Oconomowoc-based Rogers Behavioral Health System plans to open an obsessive-compulsive disorder treatment facility in Tampa Bay, Fla.
The location, Rogers’ first outside Wisconsin, is expected to open this summer. Rogers operates the largest nonprofit psychiatry and addiction services health organization in Wisconsin.
Rogers Behavioral Health-Tampa Bay will offer intensive outpatient treatment for children, adolescents and adults. Eventually, Rogers plans to add a partial hospitalization program.
Eric Storch, a University of South Florida Health Morsani College of Medicine professor and clinical psychologist, will be the clinical director of the facility.
“Rogers has a real depth of experience and programming in OCD treatment,” said Patrick Hammer, Rogers’ system president and chief executive officer. “On a daily basis, we treat more patients for OCD than anywhere else. We draw patients from around the country, but we also understand the benefit of being able to get this kind of care closer to home. We see this as a winning combination for everyone involved, but especially for our patients.”
