The Vice-Chancellor officially unveiled the University’s latest medical enterprise on Monday, speaking an event on campus to mark the launch of MQ Health.
Combining the Macquarie University Hospital, the Health Sciences Centre and various services and clinics offered by the Faculties of Human Science and Medicine and Health Sciences, MQ brings together the best in clinical care and medical research to provide an integrated service for patients, their families and the community.
“In the past five years we have accelerated our growth substantially, with the foundation of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and the formation of the Health Sciences Centre,” said Professor Dowton. “MQ Health is the result of this hard work. It brings together each of the components that have brought us this into one concept with a very clear, simple mission: to heal, learn, and discover.”
The Vice-Chancellor outlined recent examples of this mission in action, and its importance to the overall mission of the wider University.
“At this University, our uniting purpose is to serve. We serve, and we engage,” he said. “MQ Health is an outstanding example of this in action. We will serve the world by engaging with the people in it and, in this way, we will learn from them and discover new ways to improve that service.”
