It takes about 80 steps to walk through 129 years of history at Waikato Hospital.

That’s a journey of about 45 seconds, from start to finish.

Time travellers with a fondness for ambling will take considerably longer.

The Waikato Hospital timeline has proved a popular attraction since its installation along 60 metres of wall space inside the Meade Clinical Centre.

Three years on from the timeline’s unveiling, its contents have been replicated in book form.
Entitled Waikato Hospital: Our Hospital, Your History, the hardcover book details the hospital’s transformation from a five-roomed kauri farmhouse to a tertiary hospital campus.

* Waikato Hospital: Our Hospital, Your History retails for $50. Copies are available at the Waikato Hospital library, Waikato Museum, and Age Concern (30 Victoria Street, Hamilton).
