Precinct Partners

Herston Health Precinct is greater than the sum of its parts.

What makes us extraordinary is the way our people collaborate and deliver excellence in health for the greater good.

We are united by a common goal to deliver excellence in health outcomes and work together on next-generation advances in the prevention, detection and treatment of some of the world’s most challenging health issues.

We are a community with global connections and bring together scientific and clinical expertise, distinguished education, training and research, and global leaders in health innovation.

That is why we attract the best minds in clinical practice and research, and retain the best talent.

Herston Health Precinct embraces a spirit of collaboration across the disciplines of clinical care, research and education.

Our Precinct consists of innovative and leading facilities, organisations and people, coming together to improve people’s health and wellbeing.

Four founding partners share a vision and are working together on the future direction of the Precinct. These partners are also proud members of Health Translation Queensland – a collaboration between 11 world-class hospital and health services, research institutes and universities.
