Since 2006, the Calgary Rural Primary Care Network (CRPCN) has been working with family doctors, nurse practitioners and other health team members to help you be as healthy as possible.
The way we deliver health care in our communities - by providing support through a team that includes 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 our goal is to promote primary health care services in rural Alberta through working with our partners and community stakeholders.
We represent 42 clinics, 137 physicians and 5 nurse practitioners, and serve more than 140,000 residents in the communities of Arrowwood, Bragg Creek, Chestermere, Claresholm, Diamond Valley, Eden Valley, Gleichen, High River, Langdon, Nanton, Okotoks, Siksika First Nation, Strathmore, and Vulcan.
Our local health care specialists work together to coordinate existing services and to lead new initiatives. By offering services related to nutrition, health and wellness, and mental wellness, the CRPCN hopes to encourage multidisciplinary care for rural communities. Check out our workshops for more information.
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 primary care providers, Alberta Health Services and community partners.
