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.

Mater will no longer provide publicly funded services through Mater Children’s Hospital following its closure. However, Mater Children’s Private Brisbane will continue to offer paediatric services for families who choose to self-finance or who have private health insurance. Mater Children’s Private Brisbane is a new stand-alone facility providing access to Queensland's leading paediatric doctors, nurses and care providers.

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

We look forward to opening a fully refurbished Mater Children's Private Brisbane to meet the needs of our patients and families very soon.
