Health Translation Hub


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 clinicians, researchers, educators and public health the hub will drive excellence and the rapid translation of research, innovation and education into patient care at Randwick.

Located on the corner of High Street and Botany Street, the new building will include:
  • Purpose-built spaces for researchers and educators to work alongside clinicians
  • Education, training and research rooms
  • Clinical schools for Women’s and Children’s Health, Psychiatry and Prince of Wales Hospital
  • Ambulatory care clinics and new medical imaging equipment
The Health Translation Hub will open in 2025 and is part of a broader $500 million commitment to the precinct by UNSW over the next decade. This investment complements the NSW Government’s $720 million investment to deliver a new Acute Services Building and strengthen the Randwick Health and Education Precinct.

UNSW and Randwick Hospitals

UNSW has had teaching hospital affiliations with Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick and the Royal Hospital for Women for nearly 60 years.

As well as improving health services to our local communities, the seamless physical and working integration between the hospitals and UNSW will enable the Randwick Health and Education Precinct to compete at the forefront of health research and education internationally.

Research improves patient outcomes

By embedding research into the clinical environment and strengthening links with clinicians and researchers, patients receive better treatment outcomes. Research also enhances the education experience for the next generation of healthcare professionals.

Ambulatory care clinics

The new building 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.
