Rogers Memorial Hospital has more than a decade of commitment and investment in outcomes studies, with nearly 10,000 of our patients participating. Patients who agree to participate are asked at admission and discharge to complete a series of questionnaires; follow-up calls on progress are made periodically after discharge.
Study findings are used by our treatment teams to examine the effectiveness of our clinical program and to make improvements. The findings are also presented at national and international conferences and published in peer-reviewed medical literature.
Overall, our outcome data consistently shows that our residential treatment centers offer effective treatment. When contacted between six to 12 months after they leave the program, past patients report that they’ve been able to maintain the gains they made during treatment.
Outcome Reports by Specialty Area:
The following outcomes reports were prepared under the direction of Pamela Bean, PhD, MBA, executive director of research at Rogers Memorial Hospital, to provide a summary of outcome data by specialty area. We have made them available to download in a PDF format for referring professionals; however, they may also have relevance and interest to prospective patients, families and other stakeholders.
The data reported is from 511 adolescents admitted to the Adolescent Center during the last eight years. Patients completed a series of standardized questionnaires including the Children’s Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale self-report (CY-BOCS-SR) to measure the severity of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) to measure the severity of depression. For adolescents diagnosed with OCD, the data shows that their symptoms significantly improved from severe to mild symptoms between admission and discharge. Similar results were reported for the teens diagnosed with major depression, with improvement from severe to mild depression between admission and discharge. These improvements remained for at least 15 months after discharge. Download PDF
Eating Disorder Center
The data reported is from 804 adolescents and adults who were admitted to the Eating Disorder Center during the last 10 years. Patients completed a series of standardized questionnaires including the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q version IV), which measures behaviors such as binging and purging, fasting, restraining, and shape concerns; and the Eating Disorder Quality of Life Scale (EDQLS), which measures quality of life in the areas of school/work, family and close relationships, general physical health and psychological status. The data shows that eating disorder behaviors (EDE-Q scores) decreased from a substantial clinical severity at admission to sub-clinical severity at discharge. Quality of life (EQLS scores) show nearly 40% improvement between admission and discharge, and that these improvements remain for at least 20 months after discharge. Download PDF
Herrington Recovery Center
The data reported is from 184 adults who were admitted to the Herrington Recovery Center during the last two years. Two well-established assessments were used, the Work and Social Adjustment Scale (WSAS) to measure functional impairment and the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS) to measure symptoms of depression. The data shows that WSAS scores decreased from severe functional impairment level at admission to significant impairment at discharge, then continued to improve with WSAS scores becoming sub-clinical at follow-up. Depression symptoms decreased from a severe level at admission, to mild depression at discharge and remained mild at follow-up. Download PDF
The data reported is from 400 adults with a primary diagnosis of OCD admitted to the OCD Center during the last 12 years. Patients completed a series of standardized questionnaires including the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale self-report (Y-BOCS-SR) to measure severity of OCD, and the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) to measure the severity of depression. The data shows a statistically significant improvement in Y-BOCS scores from an average of severe OCD symptoms at admission to moderate at discharge, as well as a significant decline in depression levels, which dropped from a moderate to mild level at discharge. Both OCD and depression symptoms remained mild for more than a year after the end of residential treatment. Download PDF
