CHICAGO — A Cook County woman is suing a Rockford residential treatment center, alleging she was sexually assaulted.

Mary Bohanan filed a lawsuit May 3 in Cook County Circuit Court against Universal Health Services, Inc., doing business as Rock River Academy & Residential Center, alleging negligence, sexual abuse and sexual harassment.

According to the complaint, between 2012 and 2013, Bohanan experienced abuse, sexual assaults and battery during her stay at the facility. The plaintiff alleges Rock River Academy failed to hire competent staff more suited to be around adolescent females as well as failing to take action when one of their patients was being mistreated.

Bohanan seeks judgment of at least $50,000, plus court costs. She is represented by attorney I. Peter Polansky of Polansky & Cichon CHTD. in Chicago.
