Primary Care Networks (PCNs) were established in Alberta to improve access to family doctors and other frontline health providers. Each Network develops programs and services that meet the local health needs of patients in its area. PCNs are established within a framework set out by Alberta Health, the Alberta Medical Association (AMA), and Alberta Health Services (AHS) and are publicly funded.
The SASPCN was established in 2006, and has grown to include more than 70 doctors who serve more than 80,000 patients in St. Albert and Sturgeon County. The SASPCN supports family doctors with a healthcare team to provide patients with the best care possible.
The SASPCN serves the City of St. Albert as well as Sturgeon County west including Alcomdale, Bon Accord, Calahoo, Lancaster Park, Legal, Morinville, Namao, Riviere Qui Barre, and Alexander Reserve.
