The Mater


From 11 March, Mater Hospital is increasing its precautionary measures aimed at minimising the risk to patients, visitors and staff with regard to COVID-19. Our measures are in line with Australian Government advice.

We are therefore cancelling all Maternity Tours and all Maternity Visitors (except partners) until further notice.

Only a partner is permitted to stay and we recommend that partners stay with the mother and not leave the hospital. We understand that this might not always be possible, however it will help reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. We are offering free meals to all partners who choose to stay.

If you have any further specific questions in relation to COVID-19 visit the NSW Health webpage.
