How we support Primary Healthcare in Alberta
Improving the health and wellness of all Albertans requires strengthening access, quality, and sustainability of our primary care services.
PCNs were developed by Alberta Health Services and Alberta’s primary care doctors to support the vision of creating a fully integrated healthcare system.
In our system, family doctors are the driving force of a multidisciplinary team. Your family doctor and their clinic form your home base for managing you and your family’s healthcare needs. Our network supports the physicians and health clinicians in our area to serve our community’s primary healthcare needs. We are here to ensure you and your family are supported in your health journeys.
We are one of the 40 Primary Care Networks in Alberta. PCNs work to create a shared vision with their family doctors and Alberta Health Services to enhance the health and well-being of the communities they serve.
PCNs strive to improve:
- integration of patient care
- disease prevention and raising the general health of Albertans
- chronic disease management
- capacity and patient access
- the overall health and wellness of patients.
Our framework helps link patients, family doctors and other healthcare professionals into the overall health system with:
- tools and support resources
- health provider linkages
- health and wellness programming
- health data and information to improve the health outcomes of our community and Alberta
Our Primary Care Network serves Sherwood Park, Strathcona County, Fort Saskatchewan, Lamont, Gibbons, Redwater, Bon Accord, parts of Edmonton, and surrounding areas. We operate in partnership with the 39 other Alberta PCNs to support all Albertans.
We are an adaptive, valued community partner that enhances the health of people by building long-term trusted relationships with them and their primary health care team.
To provide comprehensive, inclusive, high quality, team-based health care to enhance the health of people in our community.
Our organizational goals are shaped by our core values, which are to work to the highest levels of accountability, engagement, equity, integrity, trust as a reflection of the integrity and professionalism of the clinicians and teams we support.
