| There are two hospitals within an hour's drive of Dorion. Nipigon District Memorial Hospital offers the essential health care and ermergency services for residents in the Nipigon district, while the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre offers more extensive health services and larger patient capacity. Also, the Thunder Bay district health unit provides health care promotion services in the Nipigon branch office.
Just recently the Norwest Community Health Centres (NCHC) has started a mobile health unit offering health services to rural communities on a monthly basis. Each month a team of Nurse Practioners travel to Dorion to provide health care for residents. The main purpose of the mobile unit is to get to those patients that may find it difficult to travel to recieve health care due to distance, age and other socio-economic circumstances.
