We are an iconic provider of hospital-based healthcare, striving to deliver an exceptional standard of care

We are a nationally accredited, hospital-based Registered Training Organisation - the only one of its kind in Queensland
We are part of a collaborative research institute with The University of Queensland and founding partner of the Translational Research Institute
That's why we've worked hard to champion sustainable thinking and embed it into every layer of our organisation.
At Mater, we take our responsibility very seriously so we've embarked on a wide variety of initiatives to transform the way we manage our social responsibility, our environmental sustainability and mitigate modern slavery. We've also greatly improved our sustainability credentials by making changes in the fields of procurement, facilities design and transport.
As a large organisation, it’s important that we find ways to responsibly manage our consumption of resources and reduce our impact on the environment.
It’s estimated there are some 40 million victims of modern slavery worldwide while the Walk Free Global Slavery Index 2018 says there were 15 000 living in conditions of modern slavery in Australia in 2016.
Mater takes seriously our ethical responsibility to be part of the solution to modern slavery.
We recognise the important role we have to play in the communities we serve and the opportunity we have to commit significant resources into health, education and research whilst also giving back to our community.
