About Mater

Mater is an extensive network of hospitals, health centres and related businesses, a nationally accredited education provider and a world-class research institute, we're working together to improve health outcomes for the community.

Mater brings together our collective expertise and resources across Mater Health, Mater Education, Mater Research and Mater Foundation.

For over six decades, Mater Mothers' Hospitals has been a steadfast pillar in supporting growing families across Queensland.

Our evolution encompasses every step of the journey—from preconception to early parenthood. At the core of Mater's mission is the unwavering commitment to providing world-class care, especially when mothers find themselves at their most vulnerable during pregnancy and birthing.

Every newborn welcomed into the world at a Mater Mothers' hospital is affectionately known as a little miracle. Yet, some infants require intensive, round-the-clock specialist care.

Over 2,000 very ill and premature babies find sanctuary in Mater's embrace every year. As a leader in neonatal critical care, Mater's integrated services span from pre-pregnancy to the first 1,000 days of a baby's life. Mater stands as the sole team in Australia performing regular open foetal spinal surgery—a testament to our pioneering spirit and commitment to pushing the boundaries of medical excellence.
