Foetal Monitoring System
The Mater Hospital is one of only six hospitals in Australia with a central foetal monitoring system in their Delivery Suite. Providing quick and easy real-time access to the CTG and related maternity information during labour, the system links together delivery rooms and foetal monitoring activity.
Digital Operating Rooms
In January 2011 a further two operating rooms were enhanced with digital facilities, which means the Mater now has five integrated digital suites for minimally invasive procedures.
One of a select number of Australian hospitals to offer laser technology, two new lasers were recently installed:

Computerised Navigation Systems
The Mater’s computerised navigation systems guide surgical techniques in a number of operative procedures:
- Orthopaedic procedures
