Additionally, the current economic times, the pandemic, and the Great Resignation have posed bigger challenges to employers with respect to driving down costs and retaining talent.
How can employers revamp their healthcare strategy to avoid wasting money on unnecessary, low-value care and enhance the overall employee experience? In this webinar, gain actionable strategies to move away from traditional benefit plan designs and implement novel models that deliver timely care at the right place and time, put the purchaser/employer in control of healthcare spend, demand transparency, and significantly improve outcomes.
Innovative, generous and a giant in the hospitality industry, Harris Rosen almost needs no introduction. As the founder, president and C.O.O. of Rosen Hotels & Resorts, Harris Rosen took a chance on one hotel in the 1970’s, a chance on himself, and it paid off. Now, the Rosen name stands tall on seven Orlando-area hotels and multiple foundations benefitting children in underserved communities, warriors taking cancer head-on and even people in other countries hit hard by disasters.
Mr. Rosen created RosenCare, an innovative, award-winning insurance plan that not only gives associates and their families comprehensive coverage but pays for 90% of all medications. In the process, it is estimated to have saved his privately-owned company approximately 500-million dollars and counting since its inception. Along with RosenCare, he established the Rosen Medical Center, which offers employees and their loved ones top-notch medical care and wellness programs, on-campus and while on-the-clock.
Mr. Rosen also created the Tangelo Park and Parramore preschool programs which provide free preschool to children ages 2, 3 and 4 in those underserved communities. These initiatives have been lauded for their excellence in preparing students and providing a stable learning environment from which to start their educational journey. When those students graduate high school, college or vocational school scholarships are there for them covering tuition, books and room & board and other expenses.
Just this year alone, Mr. Rosen has earned Leadership Florida’s LeRoy Collins Lifetime Achievement Award for going above and beyond to improve the lives of all Floridians, the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Champion of Education award and the Healthcare Revolutionary award presented by the Healthcare Revolution Conference among others.
Kenneth began serving Rosen Hotels and Resorts (RHR) as a triage nurse in 1998. Since then he has climbed the ranks of the Rosen Hotels Healthcare Services department, now known as RosenCare. Not long after Kenneth’s promotion to Medical Center Administrator, he completed his Master’s degree in Health Services Administration at the University of Central Florida where he has served as an adjunct professor since 2012 in an effort to train up future health service administrators in excellence and with a different mindset.
In 2008, Kenneth earned the role of Director of Health Services making him responsible for serving the over 5700 covered lives of the RHR employees and their dependents. He spends his workdays involved in strategic planning, contracting, budgeting, community relations, quality assurance, program development, reporting, compliance programs, presentations, government relations, recruitment, claims reviews, utilization review, and much more.
In 2012, Kenneth led a team in planning, designing and implementing a new 12,000 sqft Rosen Medical Center, A Place for Healing and Wellness. Kenneth integrated physical therapy, digital x-ray, Dexascan, ultrasound, sleep studies, chiropractic care, dietetics, and a full fitness center into the Medical Center to comprehensively meet the patient’s needs onsite. These and many more cost-containment efforts have saved the RHR over $500 million since its inception.
Kenneth has truly found his niche in healthcare administration. Years of cultivating relationships between Rosen Hotels and Resorts and the Central Florida healthcare community have allowed Kenneth to grow the Rosen Medical Center and RosenCare while improving patient access to health services. In 2019, RosenCare was asked to lead and manage the onsite health center and all the health services of a local Central Florida municipality. Kenneth and the RosenCare team have saved this municipality nearly $6 million in their first year. They continue to strive towards providing the highest quality care at the most affordable price with the greatest amount of convenience for the patient not only for the RHR covered lives, but also those they care for in other public and private companies they serve through RosenCare.
Additionally, Kenneth serves on the planning team for the annual Rosen Hotels Health and Benefits Fair, he is a graduate of Rosen Hotels and Resorts Management Training Program and the Certified Leader Program. He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). In 2011, Kenneth was honored as an Outstanding Health Administrator by the Orlando Business Journal, and in 2012, Kenneth was honored to receive the College of Health and Public Affairs Outstanding Alumni Award from the University of Central Florida. Additionally, Kenneth serves on the board of directors for a few healthcare organizations.
