The Milwaukee center is headed by Amanda Vogt, who previously worked for Rogers Behavioral Health for 22 years.
"Eating disorders are a specific type of behavioral health disorder that require specialized clinical interventions,” Vogt said. “Today, as we continue with the demand for mental health that have continued to surge since the pandemic, we are committed to being good partners in the community by building relationships with patients and their families as well as fellow healthcare professionals. We are eager to support and work with the people in this region, throughout Wisconsin and surrounding states."
