Family Physicians and Healthcare Services in Fort McMurray 

Your Health. Our Passion.

In 2006, all of Fort McMurray's Family Physicians banded together to form one network - the Wood Buffalo Primary Care Network (WBPCN) - to provide comprehensive healthcare and specialized services to all local residents.

In Fort McMurray, the WBPCN:

The WBPCN is committed to providing patient-centered health care services that are tailored to what our unique community actually needs. We believe that we are strongest not as individual practitioners working in isolation, but as a unified team, a professional family responsible for maintaining a medical home for all residents of Fort McMurray.

Whether you have lived here for years, or only just recently arrived, we would like to extend to you a warm invitation to access our services. Everyone has a home in Fort McMurray's Community of Care.

 

Why should you become attached to a local Family Physician?

There is a longstanding myth here in Fort McMurray that Family Physicians are hard to come by. Nothing could be further from the truth; in fact, there are currently 12 doctors accepting new patients. Access to Primary Care is free for Albertans as long as you have registered for the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan.

Every resident of Fort McMurray stands to benefit from being attached to a local family physician, whether or not you're a newcomer, only live here part time, or have been a member of our community for years.

Not only do residents who have a regular family physician enjoy better health and fewer hospitalizations than their unattached peers (Health Quality Council of Alberta), they also have access to a wide variety of other healthcare programs and services only available to those with a family physician.

Take the first step to safeguard and improve your wellbeing in Fort McMurray - find a Family Physician accepting new patients.
