Rogers Behavioral Health System Inc. plans to open its second treatment center in a Chicago suburb and its second Florida location, continuing the Oconomowoc-based health system’s expansion outside of Wisconsin.

The mental health provider is planning a location in Hinsdale, Illinois and another in Miami, Florida, according to Rogers spokeswoman Anne Ballentine. Rogers already operates in each of those states, with existing outpatient treatment centers in Skokie, Illinois and in Tampa, Florida.

The Hinsdale location will open in fall 2018, and Miami will open in late 2018 or early 2019. Each clinic will serve as many as 40 patients to start. The clinics will have between 25 and 30 employees supported by corporate services located in Oconomowoc.

Services will include treatment for adults, children and adolescents with depression and mood disorders, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Since 2014, Rogers has opened new outpatient centers in Nashville, Chicago, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Skokie and Tampa. The system has three behavioral health hospitals, nine residential programs and six outpatient centers in Wisconsin.

Rogers is also finalizing plans for a new location in St. Paul, Minnesota to open in spring of 2019. The system currently has a location in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

Opening regional centers across the country allows Rogers to serve patients who are transitioning back to their home communities after receiving residential care in Wisconsin, as well as help patients who can be served in an outpatient setting.

“The demand for our specialized mental health and addiction treatment is high, and we’re happy to have the opportunity to grow into new geographical areas,” said Pat Hammer, president and CEO of Rogers Behavioral Health. “Each time Rogers opens a new location, we get an incredible response from referring providers and families who are looking for the intensity and quality of care that Rogers offers. The best part is knowing that more lives will be transformed with treatment and recovery.”

Hammer said in a recent BizTimes interview that the system expects to continue its growth trajectory over the next five years.

With a high demand for its services, Rogers plans to grow its residential treatment center division by about 100 beds over the next year, as well as about 300 spots for outpatient care across the country.
