South Zone Healthcare Planning

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

As our communities and province grow and age, and demands on the healthcare system evolve, we need to plan for the future of health services.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is creating the South Zone Healthcare Plan to help shape the high-level strategic vision, direction, and clinical service plans for AHS’ South Zone for the next 10 to 15 years. The South Zone Healthcare Plan will be the road map for decision making and prioritization to provide quality, accessible and sustainable health services. The development of this plan will require a zone-wide approach, reaching into the communities served by the zone to understand their unique perspectives and priorities.

To do that, we need to hear from you. Start by registering to receive updates as this project progresses.

    The community voice is an essential component to share the future of healthcare in the South Zone. Over the past few months, we have received great feedback and insights, and we have heard that communities have more to share. For this reason, we are extending the timeline for the online survey to January 15, 2023.
