The Westmead Health Precinct is Australia’s largest health and biomedical research precinct. It has:
- Four hospitals
- Two universities
- Two medical research institutes
- NSW’s largest pathology service, and
- Many allied health centres.
The Westmead Health Precinct services Western Sydney. It also provides specialised services for the rest of New South Wales. The health sector is expected to grow from 18,000 jobs in 2016 to 50,000 full-time jobs by 2036.
To carefully manage Westmead’s forecasted growth, Western Sydney Local Health District is working with the NSW Government, including NSW Health, and other alliances to realise our vision for Westmead to become a world-class innovation precinct in health and education.
