Natalie Lester, M.D., joins OneFifteen as Medical Director Members appointed to boards of OneFifteen Health and OneFifteen Recovery
Dayton, Ohio - June 14, 2019
OneFifteen, a non-profit ecosystem dedicated to the full and sustained recovery of people living with opioid addiction, is celebrating the opening of the first facilities within its state-of-the-art campus today in Dayton, Ohio. OneFifteen, which was launched earlier this year by Kettering Health Network, Premier Health, and Verily, also welcomed Natalie Lester, M.D., M.P.H., M.B.A. as medical director and announced the members of the boards for OneFifteen Health and OneFifteen Recovery. OneFifteen will begin seeing patients later this summer, with clinical care provided by Samaritan Behavioral Health, Inc., a subsidiary of Premier Health.
"I am honored to participate in today's grand opening of the OneFifteen ecosystem. OneFifteen will provide much-needed wrap-around services dedicated to the recovery of those suffering from opioid addiction," said Senator Rob Portman (R-OH). "This approach to addressing addiction and its grip on our communities is exactly what is needed to help turn the tide of the opioid epidemic in the Dayton region and Ohio. I am working to help ensure local groups like the ones I met with today have the support they need to continue their good work."
Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. (NYSE: ARE) designed and is developing the OneFifteen campus to connect patients with social and other support services, consolidating the many needs of patients in one location. Today's ribbon cutting marks the completion of two of the six spaces that will compose the full campus, and includes 33,000 square feet dedicated to outpatient and inpatient residential care, which will initiate later this summer. Guided by the concept of recovery as a journey, rather than a linear path, the campus will be anchored around a curved, looped pathway that connects all of the experiences and elements of the OneFifteen ecosystem. The clinical care and supporting services of the recovery process will all be housed in buildings that touch the physical path, which acts as a metaphor for each patient's own path of recovery.
"The spirit and strength of the Dayton community has been apparent to us since our early days conceiving of what is now OneFifteen," said Andy Conrad, CEO of Verily. "OneFifteen will be one of multiple channels to support the recovery of individuals dependent on substances and the revitalization of Dayton. At Verily, we are also supporting the work spearheaded by its community leaders by enabling OneFifteen's partnerships with other organizations, such as Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, that share the goal of working towards a brighter future for Dayton."
"Once known for its legacy of innovation, in recent years, Dayton has been at the center of the devastating national opioid epidemic—the public health issue of our lifetime," said Joel Marcus, executive chairman and founder of Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. "With an extremely heartfelt undertaking, our team at Alexandria is working to create a safe campus environment with all of the components necessary to help people recover from addiction and live healthier lives, while working to revitalize the community."
Dr. Natalie Lester joins OneFifteen as medical director
Dr. Lester comes to OneFifteen from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where she was the medical director of psychiatric emergency services. In that role, Dr. Lester led a multi-disciplinary team of health care providers focused on psychiatric observation and care for patients in crisis. As medical director for OneFifteen, Dr. Lester will oversee clinical quality and the implementation of evidence-based best practices, including medication-assisted treatment and psychological counseling. OneFifteen will provide the full continuum of care to patients on its campus, which is expected to be complete in 2020.
"We welcome Natalie to the team—her career reflects her passion for working with some of the most vulnerable people in our communities, as well as her commitment to reducing the stigma associated with brain diseases, like an addiction. She will help OneFifteen realize our holistic, tech-enabled approach to recovery and advance best practices for the treatment of addiction," said Marti Taylor, president and CEO of OneFifteen. "Our momentum has been outstanding due to the collaborative spirit of our partnerships and the commitment of our team."
"In Dayton, we recognize that to build a community of recovery we will need the partnership of innovative organizations like OneFifteen that think about addiction and treatment in a new, holistic way," said Mayor Nan Whaley. "Dayton has come a long way from the early stages of the opioid epidemic by focusing on bridging gaps and developing coordinated efforts across organizations. I am thrilled to participate in today’s event with OneFifteen and look forward to their continued collaboration with the Dayton community."

OneFifteen to Offer Comprehensive Model of Care to People with Opioid Use Disorder in Dayton, Ohio
New non-profit ecosystem will offer treatment, rehabilitation housing and wrap-around services within a "learning health" system OneFifteen collaborators will host a press conference today at 10:00 am Eastern Standard Time
Dayton, Ohio - February 6, 2019
OneFifteen, a new non-profit ecosystem dedicated to the full and sustained recovery of people living with opioid addiction, has been established in Dayton, Ohio, to deploy a tech-enabled system of care to treat substance abuse disorders, that includes a behavioral health treatment center, rehabilitation housing and wrap-around services. The ecosystem comprises OneFifteen Health, a taxable non-profit Management Services Organization that manages behavioral health services with the aim to advance evidence-based medicine for addiction, and OneFifteen Recovery, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) that coordinates community-based, wrap-around services for patients.
OneFifteen is intended to provide the full continuum of care to patients, and the system will align with the National Academy of Medicine concept of a "learning health care system," which continually improves treatment and outcomes by deriving insights from its operational and clinical data and advances best practices. The OneFifteen learning health care system will be integrated by Verily, an Alphabet company, and will apply analytics to measure the effectiveness of various interventions, while maintaining stringent standards for patient privacy and data security. Clinical care will be serviced by an operating partner of OneFifteen, Samaritan Behavioral Health, Inc., a subsidiary of Premier Health.
"We are thrilled to launch OneFifteen in Dayton, Ohio, to support the recovery of people suffering from opioid use disorder, and over time other substance use disorders," said Marti Taylor, president and chief executive officer of OneFifteen. "Recovery is not a 28-day process and requires a long-term, holistic approach for success. OneFifteen will offer evidence-based care that addresses the many unmet needs of people in recovery, including vocational training and sober living. By taking a community-based, partnership-driven approach, the OneFifteen ecosystem is working to establish a virtuous cycle of recovery, creating an environment conducive to broader rehabilitation efforts."
OneFifteen will provide services on one state-of-the-art campus, designed and developed by Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. (NYSE: ARE), to connect patients with social and other support services that are critical for long-term recovery, but fall outside of traditional models of care. OneFifteen will begin seeing individuals for inpatient and outpatient care in the spring of 2019. The full campus is expected to be completed in 2020.
"Dayton has been at the epicenter of our national addiction crisis, and we have worked to share what we've learned through that experience with other communities," said Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley. "OneFifteen's focus on continuously learning how to improve addiction treatment aligns closely with our community's innovative and collaborative approach to this issue. I am thrilled to welcome OneFifteen to Dayton to join our robust ecosystem of partners tackling opioid addiction."
Kettering Health Network and Premier Health, in addition to their leadership roles within the OneFifteen ecosystem, will be a part of the OneFifteen data integration models to support clinical care and will provide input on regional protocols and standards of care. Premier Health and Kettering Health Network are the two largest healthcare systems in the greater Dayton area, and together have more than 180 years of experience serving the area.
"We are pleased to be a part of OneFifteen," said Terry Burns, executive vice president of Kettering Health Network and president of Kettering Medical Center. "Through this partnership, we can use our resources to provide hope and healing to people suffering from opioid addiction. As a faith-based health system, we are called to serve our community's greatest needs. Our mission of improving people's lives is strengthened when we join together to address the opioid epidemic."
"Addiction is a disease best defeated through a public health mindset," said Mike Maiberger, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Premier Health. "The Dayton community has put a dent in our overdose crisis by adopting this mindset and through collaboration. We are pleased, along with Samaritan Behavioral Health, to be partners in this ambitious initiative, which goes hand-in-hand with our mission to improve the health of the communities we serve. OneFifteen's evidence-based approach should, over time, fine-tune local efforts to prevent and treat substance abuse and heal our communities."
OneFifteen looks forward to a continued and productive collaboration with the many public, government, business and community organizations in Montgomery County, and would like to extend a special note of appreciation to: The Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board of Montgomery County; Carillon Civic Council and Greater Edgemont Community Coalition; CityWide; Dayton Development Coalition; The Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association; The City Manager's Office, Dayton; and The Office of the Mayor, Dayton.
