Providers Portsmouth, AK

Company: Oak Street Health 

Title: Primary Care Physician (Value-based Care, Retail Setting) 

Location: Various 

Company Description 

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. For more information, visit

Oak Street Health offers our physicians advantages that simply can’t be found in other practices, including: 

  • Employed staff position with above-market compensation made up of base salary (without R.V.U. targets) and bonus based upon quality metrics (not volume). 

  • Outpatient responsibilities only. 

  • Full malpractice coverage. 

  • Generous benefits, including vacation time, health insurance, retirement benefits, and C.M.E. stipend. 

  • Beautiful centers focused around the community. 

  • Small patient panels for consistency and focus. 

  • Cloud-based electronic health record and enterprise suite. 

  • Innumerable support resources to help you provide outstanding care. 

Why does Oak Street Health offer all of these benefits? Because we know what it takes to deliver the highest level of care, and our care teams deserve the best resources to succeed and enjoy their work. 

Specifics on this opportunity: 

Oak Street Health has a historical focus on Medicare patients, and that focus continues in these retail-based centers, but care teams here also take care of patients with a range of insurance options, including Medicaid, commercial, and self-pay. In addition to the Oak Street Health Physician, our care teams in the retail setting will include an NP/PA, Medical Assistants, and other support roles. Care teams will see patients 18 months and older. This position is eligible for a signing bonus and relocation stipend where applicable. 


These retail-based centers operate on extended hours, and the Physician will work Monday-Friday 8:00 am — 4:30 pm. On Monday-Thursday the Physician will be physically present at one site managing his/​her own panel of patients. On Fridays the Physician will alternate each week between our other retail sites supporting our NPs/​PAs.

Ideal candidates will be: 

  • M.D. or D.O. graduates.
