Every meal is cooked fresh and delivered within 45 minutes from placing the order.  You can also pre-order a meal and have it delivered at a specified time.

Special diets and visitor meals
We can meet your needs for special meals for medical, religious or cultural reasons. Please notify us of any requirements prior to your admission. Simply write a note on your admission form or speak to the pre-admission coordinator on (02) 9900 7494 to ensure we can meet your needs.

In some circumstances, visitors may order meals for a small charge. Please arrange your order with the nursing staff.
A serene haven for quiet reflection and comfort, the healing garden is open for patients, visitors and staff. The garden is located in the courtyard behind the lifts on the ground floor of the hospital.
The chapel is located near the main hospital entrance. It’s always open for prayer to people of all faiths, or as a place of solitude and reflection.
Pharmacy services at Mater Sydney are proudly provided by Epic Pharmacy. Epic Pharmacy is an Australia-wide company specialising in pharmacy services for private hospitals and oncology centres.
At Mater Sydney, Epic Pharmacy supports all inpatients with their medications and relevant drug advice. This may include providing a list of medications you are taking at discharge to assist your ongoing care.
Epic Pharmacy also provides chemotherapy to the oncology unit. As a hospital inpatient, Mater Sydney will share your Medicare and concession card details with Epic to facilitate the dispensing of your medication.
Where possible, current medications should be brought into hospital with you. It is important to note that some medications given during your stay may not be covered by your health fund, and Epic Pharmacy may send you an account at the end of the calendar month. This can be paid via BPAY or credit card. This is separate to any accounts that you settle with the hospital reception on discharge.
The pharmacy stocks a wide range of prescription, over-the-counter and natural medicines.
