ROGERS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ADDS BOARD MEMBERS

(Oconomowoc, Wis.) Four new members were added to the Oconomowoc-based Rogers Behavioral Health System Board of Directors at its annual meeting.

New members are:

Molly Kubly Fritz, of Milwaukee;

Demond A. Means, EdD, district superintendent of the Mequon-Thiensville (WI) School District;

Jonathan Wertz, JD, RN, director of risk management for the Medical College of Wisconsin;

Brad Riemann, PhD, clinical director, Rogers OCD Center and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Services, Rogers Memorial Hospital.

At its annual meeting, the Rogers system formally consolidated its board governance, moving from a system, hospital, and two subsidiary boards to one 20-member system board and a remaining Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation board. Kubly Fritz, Means and Wertz previously served on the board of directors for Rogers InHealth, an advocacy arm of Rogers focused on reducing stigma. Riemann was previously on the hospital foundation board.

“We believe this structure provides us with a foundation of support and guidance appropriate for a national leader in specialized behavioral health,” said Garry D. Anderson, system board chairman and senior vice-president of investments for Robert W. Baird & Co., Inc., Oconomowoc. “Rogers is a private, not-for-profit, unaffiliated, independent organization with much to offer those in need of psychiatric and addiction services. We welcome our new members and look forward to working together in serving community needs.”

Rogers Behavioral Health System has five locations across Wisconsin and recently opened its first out-of-state satellite in Tampa, FL.
