A new Medicare health clinic is opening today on Chicago’s far North Side.

The ‘Oak Street Health Clinic’ is located on Devon near Clark Street in the Edgewater neighborhood.

The health care is free, with co-pays for all Medicare patients.

It is run by three graduates from Harvard Medical School who say they saw a need for a comprehensive health care facility for seniors, who often have several doctors and rely on hospital emergency rooms for medical care.

A second location will open later this month in Portage Park.
