delivering on our aim to improve healthcare through the strategic and consistent integration of health, education and research, Mater will continue to fulfil our Mission to provide compassionate care to those who need it most.
