A new space for the Cochrane health team

  • News

In April, Cochrane residents will have a new, more welcoming space where they can access free health care support.

Calgary Foothills Primary Care Network has a variety of health professionals located in Cochrane, who can assist with primary care needs ranging from helping to create a care plan for a healthier lifestyle, to helping with medication management and supporting mental health.

These health team members will be moving just around the corner from the existing clinic into a space equipped with larger, private consultation rooms and a multipurpose space. The new space is located at #5, 201 Grande Blvd.

“We are excited about this long-term investment in the Cochrane community,” says Jake Jennings, Executive Director for Calgary Foothills PCN, which manages the Cochrane health team.

“This new location allows us to better support our family doctor members in Cochrane with a more functional space where people can access a wide range of personalized services tailored to their health and well-being.”  

Access free health care support in Cochrane

From mental health counselling to cholesterol management, all Cochrane residents can access health care support through the Cochrane health team – free of charge. Our team works collaboratively with your family doctor to improve your overall health. 

The Cochrane health team includes behavioural health consultants, a health management nurse and clinical pharmacist who can help you:

  • Set goals for a healthier lifestyle – our health management nurse can work with you to set achievable health goals – like increasing physical activity, testing for memory concerns or accessing support for conditions such as diabetes, high-blood pressure or high-cholesterol. 
  • Improve mental health – behavioural health consultants and health management nurses can help you cope with stress, anxiety or depression. Our team can work with you to improve your overall emotional, social and mental well-being.
  • Understand your prescriptions – our pharmacist can help you understand prescriptions, supplements and vitamins. They can also work with you on health goals, such as weight management or quitting smoking.

Bookings with the Cochrane health team can be made through a family doctor referral, by calling 1-855-79-CFPCN (23726) or (587) 774-9736 or booking online. Please note, people looking to see a behavioural health consultant need to have a family doctor in Cochrane who is a member of the Calgary Foothills PCN.

Additional support through the Primary Care Network

In addition to the local health team, people in Cochrane can access a variety of free health care support – such as online and in-person workshops – through Calgary Foothills PCN.
