On 21 November 2018, Mater launched a new chapter to our story to reposition Mater as a group incorporating health, education and research for a healthy community.
From this date new branding started to be rolled out across Mater Group, with the first key signage at the top of Mater Mothers’ Hospital being revealed.
Mater’s new brand is an important visual prompt for our community, highlighting that Mater has changed.
Founded by the Sisters of Mercy more than a century ago, Mater has become an icon of compassion and mercy throughout Queensland and Australia.
Over that time Mater has also become more than a hospital, or a group of hospitals. Mater has grown its capability and is an emerging leader in health education, and accomplished researchers and collaborators while continuing its proud history of philanthropy and fundraising.
The launch of its new branding marked an exciting step forward for Mater in line with its new strategic direction of integrating Mater Health, Mater Education, Mater Research and Mater Foundation to improve the health of our community.
Mater would like to acknowledge Helen Gregory, author of Expressions of Mercy. Mater has used information, as appropriate, from this publication to support the creation of this content.
