Randwick Health and Education Precinct
The NSW Government is investing in the Randwick Health and Education Precinct to create one of Australia’s leading centres for health and wellbeing, committed to the integration of health, research, education and teaching to drive innovation, and become an economic powerhouse for Sydney.
The expanded campus will physically connect the hospital to the University of New South Wales, integrating health services with research and teaching facilities. The Precinct will attract the best talent from an increasingly global talent pool, seeing the concentration of clinical, scientific and academic minds become one of the largest in Australia.

Benefits of health, education and research in a single setting
Locating clinical care, research and education in an integrated single setting will have a number of benefits, including a rapid translation of research results directly to bedside care. This allows researchers to understand the current clinical problems that patients are presenting with. This shared interaction allows researchers to undertake studies that are immediately relevant in the real world, with the results of these studies available to the treating clinicians without delay. The Precinct will move toward a more personalised, holistic approach to healthcare supported by community based services that promote patient participation, early detection of illness and maintenance of good health to prevent illness.
