Rogers opens Brown Deer residential care

07/21/22 03:44:pm

The new residential center in Brown Deer is officially open with Focus Depression Recovery residential care for adolescents. The program serves teens age 13 and up who are struggling with depression, other mood disorders, and co-occurring conditions like anxiety or substance use.

Once Adult Focus Depression Recovery residential care opens in the next few weeks, the center will provide specialized depression treatment for up to 32 adult and adolescent patients.

“Offering expanded residential treatment means more people can benefit from Rogers’ continuum of care with better clinical outcomes and overall patient experience,” said Amanda Boeke, PsyD, vice president of Residential Services. “The new center also helps to alleviate the high demand we are experiencing across the System for specialized mental healthcare.”

To celebrate the new Brown Deer residential center, Rogers held an open house event on June 29 featuring a ribbon cutting, remarks, and tours for referring providers. Employees also had the opportunity to tour the new space on June 30.

“Here in Wisconsin, I know a model has been birthed in Rogers that serves the whole country,” said John Boyd, PsyD, CEO, Hospital Division, at the open house. “My hope is that this community is very proud to recognize at this moment that we call a ribbon cutting, that we call a grand opening. I call it a grand, life-changing moment.”

“I can’t think of a more welcoming environment,” added Brad Riemann, PhD, chief clinical officer and chief operating officer, at the event. “Just walking in here has such a great feel to it, and I’m so happy because I know that by increasing access and by increasing the number of beds of people we can serve, we’re going to be able to get people into treatment faster and get this care.”

Rogers now offers a full continuum of care at all three southeastern Wisconsin locations: Oconomowoc, West Allis, and Brown Deer. For a complete list of programs, visit rogersbh.org.

Rogers’ first Colorado location continues preparations to open in October 2022. Lani Healy is the director of operations, while Julia Carbonella, PhD, is the clinical director. The clinic will be located at 10333 East Dry Creek Road, Suite 350, in Englewood, Colorado. Treatment at the location will include:

  • Focus Depression Recovery Partial Hospitalization Care (PHP) for
    adults and adolescents

  • OCD and Anxiety PHP for adults, adolescents, and children


The space dedicated to Focus Depression Recovery adult residential care (known internally as Focus B) is no longer admitting patients, as it is being transitioned to OCD, Anxiety, and Depression adult residential care (OADC). The Focus B team will officially move to the expanded 24-bed OADC on July 24.


Philadelphia will open a Mental Health and Addiction Recovery PHP for adults, tentatively beginning this summer pending licensing.


One year after opening, the Sheboygan clinic has opened an in-person OCD and Anxiety PHP for children and adolescents. The clinic now offers this program both virtually and in person to best serve the needs of their community.
