— Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Stirling

ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA, June 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Flinders Village, a transformational $1.5 billion development at Flinders University’s Bedford Park campus will create the biggest integrated health and education precinct in South Australia, adding economic value to the state and the nation.

Adjacent to the new Flinders Station, the development will feature student accommodation, an advanced Health Research facility, transitional health accommodation, a hotel, and amenities such as retail facilities, benefitting students, staff and the community.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Stirling says Flinders Village will energise southern Adelaide, unlock significant research and educational opportunities and be a catalyst for economic growth and jobs.

“Flinders Village is a key part of Flinders’ overarching plan for growth and development. It will complement the University’s existing investments in the Tonsley Innovation District, support the Flinders health precinct and leverage the $125 million investment by the federal and state Government in the Flinders Link rail extension that will connect our campus with the Adelaide CBD.

“The University plans to leverage the investment in the train connection to attract private capital for the development of Flinders Village in ways that will grow the University and unlock the enormous potential of southern Adelaide” he says.

The first stage of the project will be a Health Research building with a focus on mental health, infectious disease and personalised health delivery. In parallel , we plan to increase the number of student residential spaces to accommodate the growing numbers of regional and international students choosing to live on campus.

Professor Stirling says the University will now enter an exciting phase where vision will become reality.

“Flinders University has a pivotal role in South Australia’s growth and development, attracting international students, supporting talented researchers and creating a dynamic, innovation-focused community.

“In addition to furthering health services and research, our new urban centre with accommodation and retail amenities will benefit our Bedford Park and Tonsley campuses, the adjacent hospitals and surrounding suburbs.

“We will run an open process to identify development partners and future tenants, and work with our communities to create a vibrant urban environment which meets their needs now and into the future. Flinders has a strong focus on sustainability, and designers will be challenged to incorporate world’s best practice thinking into their proposals.

“Flinders has a proud history as a pioneer in integrated health – ours is the first medical school in the nation to be integrated into a public hospital. We’re at the core of a health and education precinct that includes the state’s busiest hospital, educates the majority of the state’s medical workforce and contributes a substantial proportion of the State’s biomedical research.

“Knowledge is the key to creating a better world. Flinders Village is an investment in knowledge – making a difference in the education we deliver, the research we pursue and in our support for our community” Professor Stirling says.


Independent analysis commissioned by Flinders University indicates the development’s potential to:
• Deliver a $1.5 billion development which brings additional economic value to Adelaide’s south and SA
• Bring 5,000 additional international students to Adelaide
• Improve student accommodation and provide an additional 3,000 student beds
• Increase annual education exports by $99 million and generate in excess of $150 million in additional annual overall export earnings for South Australia
• Create 10,000+ construction ‘job years’ during the development phase
• The project will deliver
o State-of-the-art research facilities and teaching simulation spaces
o Affordable, safe, high quality student accommodation on campus
o Transition healthcare accommodation for patients from rural and regional areas and their families visiting the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders Private Hospital
o Retail amenities and related infrastructure for a growing population of staff and students and for the local community
o Hotel accommodation to support visitation to southern Adelaide
o Facilities for use by the University and local residents for community and sporting activities
o Additional car parking infrastructure to service Flinders Village
o Additional open spaces and sustainable design
In addition to its own investments the University will invite public and private partners to develop Flinders Village and its research, education and employment precincts.

The University will work with its partners, the hospitals and government to integrate the new rail line and other public transport, existing and emerging, into the future development.

Time line

• Expressions of interest from developers will be sought for the health and medical research building, student accommodation, and Village and public realm by the end of the year
• Aligned milestones: Darlington upgrade completion in 2020, Flinders Link rail construction complete 2020
• The Health Research building will be shovel ready in late 2020 and built during 2021-22
• An interim “pop up” village will be established at the rail station in 2021
• Construction of student accommodation to occur in stages from 2021
• Construction of Flinders Village to commence in 2021
• Transitional accommodation, hotel facilities and retail will be progressively completed between 2022 and circa 2030

Any plastic surgery should be considered carefully. If you are thinking about it, read the new article by Dr. Tansar Mir, with reasons to get it done, or not.

Tansar Mir, MD – Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (N/A:N/A)

Plastic surgery is one of those procedures that can have a major impact on a person’s life. However, it is good to consider the pros and cons of any procedure before opting to go under the knife”

— Dr. Tansar Mir, Plastic Surgeon in New York

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — We live in an age where most of us have thought of getting a cosmetic procedure done at least once. As appealing as it may sound, and judging by its continually increasing popularity, one may get inspired to finally get that nose job done, or get those lips looking plumper. However, like everything else, plastic surgery has its pros and cons, and these pros and cons are something that people need to know before they decide to have cosmetic work done on their bodies.

Read the new information article on this subject by Tansar Mir, MD, available on his blog at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

Before we discuss anything any further, however, it is important first to understand what plastic surgery actually is. Plastic surgery is any reconstructive procedure of the bone, muscle, tissue, or skin that is usually performed to enhance function. It can also be done to improve or complement certain features of a person’s body. Reconstructive procedures that are most popular these days are scar repair, tumor removal, and breast reduction and cosmetic surgery.

Moving on, let’s weigh up the advantages and disadvantages that these procedures bring to the table.

The Pros and Cons

1. Time Matters

What the majority of people worry about the most is the time it all takes. We are talking about the time that will be invested from the beginning – from the very start to the amount of time it will take to heal. While most procedures take no longer than a couple of hours, the amount of time that actually goes into the planning, consideration, strategy, and recovery is far more than what the surgery itself takes to be performed. The fact is that cosmetic surgery is a long, time-consuming process. Out of all the aforementioned steps, it is the recovery phase that takes the longest. Once the surgery has been performed, you still have to keep on coming back in for regular checkups to monitor how you are healing. Therefore, if you are someone who is very busy and cannot invest long hours of his or her day, you might want to reconsider this.

Most people who consider getting reconstructive work done opt for non-surgical procedures over it because of the time aspect. It can be particularly difficult for patients with families, demanding careers, and busy schedules to dedicate days, and at times, even weeks for recovering after a surgical procedure.

However, the recovery time, even though not avoidable completely, can be minimized to an extent. It can be negotiated to better suit the needs and schedule of the patient. Using vacation days or holidays and avoiding getting a procedure done in busy seasons can help incorporate the patient’s recovery into their packed schedules.

2. Breaking the Bank

The finances are another important aspect of plastic surgery. The cost of a procedure heavily depends on the type of surgery being performed. For instance, bone and muscle reconstruction is pricier than getting lip fillers. What can be ascertained, however, is that all these procedures definitely cost quite a bit.

It is worth noting here that going to less popular practices or surgeons without licenses will not actually save you money. Most of the times procedures carried out by unlicensed practitioners cost much more in corrective surgeries than what they would have initially if an expert did them.

3. Regaining Self –Confidence

Most people get plastic surgery done simply because they don’t like the way they look or aren’t confident in their bodies. With rhinoplasty and lip fillers being the most sought-after procedures, it has been stated by numerous patients that they just want their features to look better. Plastic surgery has definitely shown to boost a person’s self-confidence.

4. Will It Last?

One of the most frequently asked questions is if these procedures last and if they do, for how long. Now, what needs to be understood here is that the lasting time differs for each procedure. Some are permanent, some are semi-permanent, and others do not last longer than a few months. It really just depends on the procedure and the material being used. What needs to be considered here is whether the amount of time and money that you invest in opting to have these procedures done is worth the end product. If so, then go for it!

Plastic surgery is one of those procedures that can have a major impact on a person’s life. From helping them feel good in their own skin to improving their confidence, it can be a real game changer for people. However, it is always good to consider the pros and cons of any procedure before opting to go under the knife. We hope we have helped you in your decision-making process with regards to whether you get that surgery done or not.
