Marking a new chapter in Mater’s history

Wednesday 21 November 2018 marked a milestone in Mater’s history: the launch of a new chapter to our story to reposition Mater as a group incorporating health, education and research for a healthy community.

From this date new branding started to be rolled out across Mater Group, with the first key signage at the top of Mater Mothers’ Hospital being revealed.

A new Mater Group website was launched, and our ministry websites and social media profiles were rebranded.

Mater’s new brand is an important visual prompt for our community; it highlights that Mater has changed. 

Founded by the Sisters of Mercy more than a century ago, Mater has become an icon of compassion and mercy throughout Queensland and Australia. During that time, Mater has earned its place in the hearts and minds of many people and has become a much loved part of the community. 

Over that time Mater has also become more than a hospital, or a group of hospitals. We have grown our capability and are now an emerging leader in health education, and accomplished researchers and collaborators, while continuing our proud history of philanthropy and fundraising.

This occasion marked an exciting step forward for Mater in line with our new strategic direction of integrating Mater Health, Mater Education, Mater Research and Mater Foundation to improve the health of our community.
