Caring for Our Patients
The significant shortcomings of our healthcare system — poor outcomes, unhappy patients and high costs — are greatly exacerbated for older adults, especially moderate- to low-income adults who face multiple chronic illnesses.
Oak Street Health’s model was purpose-built to directly tackle all of these challenges and provide a level of care and patient experience that is unmatched by traditional healthcare providers. We are investing to bring that model to Medicare beneficiaries and dual-eligibles across the country who deserve this type of care — and in doing so, to reduce the health disparities that exist in our country.

Investing In Our Communities
We make a concerted effort to invest and reinvest dollars to uplift the neighborhoods surrounding our 130+ centers, from supporting local initiatives to the revitalization of the areas where we build our community clinics. With each center we build, we invest more than $2 million into the local community, providing both vital healthcare access and safe community spaces for seniors.

Value-Based Care Is the Answer
There is no debating the U.S. healthcare system doesn’t work for many Americans. But there is a proven, viable solution to our system’s shortcomings and reliance on the old fee-for-service paradigm — value-based care. We embrace a value-based approach so that our success is measured by quality of care — not volume of services.
