DALLAS (PRWEB) July 28, 2020
Oak Street Health, a fast-growing network of value-based, primary care centers for adults on Medicare, is continuing its nationwide expansion in 2020 with the opening of the company’s first centers in Texas. The company plans to open two centers in Dallas and two centers in Fort Worth during the month of August.
- The Meadowbrook center located at 4115 East Lancaster in Fort Worth is anticipated to open on August 3.
- The North Side center located at 1950 Ephriham Avenue in Fort Worth is anticipated to open August 10.
- The Casa View center located at 2360 Gus Thomasson Road in Dallas is anticipated to open August 24.
- The Pleasant Grove center located at 1515 S. Buckner Boulevard, Suite 141 in Dallas is anticipated to open August 31.
“Seniors need dependable, high-quality primary care more than ever, and as we navigate the transition during the ongoing pandemic, we are proud to enter the Dallas-Fort Worth communities to support older adults with our innovative, value-based primary care,” said Tamara Jurgenson, Chief Growth Officer of Oak Street Health. “The strength of our model and the dedication of our team has been further validated during the last several months, and we look forward to meeting and caring for our new patients in Texas.”
The openings in Texas brings the number of states where Oak Street Health currently treats patients to nine. During the month of August, Oak Street Health is also planning to open new centers in existing states of North Carolina, Michigan and Ohio. The company serves more than 85,000 patients across its current primary care centers.
“Oak Street Health was founded with the mission to rebuild healthcare as it should be and our entry into Texas furthers that mission,” said Jurgenson. “The traditional fee-for-service primary healthcare model is ineffective, and we believe there is a better way to care for our seniors in Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond as we move forward.”
Oak Street Health patients can expect an unmatched healthcare experience that includes quality time with their provider in-person or via telehealth visit; a 24/7 patient support line; individualized, preventive care plans; and access to transportation to and from the center for eligible patients. Additional services, such as behavioral health care and social health support, and Medicare education classes, are also offered to help older adults meet their unique needs in one convenient location.
Since its founding in 2012, Oak Street Health has seen a 51 percent reduction in patient hospital admissions compared to Medicare benchmarks. Oak Street Health will accept multiple health plans at all locations, including traditional Medicare.
