Oak Street Health Opens Little Village Center in Chicago
Date:9/24/2018

Oak Street Health, a network of health centers providing a new model of value-based primary care for Medicare patients, has added the Little Village center to its Chicago operations. With the addition of Little Village, Oak Street Health now has 13 locations in the Chicagoland area which solidifies the company’s vision of providing care for adults on Medicare in areas where health care is needed most.

The Little Village center will provide citizens in the community with Oak Street Health’s proven care, as well as health education specific to this population at the center. Patients will have access to door-to-door transportation, along with unique programming including fitness classes, computer lessons, educational opportunities and movie screenings to foster relationships and build community. Oak Street Health will offer Medicare assistance and serve as a trusted healthcare resource in this community.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to provide great care to the citizens of Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood,” said Brad Minkow, Regional Vice President at Oak Street Health. “There was a direct need for our care model and approach in this area, and this center furthers our goal of rebuilding healthcare as it should be - more personal, equitable and accountable for all.”

Oak Street Health’s model of care differs from a traditional doctor’s office. Physicians meet with patients three times as often as the industry average, and care teams spend more than twice as long with patients as a typical doctor’s visit. The company’s model has reduced Medicare hospitalization for patients by 40 percent and has led to a 94 percent patient retention rate.

The new center is located at 3010 W. 26th Street Chicago, IL. 60623.
