One Rogers: Celebrating a Culture of Connection06/17/22 09:42:am
Since launching One Rogers in mid-May, Rogers team members nationwide have been coming up with creative ways to celebrate the movement from special lunches and dress-up days to sharing their personal stories in video submissions.
One Rogers is all about bringing people together, strengthening relationships, and creating a spirit of connectivity throughout the organization.
“The main theme of the One Rogers campaign is to unify all of our team members around our Mission, and we want to do that in a manner that everyone feels connected to helping people gain access to treatment and enter the recovery process,” said Pat Hammer, president and CEO, in a video message to employees.
John Boyd, PsyD, Hospital Division CEO, shared, “Pat and I couldn’t be more excited about all of you getting to know each other even more as a part of the One Rogers team and ultimately One Rogers Family that spans across the country.”
To help us become more connected, everyone is invited to share what One Rogers means to you by submitting your personal story of mental health, something that motivates you to do your job each day, or a special someone or furry friend who supports you at home.
Christina Mundschau, residential care specialist at Herrington Center for Mental Health and Addiction Recovery in West Allis, shared her story in a video submission. She is a graduate of the program and is proud to give back.
“The reason I love working here is because Rogers saved my life,” Christina said. “What gives me purpose is looking back on the treatment team that I had and the people that worked for Rogers that never gave up on me, that poured everything that they had into me, valuing my life, not caring about stigma, not caring about how many times I had tried this before. That’s what keeps me pushing.”
Tina Sage, a therapist in the OCD and Anxiety child and adolescent program in Tampa who has been with Rogers for 16 years, also shared a video message.
“What’s kept me a longstanding team member is the compassion, strength, and sense of solidarity among our treatment team,” she said, adding that Rogers is like a second family to her.
