Mater Health Services is meeting the growing healthcare needs of the Greater Springfield community through the Mater Private Hospital Springfield (MPHS).
Stage One of MPHS is an 80-bed, $85 million hospital providing a range of medical and surgical services as well as a combination of inpatient, day and chemotherapy beds to be supported by $21.4 million in Australian Government funding for a cancer care centre.
The 10,000 m2 facility includes four operating theatres, inpatient wards, a day surgery unit and medical imaging services. The cancer care centre, initially with one linear accelerator and 15 medical oncology treatment bays, will be further developed in an alliance between Mater and Radiation Oncology Queensland.
Mater Health Services has entered into an agreement with West Moreton-Oxley and Metro South Hospital and Health Services to provide treatment and care to 4800 uninsured patients at the hospital each year, in addition to locally insured patients.
Mater has a master plan for the hospital precinct within Health City Springfield Central, which incorporates a number of expansion stages which will be rolled out to meet the demands of the region. MPHS will offer an innovative, unique and contemporary model of holistic care and will provide patients exceptional acute and sub-acute treatment and care, while also promoting wellness and illness prevention.
