Red Deer Primary Care Network (RDPCN)

We are part of your Patient Medical Home. Primary Care Networks (PCNs) bring local physicians and other health care professionals together to provide comprehensive patient care to Albertans. PCNs are comprised of groups of family physicians working with other health care professionals such as Nurses, Pharmacists, Nurse Practitioners, Exercise Specialists, Social Workers, and Mental Health Professionals.

PCNs develop solutions to meet the needs of the local community and their health issues. The Red Deer PCN supports the communities of Red Deer, Blackfalds and Penhold.

PCNs are created through an agreement between physicians and Alberta Health Services. Note that PCNs are not a governing body to physicians; the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta regulates the practice of medicine in Alberta.
