Gold Coast Health and Medical Industry

The Gold Coast health and medical sector is the Gold Coast’s largest sector, employing over 40,800 highly skilled workers and contributing over $2.2 billion to the local economy.

Investment in the sector continues to grow with over $5 billion recently invested in the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct (GCHKP), Asia-Pacific’s emerging health and knowledge hub. The precinct is home to Gold Coast University Hospital, research and allied medical facilities, as well as Griffith University and the Menzies’s Health Institute. The next stage of the GCHKP development will allow for the relocation and expansion of global enterprises into the Precinct.

The Precinct anchors the city’s health and medical industry and provides a unique innovation cluster to support leading health services, research innovation, world-class education and commercialisation of new products and services.

Across the city, the Gold Coast is home to over 1500 health and medical enterprises, producing over $2.7 billion in local sales and $173 million in exports.

Operating under high Australian standards and locally held intellectual property, Gold Coast businesses are gaining international recognition and demand for quality products and services; from supplements and pharmaceuticals to medical devices and specialist treatments. Alongside our medical industry are a growing number of health and wellbeing products including organic skincare, sun protection and dietary supplements.
