The Westmead precinct is one of the largest health, education, research and training precincts in Australia and a key provider of jobs for the greater Parramatta and western Sydney region.
More than $3 billion has been committed by government, universities and the private sector to upgrade and expand the precinct’s health services, education and medical research facilities over the coming years.
Spanning 75 hectares, the Westmead precinct comprises over 400,000m2 of high-end health-related developments, including four major hospitals, three world-leading medical research institutes, two university campuses and the largest research intensive pathology service in NSW.
Westmead has been identified by the NSW Government as a State Significant Development site due to the size, economic value and importance to Parramatta and Western Sydney.
By 2036 the number of full-time staff working across Westmead will increase to more than 30,000 and the number of students will expand to more than 10,000.
