Mercy Day Mission Awards recognise those who embody Mater Values
Mater Private Hospital Townsville recognises outstanding commitment to Mercy values
Mater Private Hospital Townsville recently celebrated its cultural heritage with the Mercy Day Mission Awards ceremony, presenting four awards to Mater People who embody the Mater Values.
The Mercy Day Mission Awards are held each year to celebrate Mater’s identity and the heritage of the Sisters of Mercy. The importance of recognising Mercy can be attributed to the Sisters of Mercy Founder, Catherine McAuley who opened the House of Mercy on Baggot Street, Dublin 191 years ago—the beginning of a Mercy tradition that each Mater Person is privileged to continue.

Mater Private Hospital Townsville Director of Mission Alanna Jacoby said the Mercy Day awards are an important acknowledgement of Mater People and their commitment to its Mission and Values – Mercy Spirituality, Compassion, Excellence in Care, Respect and Justice.
“Catherine McAuley, the founder of the Sisters of Mercy, had an incredible vision to deliver exceptional care to all people and flowing from the Sisters of Mercy legacy is a Mater tradition to honour our heritage, our identity, and to recognise the contribution of all Mater People in upholding our Mission and Values,” Ms Jacoby said.
“The Mercy Awards provide an opportunity for Mater People to reflect on the great work that their colleagues do and acknowledge their contribution to delivering exceptional care to patients.”
