Established to support the healthcare needs of the Brisbane community in 1911, the original hospital was replaced in 1981 and now features a 24 hour adult emergency department, intensive and coronary care, day surgery, day oncology and day respite, as well as busy medical, cancer and surgical units.
From our South Brisbane location, we work closely with Mater Health's community outreach services to help Australians make better choices about their health, every day. From inpatient and day-only patient services to outpatient and specialist clinics, we've earned a reputation for innovative programs and compassionate care.
Our services include respiratory medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, cardiology, infectious diseases, dermatology, rheumatology, general surgery and medicine.
Our Brisbane-based team of specialists are recognised for their surgical expertise in women’s health, orthopaedics, urology, ophthalmology, vascular surgery, oral and faciomaxillary surgery, colorectal surgery, plastic surgery, ear, nose and throat surgery and dermatology.
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.
