Oak Street Health has opened its first location on Long Island.
The chain of primary care centers for adults on Medicare opened a 10,000-square-foot clinic at 14-16 Brooklyn Ave. in Freeport earlier this month.
The company, which says it is the only primary care provider to carry the AARP name, also plans to open a second Long Island center in Hempstead later this year.
“We are thrilled to open our Freeport center in New York and begin delivering an unmatched patient experience and improving health outcomes for older adults in the community,” Dr. Yonette Davis, senior medical director at Oak Street Health, said in a company statement. “At Oak Street Health, we are committed to providing the highest quality care to meet the individual needs of our patients and we are excited to bring our innovative healthcare model to the area.”
A subsidiary of CVS Health, Oak Street Health delivers personalized, preventive primary care through an integrated model that incorporates behavioral healthcare and social determinants support. It provides a mix of in-center, in-home and telehealth appointments, as well as a 24/7 patient support line.
Oak Street Health, which currently operates more than 170 centers across 21 states, accepts all forms of Medicare, including Original Medicare Part B, select Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Supplement or Medigap plans and Medicare-Medicaid Plans.
