Oak Street Health
Oak Street Health approached OKW in 2013, looking for an architect to design and execute a prototype for their medical clinics. Their business model was unique: it emphasized bettering the health of under-served communities through preventative care. The design of their clinics play a critical role in this mission - sensitively designed community rooms encourage patients to spend more time in the clinics and with doctors, thus reducing hospital visits.
Since their first clinic opened in 2013, OKW has partnered with Oak Street Health for an additional fourteen across the Chicago area and venturing into western Indiana. We are proud that Oak Street Health offers a much-needed alternative medical office solution to its patients.
