About Oak Street Health
Oak Street Health is a rapidly growing company of primary care centers for adults on Medicare in medically-underserved communities where there is little to no quality healthcare. Oak Street’s care is based on an entirely new model that is based on value for its patients, not on volume of services. The company is accountable for its patients’ health, spending more than twice as long with its patients and taking on the risks and costs of their care. Since 2013, Oak Street Health has been investing in communities across the Midwest – providing much-needed primary care for tens of thousands of people in 24 centers. The company recently announced an expansion to Philadelphia in 2018. For more information, visit http://www.oakstreethealth.com.
