Aurora to invest $35 million in behavioral health services in southeast Wisconsin

Mental Health Task Force Update

Aurora Health Care is investing $35 million to expand services at its psychiatric hospital campus in Wauwatosa, the health system announced Friday.

Aurora plans to add 18 patient rooms at the psychiatric hospital. It also wants to replace the 90-year-old Dewey Center with a modernized residential substance abuse and rehabilitation facility, increasing capacity from 15 to 30 beds. And it has plans to build a new Alumni House, which serves as a short-term sober living facility.

The investment will “increase access to much-needed behavioral health services and substance abuse treatment in southeastern Wisconsin,” Pete Carlson, president of Aurora Psychiatric Hospital and Behavioral Health Services, said in a statement.

Pending approvals, the expansion and enhancement project is slated to start early next year, and is expected to be completed by early 2018.
