Health Translation Hub delivers new future
The future looks brighter for sick and injured kids, thanks to a $250 million partnership between the Randwick Hospitals Campus and UNSW Sydney.
Recently announced by the NSW Government, a new Health Translation Hub will be built on the corner of Botany Street and High Street, Randwick. Set to open in 2025, 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 new ‘Hub’ will see UNSW Sydney invest in an integrated health precinct, delivering better health outcomes to the community and meeting the challenges of our growing and ageing population head-on.
Global trends in medicine indicate the future lies in translational medicine—where close relationships are forged between laboratory research and clinical trials, providing patients and families with access to new medicines, biomedical devices, and carefully coordinated approaches to care.
The new Health Translation Hub will deliver these translational medicine benefits to the Randwick health precinct. It means that we can create better physical proximity between researchers and patients, build education and research spaces for staff and students, and connect families and patients with small agile work teams to deliver better health outcomes.
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, and is part of a broader $500 million commitment by UNSW to the Precinct over the next decade.
