The South Australian Government and partner organisations are investing more than AU$3.6 billion in state-of-the-art medical and research infrastructure.
A large area of Adelaide's western CBD is evolving into dedicated world-class multidisciplinary health and biotech district, home to:
- the New Royal Adelaide Hospital, one of the largest and most advanced hospitals in the world;
- South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), an iconic building and institution that’s attracting the world’s best and brightest medical researchers;
- the site of the New Women's and Children's Hospital;
- University of Adelaide's Health and Medical Sciences Building;
- University of South Australia's Health Innovation Building; and
- the Flinders University Centre for Transforming Healthcare
Adelaide BioMed City will provide research and education facilities where more than 15,000 people will develop their talents to the fullest in its world-leading research, academic and clinical practice environment.
Located less than five minutes’ drive from Adelaide BioMed City, BioInnovation SA (BioSA), offers business incubation, advice on marketing and business development, and export assistance, to technology companies. BioSA is based in the Thebarton Precinct, collocated with 60 high tech companies. The Precinct is one of the largest clusters of its type in Australia. Since BioSA was established in 2001 the number of bioscience companies operating in South Australia has doubled.
Adelaide BioMed City is symbiotically located adjacent to the recently extended and renovated Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC). ACC is already an unparalleled venue for hosting national and international health and biomedical conventions, conferences and seminars, and future staged developments of the ACC will ensure it can host the largest health and medical conferences in the world.
Adelaide BioMed City is also strategically located next to Adelaide's central rail hub and light-rail line and proximate to the emerging Riverbank entertainment precinct, anchored by the internationally-renowned Adelaide Oval.
