Summer’s Precinct Post in the frame
SHARE

The latest Precinct Post is in the frame - and ready to read. The summer edition is a perfect example of precinct partnerships bringing the latest technological advancements and project successes to light.

There’s been no shortage of high points over the past few months – from the announcement of a second campus for the University of Sydney to a birthday celebration well worth the wait as Westmead Hospital turned 40.

Both events raised eyebrows and political interest across the state as the precinct again laid claim to the centre for health and education excellence.

Of equal importance is the ongoing work of Westmead’s leading minds in health and science technology. Minds that change lives of everyday Australians every day.

This edition highlights two of these projects – gene therapy for children with life-threatening genetic liver disease and a new treatment for prostate cancer.

Westmead is also making great strides on the ground and in the air with a “topping-out” ceremony marking a significant milestone for the Innovation Centre. The project represents a focal point for collaboration with industry and commercial partners to build on Westmead’s global reputation.

There’s also momentum building in transport as Sydney Metro West and Parramatta Light Rail track their progress for staff, patients, visitors and residents.

And there’s always news around the arts and culture strategy as the Westmead Redevelopment project continues to work with its partners to pave the way for art – and western Sydney artists - to take centre stage.

Tying it all together is retired nurse Claire Simpson, who relives a proud past of caring for sick children and looks positively towards an exciting future with the completion of the new hospital building.
