Oconomowoc, Wis.) Three psychiatrists have accepted expanded roles as medical directors within clinical services at Rogers Memorial Hospital locations in Brown Deer, West Allis and Oconomowoc:

 

  • Hemalatha Rajanna, MD, medical director, adult outpatient services, Rogers Memorial Hospital–West Allis and its Lincoln Center Outpatient Center.
  • Jennifer R. King, MD, medical director, child and adolescent services, Rogers–Brown Deer.
  • Jody A. Langford, MD, medical director for child and adolescent inpatient eating disorder unit at Rogers–Oconomowoc.

Dr. Rajanna completed her psychiatry residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin and holds various professional memberships, including the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association.

“Dr. Rajanna has a wealth of training and experience in the behavioral health field and we couldn’t be more pleased to have her provide medical leadership,” says Khazi A. Muqeet, MD, MRCPsych, medical director of Rogers–West Allis. “Since joining Rogers in 2014 as an adult psychiatrist for inpatient and partial hospital programming, she’s been a valuable member of our West Allis and Kenosha teams.”

Dr. King also serves as chairman of peer review and is a member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She has spent more of her professional career promoting quality, effective services for underserved populations.

“Dr. King has been a great asset to the medical staff at Brown Deer since she started in August 2015,” says Roger Luhn, MD, medical director of Rogers–Brown Deer. “She’s helped countless families in our inpatient and adolescent partial hospital programs.”

Jody A. Langford, MD, also completed her psychiatry residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin and is a member of the Academy of Eating Disorders, among other organizations. Her clinical interests include pediatric healthcare and comorbid challenges in the treatment of eating disorders.

“Dr. Langford’s work with children and teens in crisis has been exceptional,” says Brad E.R. Smith, MD, medical director of eating disorder services. “She’s done a great job of helping children with eating disorders and complex co-occurring conditions not only stabilize medically and psychiatrically, but also make vital strides in those very difficult first steps towards recovery, and she will expand on that role in her new position.”
