Welcome to the Dryden Regional Health Centre
The Dryden Regional Health Centre is a fully modern 41 bed acute care hospital. There are thirty-one acute and ten chronic/rehab beds in the hospital. DRHC provides a full range of inpatient services including medical, surgical, obstetrical, chronic care and critical care.
Ambulatory services include emergency, surgical day care, specialty clinics, oncology, nurse practitioner and ambulance services. Diagnostic services include a 64 slice CT Scan, x-ray, ultrasound, laboratory mammography and cardiac stress testing.
The Health Centre is also home to physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, dietary services, as well as counselling services for; alcohol, case management, diabetes, gambling, youth addiction and sexual assault.
Many of the physicians in Dryden provide obstetrical services. Dryden is part of a network of rural general surgeons providing full surgical service on a twenty-four hour basis. Two local GPs provide anaesthetic services.
Dryden Regional Health Centre values the feedback and suggestions of its patients, their family members, and caregivers. As such the organization is collaborating with our patients on a Patient and Family Advisory Committee to include the voice of patients and their families and /or caregivers in programs, services, and plans for the future in order to enhance the patient experience.
Please Note: The DRHC facilities and grounds are 100% smoke free as of January 4, 2017.
Click on the video below as we say farewell to our third year NOSM students Virginia, Lauren and Krista. They’ve made the DRHC home for the past 8 months and they are moving on to the next phase of their medical training. These are three bright young minds going places and we knew them when; all the best ladies!
