Health and education campus

The project includes master planning for additional health, education and training, and research facilities necessary to support the Tweed Valley Hospital, which will be developed with service partners over time.

Master planning for the site has confirmed that it provides significant opportunities to develop complementary health-related uses that, over time, will deliver a state-of-the-art health and education campus.

This is supported by the site’s location opposite TAFE NSW Kingscliff Campus, which brings the opportunity to strengthen partnerships between Health and TAFE and synergies with developing health-related training and education.

Tweed Valley Skills Centre

The Tweed Valley Skills Centre is a joint initiative between TAFE NSW, Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) and Health Infrastructure. The Tweed Valley Skills Centre will provide education, training, and employment opportunities for the local community and ensure that the benefits of the new hospital extend beyond the delivery of new hospital buildings.

Health Infrastructure will construct a prototype suite that mirrors the specifications of the state-of-the-art hospital. The suite will include the detailed design of key clinical spaces and provide an ideal learning space for the health workforce.

In the longer term it will be used for clinical simulation as part of health education programs led by TAFE NSW, working in partnership with NNSWLHD and future Precinct partners.

The partnership between TAFE NSW, NNSWLHD, and Health Infrastructure will also extend to delivering a Skills and Employment Hub to enhance training, education and employment outcomes linked to the project.
