Our Work: Expansion Projects

Reaching out to underserved areas

Established in 1907, Rogers Behavioral Health has grown from a single hospital in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, to a nationwide system recognized internationally for specialized mental health and addiction treatment programs.

Rogers remains focused on providing a place to turn for people struggling with mental health challenges. That “place to turn” for specialized treatment is woefully lacking in countless communities across the United States. With support from gracious friends of the Foundation, Rogers is prepared to alter this disparity by opening clinics and expanding programs, providing the hope for recovery and life-changing resources for countless individuals and families.

Here are some recent expansion projects made possible by donor funding:

Ladish Co. Foundation Center – Opened in 2021, the Ladish Center was made possible by a $2 million donation from the Ladish Co. Foundation. It features the Ronald McDonald Family Room, and is home to the Tadross Family Chapel, Rogers Behavioral Health Foundation, and Rogers Research Center.

We are appreciative of all our donors for making this resource possible for our patient families and community: Ladish Co. Foundation, Hurlbut-Johnson Charitable Trusts, Bob and Mary Olson, Roehl Foundation, Stackner Family Foundation, The Tadross Family, and Theodore W. Batterman Family Foundation, Inc.

New clinic and supportive living facility in Sheboygan, Wisconsin – Thanks largely to donor support, Rogers Behavioral Health was able to open its Sheboygan clinic and very first supportive living facility in the fall of 2021. By working closely with patients and families, our multidisciplinary teams, led by board-certified psychiatrists, develop a personalized plan with clinically effective therapies to treat OCD, anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, and co-occurring substance use in adults and adolescents ages 12 to 17. The supportive living space will provide a safe place for individuals to call home while recovering from addiction as well as depression, OCD, anxiety, and other mental health disorders.

Focus Depression Recovery – Thanks to a generous gift from the late Dr. Michael and Billie Kubly, the building that houses Focus Depression Recovery received extensive renovations and was re-named the Charles E. Kubly Adult Residential Center in loving memory of their son Charlie. Through this gift, the family continues their commitment of providing hope for other who are affected by the disease of depression.

Eilers Experiential Therapy Building – The building for Experiential Therapy was funded in part by a legacy gift from Dr. Gayleen Eilers. Named in her memory, the building reflects the integrity and courage with which she lived her life and her hope to make a brighter future for those affected by mental illness.
