Health and Social Services

The Town of Wynyard has various health and social services available. We have a hospital, medical clinic/health centre, paramedical services, emergency medical service, dental centre, long-term facilities, pharmacy, among others. Mental health practitioners and social services come to Town at least once a month.  

Health Services


Wynyard Hospital is an integrated facility that supports acute, respite, and long-term care. The hospital has 8 beds inside the integrated facility and 57 beds and 2 respite beds in long term care. The hospital has a staff of approximately 100 employees and houses x-ray and lab facilities. Approximately 15 registered nurses work at the hospital and nursing home.

Wynyard’s existing health facilities could accommodate population growth if funding were provided by the provincial government. Currently funding comes from the ministry of health. Doctors are incorporated and are not on salary; overhead charges for each doctor are used to fund the clinic. Funding for doctors would be lacking if not for the ministry of health funding. The clinic would run a deficit if it were not funded by the provincial government. 

Medical Clinics or Health Centers

Wynyard Clinic is by appointment only. The clinic has five doctors and one nurse practitioner.

The community clinic has had some success in recruiting and retaining doctors and nurses despite there not being an official local doctor / nurse recruitment and retention program. The Saskatchewan Health Authority is responsible for all nurses. 

Paramedical Services

Paramedical services in Wynyard include a chiropractor, a physiotherapist, massage therapists, and optometrists.

Mental Health

There are no fulltime mental health providers in Wynyard. Most of mental health services are provided by professionals coming into the community once a month, or by residents traveling to other centres to access this service. More information about services and programs on mental health are found on Partners Family Services.
