Rogers Behavioral Health System (Oconomowoc, Wis.) has announced that Stephanie C. Eken, M.D., has been appointed regional medical director for the organization’s partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs, effective September 2014.
Eken, who has been with Rogers since 2009, begins her new role with responsibility for medical leadership at Rogers’ first out-of-state satellite location, Rogers Behavioral Health – Tampa Bay, opening in Florida in September.
Most recently, Eken served as the medical director of the Child Center at Rogers Memorial Hospital’s Oconomowoc campus. This psychiatric residential treatment program is dedicated to treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), depression and mood disorders, tourette syndrome and other tic disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and more. The new programs in Florida will focus on treatment for OCD and anxiety disorders for children, teens and adults.
“As a triple board-certified pediatrician, child and adolescent psychiatrist and adult psychiatrist, Dr. Eken’s clinical background is valuable in discovering effective ways to meet a patient’s physical and emotional needs,” said Paul Mueller, chief executive officer for Rogers Memorial Hospital. “Her leadership brought the Child Center national recognition as a one-of-a-kind treatment center. Now her experience and knowledge in complex mental health issues will be an asset as we continue to meet the needs of local communities.”
In Tampa, Dr. Eken will partner with Eric Storch, Ph.D., a University of South Florida Health Morsani College of Medicine professor and clinical psychologist, who was recently announced as clinical director for the program.
