Oak Street, Interwell Combine Primary Care & Dialysis with New Joint Venture

Oak Street Health teamed up with kidney care management company Interwell Health to create a joint venture called OakWell, which seeks to provide primary care to end-stage kidney disease patients directly in existing dialysis centers. End stage kidney disease patients spend upwards of 12 hours per week in dialysis centers — OakWell is meant to eliminate the barrier of attending separate, additional medical appointments.
