CardioVascular Unit

Through its dedicated CardioVascular Unit (CVU) Mater Private Hospital Brisbane has been providing cardiovascular interventional services since 2006.

Boasting an outstanding clinical team, state-of-the-art technology and world-class doctors, Mater Private CVU is an outstanding addition to Mater’s already impressive list of clinical innovations.

The Mater Private cardiovascular service was literally built from the ground up. A nurse unit manager was employed well before the unit opened to contribute to the design and commissioning of the catheter labs.

As a result, Mater Private boasts a clinically superior layout which benefits visiting specialists, nursing staff and patients. The facility features state-of-the-art technology and a unique software package to assist in recording and retrieving patient data.

An Exceptional Team

Mater Private’s CardioVascular Unit is full of exceptional people. The multidisciplinary team, made up of cardiologists, vascular surgeons, radiologists, radiographers, nurses and nurse educators are leaders in their field and provide an outstanding level of care in line with the hospital’s commitment to exceptional care.

Staff at the Mater Private CVU work closely with the doctors and nurses at Mater Private Emergency Care Centre and Mater Private Coronary Care Unit to provide a level of care second to none for people with cardiac and vascular related illness.
