A Doctor from the Mater performs a lab experiment

Friends of the Mater Foundation

In line with the Mater Hospital's proud history of fundraising, The Friends of the Mater Foundation was launched in June 1999 to help ensure the hospitals survival as a non-profit, charitable organisation.

We continue to support The Friends of the Mater Foundation in the form of donations which have allowed the hospital to acquire various pieces of medical equipment including an Argon-Plasma Coagulation Unit (APC) and Electrosurgical Generator for the Hospital which has enabled them to provide an even higher standard of care to their patients than was otherwise possible.

We have committed to a substantial five year pledge to 'Friends of the Mater' foundation with funds going towards building works, medical research and scholarships, the establishment of new programs within the hospital and the upgrading of medical facilities.
