Rogers Behavioral Health Opens Brown Deer Residential Care to Expand Access to Care

Rogers leaders and community representatives celebrated the opening of Brown Deer residential care on June 29, 2022.
As part of its goal to increase access to mental health and addiction services, Rogers Behavioral Health recently opened a residential care center in Brown Deer. 

This is the first time residential treatment is being offered in Brown Deer, where inpatient and outpatient mental health and addiction care are also provided. Along with Oconomowoc and West Allis, Brown Deer is the third Rogers location to serve residential patients.

Connected to the inpatient hospital, the 24,000-square-foot addition accommodates 32 patients with separate space for adults and adolescents. Patients receive specialized treatment for depression and other mood disorders as well as underlying conditions such as anxiety and substance use disorders.  

“It is our privilege to expand our residential services in Brown Deer as part of our high-quality, evidence-based treatment at this location,” said Amanda Boeke, PsyD, vice president of Residential Services. “Offering expanded residential treatment means more people can benefit from Rogers’ continuum of care with better clinical outcomes and overall patient experience. The new center also helps to alleviate the high demand we are experiencing across the System for specialized mental health care.” 

In residential care, patients receive treatment on campus, typically for 30 to 90 days. They have more time and resources for the recovery process from traumatic events and complicated life circumstances. 

With this expansion, Rogers operates three inpatient behavioral health hospitals, 17 residential programs, eight outpatient centers, and a supportive living facility in Wisconsin.
