A Center Dedicated to Wholeness

Drayson Center opened on January 11, 1995, as a 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art recreation and wellness center promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.

Today, Drayson Center serves as the central hub for health and wholeness in Loma Linda and its surrounding communities, promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness through health, fitness, sports, social, and spiritual activities.

Loma Linda University students, full-time Loma Linda University Health employees, and members of their immediate families receive free membership at Drayson Center.

Paid memberships are also available for those eager to start their journey to wholeness at Drayson Center.

Our Beginnings

Loma Linda University Drayson Center is named for Ronald and Grace Drayson, who generously donated their Alto Vista mobile home park property on Redlands Boulevard.

With an estimated value of $8 million, their gift provided a major portion of the $16.2 million required to complete the recreation and wellness complex. The center's name recognizes their dedication and commitment in perpetuity.
