Well, the few couple steps are the same,

$ wget https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/health/gnuhealth-latest.tar.gz
$ tar xf gnuhealth-latest.tar.gz
$ cd gnuhealth-3.4.1/

but I don't see setup.py. Instead I see three executable files:
gnuhealth-setup, gnuhealth-control, and start_gnuhealth.sh.

When I run

$ ./gnuhealth-setup

I get

This is GNU Health Setup 3.4.0

usage: gnuhealth-setup command

  version : Show version
  install  : Install a GNU Health server
  help  : shows this message

So perhaps try running 

$ ./gnuhealth-setup install

and see if this installs GNU Health. (I did not try this myself since I
don't want to install GNU Health on my machine.)

If that appears to work, try running it with

$ ./start_gnuhealth.sh
