December 1st marks CleanSlate’s 10 year anniversary. This is no small achievement given the fact that we started with one center in Massachusetts and will end the year with more than 80 centers in 11 states.

This would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our Warriors for Hope over the past 10 years who have been champions for our patients in creating access in this fight.

Over the years, we have heard amazing stories of our patients’ successes with us in their journey, and none of those stories would be possible without our amazing and dedicated team.

With that in mind, the Culture Committee is excited to sponsor a contest centered around our first core value, ?Patients First.?


  • Every team member is encouraged to provide us with your favorite example/story of Patients First.
  • You can submit your own story or nominate someone else?s story/example.
  • The Culture Committee will review responses and send them to Greg Marotta and Bob Wilson with our recommendations for the top 3 examples that best exemplify putting Patients First. 
    • 1st place gets a new iPad
    • 2nd place gets a $300 AMEX gift card
    • 3rd place gets a $150 AMEX gift card
  • You can submit your entries to me at by Friday, December 13 to be considered. 

Also, be on the lookout in December for an anniversary gift to all Warriors for Hope to celebrate our 10 year anniversary on behalf of the Culture Committee. Whether you?ve been here for one week or 10 years, you are making an impact on our patients? lives and we appreciate you!
