Alberta Health Services, in partnership with Alberta Health, is working with community health partners and Albertans to plan the future of healthcare in our communities.
The goal is to co-design and co-deliver a sustainable, quality health system, one that promotes healthy communities and provides access to services, programs and facilities.
From fall 2016 to fall 2017, the focus is on Calgary Zone and Central Zone long range planning. This follows planning undertaken in the Edmonton Zone, which is ongoing; the province’s North and South Zone planning will follow.
Join the conversation. Share your ideas and help us develop a vision for health services in 15 years that informs decisions today. Planning for each zone will be incorporated into system planning for the province. All Albertans are encouraged to contribute to the discussions.
Changing and evolving the way we look at health services includes diverse perspectives, innovative thinking, new approaches and ideas both big and small.
And there’s always more. Share your insights and ideas - see your zone's page for discussions specific to your area. Check back often for updates and progress.

Alberta Health Services and Alberta Health held think tanks, smaller group workshops and coffee meetings with some of the more marginalized population groups across the Zone between October and December 2016. The goal was to develop a vision of what healthcare could or should look like in 2031. This What We Heard report summarizes what was heard in these sessions.
Central Zone spans from Rocky Mountain House in the west to Lloydminster on the eastern edge of the province, and from Drumheller north through Red Deer, and northeast to Two Hills.
