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.
Nothing is more personal than your health. Our care is personal, spending significantly more time with our patients and knowing them as individuals.
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.
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.
What it means to be Oaky.
All Oakies are mission-driven individuals who strive to go above and beyond to support their coworkers and our patients. We work as a team and across disciplines to rebuild healthcare as it should be.
Creating an unmatched patient experience
We’re driven to provide the best healthcare experience our patients have ever had. We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure their well-being.
Driving clinical excellence
We invest in innovation, access and new services to push primary care to new frontiers. This helps us provide outstanding care to all our patients.
Taking ownership and delivering results
Our mission is too important to have small goals. We learn from failure and push ourselves, and each other, to continually improve, collaborate and innovate.
We move fast and operate in a highly ambiguous environment. We make hard decisions, with imperfect information, knowing we’ll have to learn and adjust on the fly.
Radiating positive energy
Positive energy inspires the best in ourselves and our co-workers. People with positive energy are fun to work with and find joy working on our most ambitious goals.
Assuming good intentions
We strive to embody trust, empathy and integrity. We communicate with candor, provide direct feedback and expect the same of our colleagues.
Providing access where it is needed most.
In 2013, we opened our first center in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Oak Street Health continues to expand to new cities and states.
