Caring for the Mackay community

Mater Private Hospital Mackay has been providing excellence in clinical and pastoral care to the people of Mackay and surrounds since 1927.

Located on the northern bank of the Pioneer River since 2003, our hospital is a modern 105 bed facility featuring five operating theatres, a fully equipped day surgery unit, and a wide range of specialist clinical services.

In 2014 Mater partnered with James Cook University to open an onsite clinical training facility for local student doctors and nurses. This centre enables medical and nursing students to undertake full-time clinical training in Mackay.

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.
