The Irving community came together Wednesday to celebrate the recent opening of Irving's new Oak Street Health center with a ribbon cutting, food and music. The center, which opened in mid-August at 2928 N Belt Line Road, is the ninth Oak Street Health center in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area and the 12th location across Texas.
“We are proud to be a part of the Irving community and today's grand opening was a way to say thank you to our new neighbors. We are committed to serving older adults here in Irving with access to our high-quality, value-based care as part of our company's mission to rebuild healthcare as it should be,” said Dr. Rupen Amin, Regional Medical Director at Oak Street Health.
Oak Street Health is a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare with more than 100 centers across the country in 15 states.
