Oak Street Health, a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare, has opened its second location on Fondren Road at 11251 Fondren Road, Houston.

The new clinic opened Nov. 22 at the former Palais Royal location—an 8,300-square-foot space at the intersection of Fondren and West Bellfort Street—with several exam rooms as well as a community room for seniors to connect with fun and safe activities throughout the week, according to a news release from the network.


“The community has been very welcoming, and we look forward to creating more connections and partnerships with local organizations and nonprofits,” said Scott Belsky, regional vice president at Oak Street Health, in an email to Community Impact Newspaper. “We want to ensure that we are providing a high quality patient experience while also making a positive impact on the community we serve.”

The new opening brings Oak Street Health’s clinics in the Greater Houston area to two, and there are plans to open at least two more centers in Houston before the end of winter, including an Eastex center and a Northshore center, according to the release.

The goal is to hire 15-20 clinical and service staff members ranging from medical assistants and nurses to administration roles, Belsky said in an email.
