About Us

​​​​​The Calgary Rural Primary Care Network (CRPCN) is a not-for-profit organization and joint venture with Alberta Health Services (AHS). The goal of the CRPCN is to promote primary health care services in rural Alberta through working with our partners and community stakeholders. The CRPCN has been operating since 2006 and works together with local rural family doctors and AHS in the communities of Black Diamond, Bragg Creek, Chestermere, Claresholm, Eden Valley (a community of the Stoney First Nation), High River, Lake Louise, Nanton, Okotoks, Siksika First Nation, Gleichen, Strathmore, Langdon and Vulca​​​​n. The CRPCN represents 33 clinics, over 135 physicians, and serves more than 130,000 residents in the area. 


 

Working to improve the overall health of the community and quality of primary health care services, the CRPCN features local health care members that work together to coordinate existing services, lead new initiatives, and monitor performance of creating an exceptional Medical Home experience. Through facilitating/offering services related to nutrition, exercise, and other areas of health management, the CRPCN hopes to encourage multidisciplinary care for rural​ communities. Check out our programs page 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 family doctors, AHS and community partners. ​​
