Shape the future of your health care

Press Release

Dec 12, 2023

Starting in January, health care workers and Albertans are invited to join in-person engagement sessions to give their input into the refocusing of Alberta’s health care system.

A refocused health care system will improve health outcomes for Albertans and empower health care workers to deliver quality care across the province. Alberta’s government has committed to engage with the health care workforce and all Albertans in a thoughtful and thorough manner.

There will be up to 30 in-person engagement sessions hosted around the province beginning in January. These sessions will allow Alberta’s government to gather further insights into the successes, challenges and strengths of the current health care system, which will help shape the future of health care.

“Engaging with health care professionals, patients and all Albertans is a vital pillar in our government’s effort to refocus the health care system. The input, experiences and feedback we gather will help create a more effective and efficient health care system that is accessible to all Albertans in every corner of the province. You deserve health care that supports you and your family now and for generations to come.”

Adriana LaGrange, Minister of Health
