Since 2006, the Calgary Rural Primary Care Network (CRPCN) has been working together with communities, family doctors and other health team members to do whatever we can help you be as healthy as possible.
The way we deliver health care in our communities - by providing support through health specialists such as nurses, dietitians and other health care professionals - we move from reactive to preventative. We collaborate to provide the tools and education to empower patients to work on their everyday health needs.
We are a not-for-profit organization and joint venture with Alberta Health Services (AHS), and our goal is to promote primary health care services in rural Alberta through working with our partners and community stakeholders.
We represent 38 clinics, over 150 physicians, and serve more than 140,000 residents in the communities of Arrowwood, Black Diamond, Bragg Creek, Chestermere, Claresholm, Eden Valley, High River, Nanton, Okotoks, Siksika First Nation, Gleichen, Strathmore, Langdon and Vulcan.
Our local health care specialists work together to coordinate existing services and to lead new initiatives. By offering services related to nutrition, exercise, health and wellness, and mental wellness, the CRPCN hopes to encourage multidisciplinary care for rural communities.

The CRPCN provides new ways for health care members to collaborate in improving health, preventing illness, and providing access to appropriate health services by encouraging ongoing dialogue between family doctors, AHS and community partners.
