The hospital was first opened in 1911 by the Sisters of Mercy in order to provide facilities for the sick, needy and poor inkeeping with their ethics of compassionate care. It is jointly funded by Queensland health grants and Mater private hospitals. In 1982 the original building was replaced by the current building which is one of the most modern adult public hospitals in Brisbane.
As a leading hospital in the National Demonstration Hospitals Programme, Mater Adult Hospital has a reputation for initiating innovative programmes to improve patient care management. There is a strong partnership with a number of universities and the hospital is a teaching facility of the University of Queensland. It has formal university departments in medicine, surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology as well as joint university appointments across a range of clinical disciplines. Applications for electives should be made through the University of Queensland at least three month, and no more than eight months, in advance.
