28 Nov 2017
The Sydney Business Chamber, Western Sydney says the $9.3 million teaching and learning centre at Westmead is a welcome investment in Australia’s largest health services precinct.
David Borger, Director of the Sydney Business Chamber, Western Sydney, said, “The collaboration between the University of Sydney, Western Sydney Local Health District, Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and the $1 billion Westmead Redevelopment project will create a space for great minds to come together.
“This builds on Westmead’s importance to deliver the next generation of knowledge jobs and is an important first step for the University of Sydney’s establishment of an expanded campus within the precinct.
“The state-of-the-art education centre will offer Western Sydney students greater access to attend one of Australia’s leading universities and will create creative learning and employment opportunities.
“Westmead continues to attract investment from major players in the education, research and the healthcare industries,” he said.
Mr Borger said research undertaken by the Sydney Business Chamber showed that health precincts had the ability to generate thousands of jobs.
“Our research has shown that Westmead could generate up to 50,000 jobs in the next 20 years so this investment is a positive mark on the health precinct.”
