Specialist care for children and their families

Founded in 1998, Mater Children’s Private Brisbane was Australia’s first dedicated private paediatric hospital. Since then, we’ve been providing innovative healthcare and emotional support to children and their families throughout South East Queensland and beyond.

We know it can be worrying and overwhelming when your child experiences health issues. At Mater Children’s Private Brisbane, you can feel confident your child will receive dedicated care through your chosen specialist, supported by an experienced and attentive team of expert medical and healthcare professionals.


Our South Brisbane location includes an inpatient ward, surgical and medical day units and Queensland's only dedicated paediatric sleep unit. Through our team of exceptional support staff and outstanding paediatric specialists, we provide short-stay and daysurgical and medical care for privately-insured and self-funded families with children from birth to 16 years of age.

Our purpose-built paediatric facilities provide you and your child with:

  • Private single rooms with ensuite and parents’ day bed
  • Spacious sibling room options
  • Children’s entertainment and play areas
  • Dedicated parent lounge and kitchenette areas
  • Nutritious child-friendly meals

Our concerted pursuit of innovation—to discover, improve, adopt and adapt—differentiates Mater as a leader in the areas of health, education and research. We are committed to providing exceptional care in the community.

Visiting hours

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our patients, all Mater hospitals have placed restrictions on visitors to minimise the exposure risk to COVID-19.

As a result of new restrictions, Mater will immediately limit visitor access to hospitals in South Brisbane, Springfield and Redland.

In line with advice from the Chief Health Officer, Mater will only permit people to visit someone in hospital if they are;

  • the parents, guardians or carers for a patient under the age of 18,
  • providing end-of-life support, and/or
  • a partner and/or support person for a patient admitted for care related to their pregnancy

Further details of the current hospital visitor arrangements for the Greater Brisbane area is available at the Queensland Health website.

It is imperative that Mater support this important community health initiative and all hospital entry points will be staffed to ensure compliance with this measure.

To view our other visiting restrictions, please visit our web page for patients.

Mater will aim to resume normal visiting arrangements as soon as possible.
