The clinic offers primary care for adults on medicare as well as a community care center. Oak Street staff says they hope their unique services will help those seniors who need care most.
"We have this beautiful green van that will go and pick people up to and from their appointments," says Oak Street Regional Vice President Rachel Rader. "Making sure they don't ever worry about how am I getting to the doctor. We don't ever want that to be a barrier on how they get care."
