Rogers Behavioral Health System announced today that it will be able to serve more Wisconsin residents in the Fox Valley with the opening of a specialized regional treatment center in Appleton, WI. Rogers, Wisconsin’s largest private, not-for-profit behavioral health provider expects to begin seeing patients in fall 2015.
The new center, which will operate as Rogers Memorial Hospital—Appleton, will be located in leased office space at 4351 W. College Ave. near Highway 41. Rogers will offer adults an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for obsessive-compulsive disorderand partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for eating disorders, depression and anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder.
According to Paul Mueller, CEO of Rogers Memorial Hospital headquartered in Oconomowoc, “Rogers has a long tradition of meeting community needs in southeastern Wisconsin. Our goal is to complement existing services while providing convenient, local access to the specialized care for mental health and addiction that Rogers is known for. Four years ago, we extended our services to Madison. Now we’re excited to do the same in the Fox Valley.”
“We’re really pleased that we’ll be able to offer a diverse mix of behavioral health services in Appleton.” says Theodore Weltzin, MD, FAED, FAPA, regional medical director for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs. “These clinics offer an intensity of psychiatry, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy that is hard to find, especially in these intensive programs.”
In addition to Weltzin’s medical leadership, Rogers will be supported by David Drewek, director of operations. Drewek previously served as service line director of the behavioral health inpatient unit for Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls, WI, as part of a management contract between Community Memorial and Rogers.
Appleton will become the sixth Wisconsin location for Rogers. It recently opened similar specialty outpatient programming in Tampa, FL, and plans to extend services to Nashville, TN, and Chicago, IL, in 2015 as well.
