A ONE-STOP health centre will officially open at Brookwater today, to meet the needs of the Western Corridor's fast-growing population.

The Mater Health Centre Brookwater, in the Woolworths shopping complex, features a GP, dentist, pathologist, physiotherapist, obstetrician and more.

Services will be showcased today at an open day, and attendees will be offered free health checks.

Mater's involvement in the project was a big win for residents, Springfield Land Corporation (SLC) managing director Raynuha Sinnathamby said.

"We welcome the Mater to be part of this development; having a partner like this is great," Ms Sinnathamby said.

SLC health project manager Simon Fawsett said the arrival of Mater services in Springfield was an important first step towards establishing a health precinct in the greater Springfield area.

Mater Private Hospital executive director Don Murray said the centre was an exciting development.

"Mater private specialists will be consulting from our medical suites to give residents ... access to specialist care covering a number of disciplines including gastroenterology, urology, obstetrics, orthopedics, neurosurgery and plastics and reconstructive surgery," he said.

"Mater is committed to building a healthy community and we anticipate Mater Health Centre Brookwater will be a critical first step toward delivering a long-term integrated health and wellness precinct for the residents of Greater Springfield."

The 2000sq m centre includes Mater Pharmacy, Mater Pathology and other specialty services.

Cr Paul Tully said the centre would benefit the wider region.

"Developments like these will ensure the western corridor continues to grow its reputation as a provider of quality, accessible health care for many years to come," Cr Tully said.

The free open day will run from 10am to 2pm today at the centre, at 2 Tournament Dr.
