During your stay
Mater Children's Private Brisbane’s staff are dedicated to providing your child with the highest quality specialist care and service from preadmission to discharge.
Spacious single and sibling rooms
The majority of our rooms are large single rooms at Mater Children’s Private Brisbane. All of our single rooms include an ensuite and a day bed for a parent or carer to stay overnight. Each room has a telephone, television, security safe and mini-fridge.
We also provide sibling (double) rooms, with the ensuite facility adjacent to the room.
Being stuck in a bed all day can get very boring, which is why Mater Children’s Private Brisbane has a range of exciting indoor and outdoor children's entertainment to enjoy.
Parent’s lounge and kitchenette
We understand that having a child in hospital is a stressful time for a parent. While providing compassionate care to your child is our number one priority, we care about your needs too.
Our parent’s lounge provides a space for you to have a coffee, read a magazine, or talk with one of our volunteers and other parents. It is located close to our Day Unit on level 5, so you are never far from your child while they are in surgery.
There is also a parent or guardian kitchenette overlooking the children’s playground on level 7 as part of the inpatient ward so you can enjoy a hot cup of tea while watching your child at play.
It is important to take a moment for yourself, so you are best prepared to support the needs of your child.
Hours for visitors are from 7 am to 7 pm. Parents are free to visit 24 hours per day.
