Mater Private Hospital, Rocklands Road, Crows Nest
The Mater Hospital is a facility of St Vincents and Mater Health. It is the largest joint replacement hospital in the southern hemisphere, with approximately 1500 joint replacement operations taking place at the hospital each year. Naturally, the physiotherapists and nursing staff are particularly familiar with this type of surgery and can really make a difference to patients in the early weeks following their recovery. After discharge from the hospital, The Mater Hospital offers a very successful out-patient rehabilitation service whereby patients are able to go home and attend rehabilitation and therapy each day.
The Mater Hospital is situated in Rocklands Road in Crows Nest. It is a not-for-profit private hospital surrounded by lovely gardens. There is a pharmacy and café in hospital. Parking is available for visitors at a cost of $7.00, although at peak times when the carpark is very busy, it may be necessary to find parking on the street. The hospital is only 10 minutes from the city and can be conveniently accessed by car or by buses which run along the Pacific Highway.
Dr Bernard Zicat, Dr WK Walter and Dr WL Walter all operate on private patients at the Mater Hospital.
