Project Summary

 

The NSW Government has announced a partnership that will see UNSW Sydney make an initial investment of up to $250 million in a Health Translation Hub on the Randwick Hospitals Campus.

Bringing together educational and medical researchers, clinicians, educators, industry partners and public health officials to drive excellence, and support the rapid translation of research, innovation and education into improved patient care, delivering better health outcomes to the community. 

The NSW Government is partnering with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) to strengthen the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct through the integration of additional health education, training, and research with acute healthcare services - directly benefiting patients, carers, and the wider NSW community.  

Building on over 60 years of teaching hospital affiliations, this partnership will help grow the relationship between UNSW and the Randwick Hospitals Campus, its research institutes and broader health partners.
The HTH will enable a seamless physical and working integration between the hospitals and UNSW, positioning the wider precinct at the forefront of international health research and education.

Located on the corner of High Street and Botany Street, Randwick and providing opportunities for collaboration, the HTH will include new ambulatory care clinics in a range of fields, including neurosciences, public and population health. These clinics will provide an important service and improved outcomes for the patient and their families and carers, promote clinical research, and provide excellent opportunities for training.
