We’re rebuilding healthcare as it should be.

Since our founding in 2012, our mission has been to build a primary care delivery platform that directly addresses rising costs and poor outcomes, two of the most pressing challenges facing the United States healthcare industry.

Everyone deserves great healthcare.

Older adults have specific healthcare needs. Many don’t receive it. When they do, appointments are brief, in-network doctors can be far away and they don’t get personalized treatment plans. We’re changing all of that.

  • 01

    Personal

    Nothing is more personal than your health. Our care is personal, spending significantly more time with our patients and knowing them as individuals.

  • 02

    Equitable

    You should have access to the same great care no matter where you live. We invest in our communities by building Oak Street Health centers where healthcare services are needed most.

  • 03

    Accountable

    Many adults on Medicare have chronic and complex conditions. We hold ourselves accountable for our patients’ health by taking on the risk and cost of their care.

Value Over Volume

We’re all in on helping patients live healthier.

Most primary care practices follow fee-for-service models, which often prioritize volume of patient visits over quality of care. Oak Street Health largely operates under a value-based managed care model, meaning our approach aligns the incentives of our patients, our providers and our payors by simultaneously improving health outcomes and care quality, lowering medical costs and improving the patient experience.

Our country spends way too much on healthcare, and we don’t get enough back. With Oak Street Health, we set out to build healthcare how it should be. We took everything from various models that were working, brought it all together and built a new model from scratch.
