Waikato District Health Board

Waikato District Health Board (DHB) is one of 20 district health boards in New Zealand.  District health boards are responsible for providing or funding the provision of health services in their district.

Waikato DHB serves a population of more than 425,000 and covers more than 21,000km2. It stretches from northern Coromandel to close to Mt Ruapehu in the south, and from Raglan on the west coast to Waihi on the east. 

59% of our population is defined as living in urban areas, and 41% in rural areas.

23% of our population is Māori (compared to the national average of 16%).

The principal iwi (Māori tribal groups) in the Waikato DHB district are Hauraki, Ngāti Maniapoto, Ngāti Raukawa, and Waikato. Ngāti Tūwharetoa and Whanganui iwi groups also reside within the district, and a significant number of Māori living here affiliate to iwi outside the district.

There are 10 territorial local authorities within Waikato DHB boundaries – Hamilton City, Hauraki, Matamata-Piako, Otorohanga, (part of) Ruapehu, South Waikato, Thames-Coromandel, Waikato, Waipa, and Waitomo.

The board and executive offices of Waikato DHB are located in Hamilton city on the Waiora Waikato Hospital Campus.
