Mater Health welcomes new Executive Director for South-East Queensland

10/Sep/2020     Health

In early August, Mater Health welcomed Linda Patat as Regional Executive Director for South-East Queensland to form part of the new leadership team.  The team will lead the organisation through a new era in healthcare, following Mater joining forces across Central, North and South-East Queensland in July to become Queensland’s largest Catholic not-for-profit healthcare provider.

Tasked with overseeing Mater Health in South Brisbane, Springfield and Redland, as a member of the Mater Health leadership team, Ms Patat will work alongside her peers across the regions to connect all sites and services under Mater’s joint state-wide Mission.

Ms Patat joins Mater from her previous role as Health Service Chief Executive at South West Hospital and Health Service where she worked to deliver healthcare to address the challenges of rural and remote communities, bringing a wealth of experience in clinical and operational healthcare, stemming from a background in nursing.

“I have come from working across diverse clinical environments where you really get to know the strengths of teams and key partners around you, and I am looking forward to getting to know Mater People to create those same trusted working relationships,” Ms Patat said.

“Transitioning to this role covering South-East Queensland, I am excited to work through the many opportunities, and to connect as part of the newly-formed state-wide Mater vision.”

With a passion for values-based leadership and truly person-centred care, Ms Patat said she was looking forward to seeing this translate across all Mater ministries.

“As we step into this new era of healthcare with innovative models of care outside of hospital walls, and new ways of delivering value-based care, I am looking forward to seeing Mater’s reputation for excellence in care integrate and work together with Research, Education, and Foundation.”

“I believe in the importance of a network of people to collaborate on ideas and to find innovative ways of doing things. In this new role, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with so many committed and dedicated teams across Mater’s wide span of services, and to see our Mission deliver on our vision for the future, together.”
