Rogers Memorial Hospital hires vice president of operations

James E. Ledbetter, Ph.D., has joined the administrative leadership team at Rogers Memorial Hospital as the new vice president of operations for regional partial hospitalization programs.

He will primarily be responsible for day-to-day operations, leading all aspects of regional intensive outpatient programs and partial hospitalization programs while working with medical leadership to assure high satisfaction for patients and their families.

“At first, my primary focus will be to assimilate and develop a more comprehensive understanding of the high-quality programs Rogers offers and the ways satellite clinics in key markets will complement these services,” Ledbetter said. “I have worked in Tampa and elsewhere and have an understanding of the needs in their communities and the valuable services Rogers can provide.”

Rogers Memorial Hospital CEO Paul Mueller said Ledbetter will be an asset to both the staff and patients.

“Jim brings more than 25 years of senior leadership experience with inpatient and partial hospitalization programming, including multi-site operations, as well as more than 12 years of experience as a corporate CEO,” Mueller said. “His knowledge of strategic markets and strong professional associations with key contacts and other providers in these areas will help us to continue to develop relationships and assure our patients the highest level of care.”

A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Ledbetter holds a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in rehabilitation counseling. He also holds a doctorate from the University of South Carolina in counselor education, where he held one of his first leadership positions and was responsible for developing the university’s partial hospitalization program. Most recently, he served as chief operating officer and vice president of development at United Medical Corporation for Ten Broeck Healthcare/PremierCare in Windermere, Fla.

Rogers Memorial also announced that Dr. Cuong Chi Tieu has been named medical director for the Child Center of Rogers Memorial Hospital—Oconomowoc.

Tieu will manage day-to-day operations at the residential treatment center. He is board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry and general psychiatry. Tieu graduated from Medical College of Wisconsin, and also completed his internship and residency in general psychiatry there. He was chief resident of child psychiatry at MCW from 2008 to 2009.

Tieu most recently served as assistant professor for the department of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Austin, training students, residents and fellows in the use of evidence-based medicine in psychiatric care.

“My passion is individualized medicine,” Tieu said. “I enjoy helping children achieve a balanced, fulfilling and purposeful life. This involves engaging families and caregivers in every step of the assessment and treatment process and ensuring that the tools and skills patients gain during residential treatment carry into their lives when they go home.”

Rogers Memorial treats behavioral health patients and has facilities in West Allis, Oconomowoc, Brown Deer, Kenosha, Madison and Tampa, Fla.
