Mater brings together more than a century of expertise and compassionate care to improve the health of the Springfield community.

We deliver this through the provision of world-leading healthcare – inside hospitals, in people’s homes and in the community, including targeted services for refugee and First Nations communities.

Addressing unmet health needs is central to Mater’s mission and was the driving force behind Mater’s decision to build the first hospital in the master-planned community of Springfield in 2015. The proposed Stage 2 expansion of the hospital will meet the current and future health needs of the rapidly growing Western Corridor and provides the State Government with a number of significant advantages over other options for delivering hospital services in the region.

World class healthcare services 

The expansion will deliver the following infrastructure:

  • 174 public overnight and same-day beds, bringing the total number of beds to 233 
  • Intensive Care Unit and maternity services 
  • a much-needed Emergency Department 
  • more operating theatres and endoscopy suites 
  • increased clinical capability for more complex care to be delivered locally.
