Final plans approved for new Adelaide University Medical and Nursing School

By / 12th of May, 2014

 A new Medical and Nursing School will make the University of Adelaide the largest research presence in South Australia’s Health and Biomedical Precinct.

The new building will be co-located with SAHMRI and the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and will attract nearly 1100 health sciences researchers to Adelaide.

South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill supports the decision to integrate the new school with the State’s primary teaching hospital and research institute.

“This investment from the University of Adelaide is an exciting and important addition to the Biomedical Precinct. The Biomedical Precinct will employ more than 8000 people and attract the world’s leading health and medical corporations,” Mr Weatherill said.

The Medical and Nursing school will be the biggest capital works project in the University of Adelaide’s history with a total cost of $206 million.

Construction of the school is due to commence in June this year and should be completed by March 2017.
