Oak Street Health, a network of primary care centers for adults on Medicare and the only primary care provider to carry the AARP name, is welcoming patients at its new Glendale location.

The new Glenfair center is located at 6052 N. 59th Ave.

This is Oak Street Health’s fourth center in Arizona. The company plans to open additional new centers throughout the greater Phoenix area and Tucson this year.

“We are thrilled to open our Glenfair center in Glendale and begin delivering an unmatched patient experience and improving health outcomes for older adults in the community,” Dr. Charlotte Gurule, Oak Street Health senior medical director, shared in a statement. ​

The Glenfair clinic opened with 15-20 team members and will continue to grow as the patient panel increases. They hope to have around 35-50 employees.

Oak Street Health delivers personalized and preventive care through a model that meets the unique needs of older adults. The integrated model incorporates behavioral health care and social determinants support and is easily accessible through a mix of in-center, in-home and telehealth appointments, as well as a 24⁄7 patient support line.

The company has reduced patient hospital admissions by approximately 51% compared to Medicare benchmarks, and driven a 42% reduction in 30-day readmission rates and a 51% reduction in emergency department visits, all while maintaining a Net Promoter Score of 90 across patients, according to the news release.

Oak Street Health accepts all forms of Medicare, including Original Medicare Part B, select Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Supplement or Medigap plans and Medicare-Medicaid Plans.
