The Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Health Minister Brad Hazzard opened the $114 million Bright Alliance building, a world-class health care and medical research facility at the Randwick Hospitals Campus.

The Bright Alliance building gives purpose-built space to Prince of Wales Hospital’s Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre ("NCCC"), UNSW Scientia Clinical Research and an expansion of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, including an Australian-first outpatient service for adolescents and young adults.

Associate Professor Boon Chua, Director of Cancer and Haematology Services at Prince of Wales Hospital and UNSW Professor of Medicine, said patients would have access to compassionate and research-driven cancer care.


The Bright Alliance building consists of ten floors:

  • Levels 0-4 is the NCCC, where patients attend for cancer & blood disorder treatment and to participate in clinical trials.
  • Levels 5 & 6 accommodates Scientia Clinical Research, the first publicly-funded, purpose-built early-phase clinical trials centre in New South Wales. While prioritising early-phase trials, the facility will also support later-phase trials across a broad range of disciplines.
  • Levels 7-9 is run by Sydney Children’s Hospital Network – for research and paediatric clinics.

The Bright Alliance aspires to accelerate the delivery of world class research to patients in a major public hospital. Patients will have greater, faster, more equitable access to treatments and new drug trials. Creating the conduit between Australian and global researchers, and enhanced by greater technological capability, The Bright Alliance promises better clinical care in a publicly accessible hospital setting.

Powered by a partnership between the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, Prince of Wales Hospital and UNSW Sydney (the University of New South Wales), the Bright Alliance is located at the Prince of Wales hospital, Avoca Street Randwick and draws on the proximity, collaboration and global connectivity of its member institutions.
