Mater Florist first opened in 1998, when Mater Health Services purchased two small florist businesses and merged them to generate funds for medical research and equipment. The first expansion was in 2002 when the business relocated to premises on the ground floor of the Mater Children’s Hospital, South Brisbane. In 2004, we expanded again to create additional space for production and retail displays. The florist has now further expanded to offer range of gifts, baby products and flowers through each of Mater's Cafes across the South Brisbane campus.
Mater Florist was owned and operated by Mater Misericordiae Health Services Brisbane Limited until February 2017, it is now run by Zouki Group a company that specializes in providing retails services to hospitals across Australia.
Our high quality floral work, personalised customer service and business development has been recognised through winning a Business Achievers Award in 2006 and as a finalist in 2007.

Our florists work closely with our customer service team to ensure that customer feedback is taken on board and used to improve our service from the procuring of the flowers to the delivery.
