It must be hard being the “other Kushner.” Joshua’s brother Jared gets all the press because he runs the real estate empire and is married to the beautiful Ivanka Trump who could have been a super model. And now Jared is being touted as the kingmaker in the upcoming Donald Trump administration.
Well Joshua Kushner has been trying to make a name for himself through differentiation, specifically his startup Oscar Health Insurance which was formed in 2012 to provide “smart, simple, and personal healthcare to its members.”
Its new 6, 000-square foot facility has five exam rooms, three consult rooms, a lounge, a laboratory, and a multipurpose room to host wellness classes and events. The practice can host up to six physicians, and will also include a behavioral health specialist and several mid-level providers. The facility will be managed by Dr. Harry Ritter, Oscar’s VP of Care Delivery.
