Verily, Premier Health, Kettering Health Network open tech-enabled opioid recovery center

Dayton, Ohio-based Premier Health and Kettering Health Network, in partnership with Google sister company Verily, opened the first two facilities of the OneFifteen opioid addiction treatment system on June 14.

The full OneFifteen campus — named for the 115 people who died of opioid overdoses each day in the U.S. in 2017 — will comprise six facilities providing both clinical and community-based wraparound services, expected to be completed in 2020. The entire system will provide a mixture of traditional analog care and tech-enabled services, with Verily tracking data across the campus to continually improve the recovery process.

The two opening this week span 33,000 square feet of spaces dedicated to outpatient and inpatient residential care, which will begin admitting patients later this summer.

OneFifteen also announced this week the appointment of Natalie Lester, MD, as medical director of the campus. Prior to this, Dr. Lester served as medical director of psychiatric emergency services at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
