Alberta Heartland Primary Care NetworkThe Alberta Heartland Primary Care Network (PCN), has served Fort Saskatchewan, Gibbons, Lamont, Redwater, and the surrounding area since July 1, 2009.
A group of 30 physicians in 16 clinics work with a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals to provide care for patients and to coordinate primary health care services. The team includes registered nurses, a dietitian, an exercise specialist, a pharmacist, registered psychologists, an occupation therapist, specialist referral coordinators, and administrative staff.
Your physician and the health care team work together to coordinate your care, improve access to the health system and support positive changes toward a healthier lifestyle. In addition to addressing your health concerns, we will provide you with health counselling, education and when required, referral to alternate services.
The Fort Saskatchewan office serves as home base for the PCN team where we offer educational classes, individual assessment and counselling. A community Hub opened in Lamont in September, 2013. Outreach services and classes are offered throughout our service area.
