Mater Children's Private Brisbane


Back in 1998 when Mater Children’s Private Hospital first opened its doors, it was Australia’s first private hospital for sick children. Since that time, Mater has provided care for thousands of children and their families through a team of exceptional staff and outstanding visiting doctors.

Today, Mater Children’s Private Brisbane continues to provide Queensland families with access to leading paediatric doctors, nurses and care providers from our new look stand-alone facility for families who choose to self-finance or have private health insurance.

The former Mater Children’s Hospital building has been refurbished to provide new services ensuring Mater can continue to meet community needs of today.  To coincide with the refurbishment the building name has changed to Salmon Building, in memory of Mother Alban Salmon.

Mater Children's Private Brisbane provides a range of services all conveniently from the one location. The Inpatient Ward is located on Level 7 and the Day Unit on Level 5 of the Salmon Building.  

Visiting Hours

Visiting Hours: 7 am to 7 pm.
