Ideal option
In January of 1993, Armando and Dr. Minda obtained a wedge-shaped building on the corner of 67th Street and North Broad for what would become the site of the medical center—a dream that would come to success.

In January of 1994, the Wedge Medical Center opened its doors as a mental health and drug and alcohol therapy facility. They opened the doors with only three employees, Armando Magundayao, Patrick Palmer, and an additional employee. Mr. Palmer worked on strengthening the policy and procedures for the Wedge as Armando continued to complete the construction work needed to build a more business-like environment.

They began seeing its initial clientele on a pro bono basis since, at the time, there were no existing agreements with insurance or managed care companies. Even after the roof failed and a threat of personal bankruptcy, the outlook of the Center began to look more promising. The first contract was signed with Medco in November 1994, and they started to hire therapists. Beginning funds were received in February of 1995, then South Wedge opened in mid-1995, later followed by Poplar. In 1998, Venango started. Logan and Germantown began in 2006, Juniper in 2007 and Frankford in 2010. Wedge has continued to grow, with 3 Opiate Treatment Programs and a PA Opiate Use Disorder Center of Excellence designation in 2016, and a unique Enhanced Mental Health Outpatient clinic in 2017.

Today The Wedge operates over 200 staff members and continues to remain dedicated to giving only the highest quality mental health and drug and alcohol services to those trusted to its care.
