Rogers Memorial Hospital announces the upcoming ribbon cutting of a pair of new facilities, continuing the organization's emphasis on patient experiences and meeting the highest standards of quality in behavioral health treatment.

The hospital, located in a private wooded lakeshore in southeastern Wisconsin, has built new facilities that will serve both the organization's inpatient centers as well as children and adults in treatment at Rogers' renowned residential treatment centers for eating disorders, chemical dependency and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

"Opening these patient-focused facilities represents a continued investment in our patient experience," said Jerry Noll, chief financial officer at Rogers. "We're not adding any capacity with these projects; patient privacy and safety is Rogers' motivation."

The new buildings were constructed to blend 21st century amenities with the hospital's historic charm, and will replace current facilities, some of which are located in one of the hospital's original buildings constructed in the early 1900s.

The experiential center features a gymnasium, fitness center, relaxation room, art therapy studio, and recreation room. The new inpatient building will replaces all of the current facilities for the hospital's eating disorders, child and adolescent and acute inpatient psychiatric units.

The ribbon cutting marks the two-thirds completion of a $26.5 million construction project. With the opening of a $6.5 million experiential center, a $12 million inpatient hospitalization center, officials now look forward to opening a $7.5 million facility to house the hospital's residential centers for children and teens.
