Kenney, Mayor of PhiladelphiaPatrick Kennedy, former United States Representative and CleanSlate Board Member; Joanne McFall, Keystone First Market President; Rob Wonderling, President and CEO of The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia; and Mark Squilla, Philadelphia City Councilman.

The Philadelphia center opening has been championed by insurance providers and CleanSlate partners. These include Keystone First, a Blue Cross Medical Assistance (Medicaid) product and the largest Medical Assistance managed care product in southeastern Pennsylvania; and AmeriHealth Caritas, a national leader in Medicaid managed care and other health care solutions for those most in need. AmeriHealth Caritas and Keystone First have demonstrated leadership in emphasizing the need for medication-assisted treatment for members with opioid addiction, and are doing their part to increase access to evidenced-based care. 

The grand opening is poised to receive a great deal of media attention, with several news crews planning to cover the event. An iHeart Media radio interview about this partnership and the importance of medication-assisted treatment for people suffering from the disease of addiction will feature CleanSlate Area Medical Director Dr. Todd Fasnaught and Keystone First Market President Joanne McFall.
