The Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital was founded in 1838, when three doctors were appointed to look after just one ward of twelve beds. In July 2006, having outgrown its site on Stoney Stanton Road, all staff and services of the hospital were relocated to the new University Hospital at Walsgrave.
In 2006, historians from Warwick University curated an exhibition displaying objects salvaged from the hospital site with the personal stories of former staff and patients. 10 years later, we have put these objects on display once more in a corridor next to outpatients at the new hospital. These will be displayed from April until Autumn 2016, so do pop over and have a look! Also if you have any memories of the old or new hospitals in this area, we would love to hear them.
