Our Centenary Year

On 25 March 1922 the Newcastle Mater Misericordiae Hospital, now known as Calvary Mater Newcastle, was officially opened.

The Mater has a long and proud history of being at the heart of the community for 100 years. While the people may have changed, our values have continued to guide and inform our ongoing commitment to serve the people of the region through the expertise and compassion of our staff.

From humble beginnings the Mater has flourished in the Hunter community. It is much loved – many were born here and in turn many have died here. It is a place of significance that we hold with care.

Our Centenary year gives us time to reflect on all that the hospital has achieved and that of those who have gone before us.
