OCONOMOWOC — Rogers Behavioral Health will expand eastward, with a new location planned for Philadelphia beginning early next year, the company announced in a statement Monday. The Philadelphia location will be the fifth one in the network outside Oconomowoc, with facilities in Tampa, Nashville, Chicago and Minneapolis areas. It also has three behavioral health hospitals and six outpatient centers in Wisconsin.

Rogers will lease space within an office building in the Wynnefield part of Philadelphia, in a mixed-use area on the city’s west side. At the facility, Rogers promises to offer outpatient programs for children, teens and adults struggling with mood disorder, obsessive- compulsive disorder and other anxiety disorders.

“We have successfully extended our services to five states in the past two years as part of our desire to respond to the growing demand for quality mental health services,” said James Ledbetter, vice president of regional partial hospital operations for Rogers. “Our goal with these specialized services is to complement and fill gaps in services in these national markets.”

The health care facility will be led by Dr. Martin Franklin as its clinical director. Franklin specializes in the treatment of OCD and anxiety, especially for children and teens. He also is an associate professor of clinical psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. He will be joined by Brian Haney, who will manage the office as its director of operations.
