On June 8, Rogers broke ground on a residential care center in Brown Deer scheduled to open by summer 2022. Rogers clinicians and leadership, village officials, and representatives from Moore Construction Services and Quorum Architects attended the ceremony.
Connected to Rogers’ inpatient care facility located at 4600 W. Schroeder Drive, the two-story, 24,000-square-foot addition will accommodate 32 beds with separate space for adults and adolescents. Patients will receive specialized treatment services for depression, trauma, bipolar, other mood disorders, and substance use disorder with co-occurring mental health issues.
“We know that more people than ever are seeking mental health treatment, and there has been a gap in available resources,” says Derrick Jordan, vice president of operations, Brown Deer. “We are honored to be able to expand access and provide them with access to high-quality, specialized, intensive psychiatric treatment.”
This is the first time residential treatment will be offered in Brown Deer, where inpatient and outpatient mental health and addiction care are currently provided. Along with Oconomowoc and West Allis, Brown Deer will be the third Rogers location to serve residential patients.
“This is an exciting new endeavor and opportunity to respond to the need of the community at large,” says Roger Luhn, MD, medical director, Brown Deer. “With this expansion of services, patients will be able to complete our recommended, evidence-based clinical pathway to long-term recovery, with an additional option close to home.”
