OCONOMOWOC, Wis., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rogers Behavioral Health System announced plans to add a third Rogers Memorial Hospital location and expand outpatient services in Brown Deer, Wis., following two recent property acquisitions.

"We're pleased to bring greater access and more resources for mental health to Brown Deer and the surrounding communities," Pat Hammer, system president and CEO, said in announcing the expansion for the northeast Milwaukee region.

The two facilities acquired by Rogers encompass  approximately 110,000 square feet. The building at 4600 West Schroeder Drive was originally built as an 80-bed psychiatric hospital and outpatient center. For the past nine years, Rogers has leased space at the location for its child and adolescent day treatment program. With the purchase, Rogers intends to spend approximately $12 million to restore the building to a 56-bed facility (single and double rooms) with inpatient services for children, teens and adults. Work will include a complete interior renovation and roof renovation. Anticipated opening is spring 2015.

Additionally, Rogers has purchased an adjacent building at 4555 West Schroeder Drive. Interior remodeling is planned starting in spring 2014. Once completed, the building will be home to Rogers' child and adolescent day treatment program and Rogers InHealth, a key corporation focused on reducing stigma surrounding mental health care. This location will further support the inpatient programs at the hospital through future growth in partial, day treatment and intensive outpatient services.  

Rogers anticipates a staff size of 300. Specific programming at each location is not determined, but will match Rogers' current specialties in obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, depression and mood disorders and addiction. "We plan to work with the community to ensure a mix of services that meet with local needs," Hammer said.

Rogers Behavioral Health System consists of five key corporations: Rogers Memorial Hospital; Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation, Inc.; Rogers Partners in Behavioral Health, LLC; Rogers Center for Research and Training; and Rogers InHealth. The hospital has become nationally recognized for its specialized residential treatment services and affiliations with academic institutions and teaching hospitals in the area. Rogers Memorial Hospital is currently Wisconsin's largest not-for-profit, private behavioral health hospital, providing adults, children and adolescents with depression and mood disorders treatment,eating disorders treatment,addiction treatment, obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders treatment, as well as caring for a variety of child and adolescent mental health concerns.  For more information, please visit rogershospital.org/newsroom.
