Accessibility to Rogers’ Renowned Services Increases
The summer of 2015 marks a milestone in our mission to increase accessibility to quality mental healthcare with the opening of Rogers Memorial Hospital’s new 56-bed inpatient facility in Brown Deer, Wisconsin.
The third comprehensive behavioral health campus for Rogers, this hospital provides inpatient care and stabilization for children, adolescents and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, addiction and other mental health disorders. These services compliment the specialty day treatment services already in place in Brown Deer, offering a variety of treatment options throughout the many phases of the recovery process.
The new space features more than 50,000 finished square feet and houses individual and group therapy rooms, experiential therapy, a gym, training and educational space, admitting and registration, kitchen and cafeteria, as well as staff offices. Incorporating the “healing power of nature,” the building is designed to bring the outdoors inside with large windows for maximum sunshine, as well as other natural elements. The ‘living wall’ is a perfect example, as it greets visitors with a breath of fresh air and peacefulness when they enter the lobby area.
Expansion Brings Additional Requests for Help
With the expansion of healthcare services in Brown Deer, Rogers Foundation has already seen an increase in requests for assistance, such as patient care grants and for personal needs. Indeed, there are no limits as to what we can provide for our patients. The Foundation office is flooded with stories of families with extreme financial constraints who cannot pay for treatment, children having not eaten dinner from the night before or breakfast that morning, teens needing stress balls and other items for coping skills at home, and parents reporting no means of transportation to get to treatment.
All these things stand in the way of successful recovery.
A gift to Rogers Foundation can supply a gas card to a mother so she can bring her daughter to treatment. It can provide a coping skills item for a teenager to use at home during a time of stress. It can provide a patient care grant to an adult so he may experience the beauty of better days ahead.
