About Nanton Community Health Centre
Nanton Community Health Centre is a full service family practice, seeing patients over their entire life span. We use a team approach to health care which means you will encounter physicians, nurse practitioners and other health professionals within our clinic such as Lab services, Public Health and Home care. An inter professional team will be involved in providing your care in collaboration with Alberta Health Services, Alberta Health and Calgary Rural Primary Care Network.
