The vision for the John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct is to create a world-class health and innovation ecosystem with a genuine devotion to a future of innovation, collaboration and excellence.

The NSW Government’s $835 million investment in the John Hunter Campus includes planning for the establishment of the John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct.  This includes delivering improved connectivity to the Hunter Medical Research Institute and enhancements to road infrastructure on the campus. 

The project actively encourages collaboration with health, education and research partners to create dynamic new opportunities for education, training and employment for staff and the broader community.

The John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct will be a key driver of economic growth and jobs for Newcastle and the broader Hunter Region by generating new employment opportunities, improving liveability and facilitating research.

The Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Plan details the John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct as one of its three growth areas. The Integrated Project Team continues to work on attracting new investment and partnership opportunities through government, universities, research institutes and the private sector.
