Mater Dei Hospital Malta

Mater Dei Malta.After much controversy, delays and overspending, Mater Dei hospital finally replaced the old and dodgy St. Luke’s hospital in June 2007 with the last of the personnel having migrated by November of the same year. The cost of the project had been initially predicted to be around 116m Euro, however the end cost reached over half a billion Euro in total.

Malta’s health care is provided for free (well not exactly for free, just from the tax payers money) by the state and over 80% of the Maltese population makes use of it.

Mater Dei is the main and largest hospital offered by the state. Its location right next to the University of Malta (which is also state run), aids in the fact that it is also the main teaching hospital on the island. Mater Dei hospital is spread over 250,000 sqm with a total of 7,156 rooms of which 6,700 are equipped with state of the art medical equipment. This includes 25 operating theatres and 906 patient beds.

Every patient in Mater Dei hospital has access to TV, Internet, radio and telephone from their own bed at a minor cost. Other facilities include a nurse call system (which is similar to an intercom system), and a CPR button, which is directly linked by a pager to the cardio-pulmonary resuscitation team.

Environmental considerations were taken in the planning and the construction of the hospital. Mater Dei hospital is in fact the first building in Malta with insulated external walls and high performance glass fitted into the windows. This reduces cooling costs during the summer months and heating costs during the winter months.

Other environmental considerations taken into consideration include; the collection of rainwater for irrigation, low flush toilets, recycling, the use of environmentally friendly refrigerants and many others.

    I’d like to find out if there are short term rental flats near the hospital. I am coming from Canada and would like to find a small flat with shower, bed, kitchenette, laundry. My elderly father is in the hospital and we are not sure for how long.

    Hey all, I’m a care worker working in hospital. First of all would like to thank for giving me this kind of opportunity! In Mater Dei there is St Luke’s staff and brand new ones, as every single year nurses & other staff are qualified! There is still need to improve in the emergency, but in the whole the hospital is much better than St Luke. It’s more clean, great food, great staff and many other positive things you can think of. Thanks once again for your comments!
