At The Linden Medical Centre, our focus is on quality and being able to maintain the agility needed, to continue to provide research-supported new treatments to our patients.
Dr. Monika Hooper, Psychiatrist
Dr. Hooper was born in Saskatoon, but studied linguistics at UBC, and received her medical degree from the University of Alberta in Edmonton. She returned to Saskatoon to complete her psychiatry residency, and began her practice by working with acute care patients at both Saskatoon’s Dube Centre, and the emergency room at The Royal University Hospital. After several years working in acute care, Dr. Hooper co-founded The Linden Medical Centre with the goal of being able to offer modern treatments for psychiatric illness that are difficult to access in Saskatchewan.

Dr. Adam Tancred, Psychiatrist
Adam was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and moved to Canada as a toddler. Even from a young age, he had an avid interest in the human mind and completed a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Alberta in 2002. He was in the army reserves for 6 years and served one tour of duty in Bosnia in 2002/2003. From there he worked at a maximum security detention facility for youth for a few years as a Correctional Service worker before deciding to work towards a medical degree and then a specialization in psychiatry and a further sub-specialization in Forensic Psychiatry. His passions include neurobiology, evolutionary psychiatry and the mind as it operates within a social domain.

Zach Macnab, RN
Zach started his career as a Registered Nurse in 2017 in the Lloydminster Hospital. At the time, he was working on a medical floor with palliative and telemetry specializations. He quickly found he preferred the fast pace of working as a member of the code team as well as building strong relationships with patients while working on the palliative wing. Zach spent the next portion of his career in Saskatoon working in intensive care units. This is where he got his advanced certificate of critical care nursing. After gaining some experience working with more complex patients, Zach decided he was missing the connection side of patient care. He joined the team at The Linden Medical Centre in the summer of 2019, here he enjoys being able to foster a closer connection with patients while being on the cutting edge of mental health treatment.
