UNSW Health Translation Hub

The UNSW Health Translation Hub (UNSW HTH) will bring 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 and 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 UNSW 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 UNSW 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.

  • Purpose-built spaces for researchers educators and industry partners to work alongside clinicians
  • Education, training and research rooms
  • Clinical schools
  • Ambulatory care clinics
  • Support facilities including retail premises
  • Over 2,500 m2 of publicly accessible open space for staff, students, patients and the community.

Enabling world-class infrastructure and systems across the precinct will help to accelerate testing of new approaches to prevention and treatment of diseases, design and evaluation of novel models of care through clinical research and clinical trials, all inspired by UNSW’s people, resources, and partnerships.

The addition of a new public domain, with 2,500 m2 publicly accessible open space, will help to create a healthy, safe and welcoming place for patients, staff, visitors, community, industry partners who are attracted to learn, research, work and socialise.

The UNSW HTH complements UNSW’s contribution to the Prince of Wales Hospital Integrated Acute Services Building (IASB), where new spaces are being delivered to enable clinical innovation and research, biomedical engineering, and clinical translational research laboratories to be co-located directly alongside clinical staff providing acute healthcare services. The IASB is currently under construction and is anticipated to open in 2022.

The Randwick Health and Innovation Precinct

The Randwick Health and Innovation Precinct is an initiative where UNSW’s teachers, researchers and students can thrive. Students will work side-by-side with researchers on real-life cases and practitioners will be better positioned to answer big research questions and solve significant health problems.

The inspiration is that this shared interaction will allow researchers to undertake studies that are immediately relevant in the real world, with the results of these studies benefitting patients 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.
