Oak Street Health, a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare, is expanding access to more older adults with the Jan. 7 opening of its new center at 183 W. Apache Trail Suite B109 in Apache Junction.
The new Apache Trail Oak Street Health will be holding a grand opening with the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, with members of the chamber of commerce, council members, agents, patients, insurance representatives and other community members and partners. Refreshments will be provided and tours of the center will be available.
It is Oak Street Health’s first center in Arizona, marking the 20th state for the company, which plans to open additional centers throughout the greater Phoenix area and Tucson in 2022, according to a release.
“We are excited to expand access to our high-quality, value-based care to members of the Apache Junction community with the opening of this new center,” Rose Martin, regional vice president at Oak Street Health, said in the release. “The majority of older adults we care for have two or more chronic conditions, making this kind of care so important. As our organization continues its mission to rebuild healthcare as it should be, we look forward to improving patient outcomes in Arizona and helping older adults live their healthiest lives.”
Oak Street Health patients can expect an unmatched healthcare experience that includes quality time with their provider in-person or via telehealth visit; a 24⁄7 patient support line; individualized, preventive care plans; and access to transportation to and from the center for eligible patients. Additional services, such as behavioral health care and social health support, and Medicare education classes, are also offered to help older adults meet their unique needs in one convenient location.
Since its founding in 2012, Oak Street Health has driven an approximately 51% reduction in patient hospital admissions compared to Medicare benchmarks, 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, the release states.
Oak Street Health will accept multiple health plans at all locations, including traditional Medicare.
