June 3, 2021 / Healthcare Property

Situated in Australia’s most significant future economic corridor, The Quarter is a leading centre for Health and Education, committed to excellence in health care, medical research and world-class education in Western Sydney. Spanning 400 hectares between Penrith and St Marys, The Quarter is synonymous with innovative thinking, collaboration and economic growth.

The Somerset Specialist Centre, a Barwon Institutional Healthcare Property Fund asset, resides within The Quarter immediately adjacent to the Nepean Public Hospital, and provides leading medical accommodation to specialists and allied healthcare practitioners. The facility is anchored by cancer care provider GenesisCare, private hospital operator Cura Day Hospital Group, and medical imaging and radiology provider QScan.

The Quarter has been recognised as part of the Penrith Collaboration Area by the Greater Sydney Commission. Collaboration Areas have been established to achieve a whole of government approach to managing places with great potential. Most of the nominated Collaboration Areas include at least one major hospital and a university, which together have the potential to enhance economic outputs and generate a range of quality jobs.

Barwon is very proud to be playing a part in delivering improved health outcomes to the residents of the Nepean region and beyond, whilst also contributing to job creation and economic prosperity in the region.
