Oak Street Health is a rapidly growing, innovative company of community-based healthcare centers delivering higher quality health and wellness care that improves outcomes, manages medical costs and provides an unmatched experience for adults on Medicare in medically underserved communities. By providing holistic, comprehensive and integrated care right in our patients’ communities, we can help keep them healthy and reinvest cost savings in further care for those same communities and others. Since 2013, Oak Street Health has brought its singular approach to tens of thousands of people across the nation. With an ambitious growth trajectory, Oak Street Health is attracting and cultivating team members who embody Oak Street values and are passionate about our mission to rebuild healthcare as it should be.
Oak Street Health Nurse Practitioners are an integral member of our Care Teams, which also include Physicians, Registered Nurses, Medical Assistants, Clinical Informatics Specialists, Phlebotomists, and Care Managers. NPs see patients independently and alongside the doctors, depending upon the patient’s specific situation. Nurse Practitioners provide longitudinal care and build meaningful patient relationships; this creates trust and helps our patient understand and feel connected to their care plan.
Together this team is responsible for providing and coordinating care for an intimate panel of patients in our neighborhoods. While the typical primary care panel in the U.S. is around 2,500 patients for a single physician, our panels at Oak Street Health are around 500-750 for a team. This creates an opportunity to spend more time with patients, build deeper relationships, and to better execute/coordinate care plans.
Nurse Practitioners practice exclusively in our outpatient practices. We partner with a network of elite specialists and hospitals for specialty and acute care. As such, our NPs, with our doctors, focus exclusively on care within the clinic: primary care, care coordination, and population health.
