Kenneth Aldridge, RN-BSN, MS-HSA
Director of Health Services, Rosen Medical Center
Kenneth has served Rosen Hotels and Resorts since 1998 in a variety of roles. With his bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Central Florida, Kenneth began as a triage nurse in the Rosen Medical Center not only providing patient care, but also organizing medical staff training and managing emergent medical needs. Within two years, Kenneth was promoted to Medical Staff Manager supervising the Center’s medical assistants and licensed practical nurses, leading and coordinating medical staff internal educational programs, managing patient education and handling departmental reports.
In 2004, Kenneth was promoted to Medical Center Administrator. In this role, he oversees all daily operational aspects of the medical center, including staff management, strategic planning, provider relations, public relations, budget development and analysis, and pharmaceutical and other external contract negotiations. In May of 2005, Kenneth completed a Master’s degree in Health Services Administration from the University of Central Florida. In 2008, Kenneth was promoted to Director of Health Services responsible for various programs for the over 5700 covered lives of Rosen Hotels and Resorts. Responsibilities include strategic planning, contracting, budgeting, community relations, quality assurance, program development, reporting, compliance programs, presentations, government relations, recruitment, claims reviews, utilization review and other responsibilities.
In 2012, Kenneth was a vital team member for the planning, design and implementation of the new 12,000 sq. ft. Rosen Medical Center, A Place for Healing and Wellness. Kenneth brought into the new facility a full fitness center, physical therapy, digital x-ray, dexascan, ultrasound, sleep studies, and a chiropractor.
Kenneth has truly found his niche in healthcare administration. Years of establishing professional and personal relationships within Rosen Hotels and Resorts, Inc. and the Central Florida healthcare community have allowed Kenneth and the exceptional team to grow the medical center from one facility to two and expand the center’s service provision to the students of the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality. Providing a second location has improved access to healthcare for those served by the medical center.
