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.

We invite patients, family members, and/or caregivers of patients who have received care at the Dryden Regional Health Centre within the last two years to apply to become a volunteer Patient Advisor.  By sharing their unique experiences and perspectives, Advisors will contribute to making a difference in the care experience.
