The St. Albert and Sturgeon Primary Care Network was established in 2006 to enhance the delivery of primary care services. PCN member physicians work with a healthcare team including nurses, pharmacists, mental health nurses, dietitians, social workers, and other staff to provide maternity to end-of-life care, focusing on treating illness, managing chronic conditions, and maintaining wellness.
The St. Albert and Sturgeon PCN strives to be a leader in the community it serves by creating mutually beneficial relationships with key stakeholders. Through community partnerships, opportunities are leveraged to promote patient-centred service.
Our geographical service area is the City of St. Albert as well as Sturgeon County including Alcomdale, Bon Accord, Calahoo, Lancaster Park, Legal, Morinville, Namao, Riviere Qui Barre, and Alexander Reserve.
To deliver seamless, integrated healthcare for everyone.
We provide innovative, efficient and quality health care by delivering patient-centred care through the medical home and advocating for our community.
Quality, Service, Collaboration, and Integrity.
