Oak Street Health projects strong growth in 2021, despite the loss of $ 64 million in the first quarter

The losses were due in part to significant growth in operational expenses, including higher medical claims expenses and cost of care in the quarter. The company has yet to be profitable and reported that its losses deepened during the quarter to $64 million, compared to a loss of $15.4 million in the first quarter of 2020, said Oak Street Health chief financial officer Tim Cook said  Net earnings per share came to a loss of 29 cents.

Oak Street Health projects to bring in between $315 million and $320 million in revenue in the second quarter and grow its base of at-risk patients to at least 86,000. The company expects to operate at least 117 centers and up to 121 health clinics by the end of the year and bring in at least $1.3 million in full-year revenue, representing 47% growth over 2020 revenue.
