South East Queensland Values

Together, the five Mater values underpin our relationships with one another, assist us in our decision making, and shape our workplace culture. Our values are reflected in all that we do, and are visible to all through the way in which we behave and interact with one another.

We are dedicated to providing healthcare services through a sincere commitment to our core values of Mercy, Dignity, Care, Commitment and Quality.

Mercy: the spirit of responding to one another

By being merciful we can bring forgiveness, joy, peace, kindness, compassion and hope to all in our care.

Dignity: the spirit of humanity, respecting the worth of each person

Each person we encounter in our working day deserves our respect; patients, visitors and co-workers.

Care: the spirit of compassion

We show that we care for one another by being sensitive to each others' needs and showing kindness.

Commitment: the spirit of integrity

Being committed to those who entrust themselves to us is a responsibility we take seriously.

Quality: the spirit of professionalism

We strive to be leaders in our fields and to combine those skills with humanity and warmth.
