“A model for health-care reform.” That’s how many describe the Rosen Medical Center, established by Rosen Hotels and Resorts in Orlando, Fla. The center includes chiropractic care provided by Mark Williams, D.C., Florida ’08.

The self-insured, company-managed, on-site medical center was founded 25 years ago by central Florida hotelier Harris Rosen. It provides excellent, affordable health care to employees and dependents of the Rosen Hotels and Resorts properties, as well as to students of the University of Central Florida, Rosen College of Hospitality Management.

“The reason Rosen Medical Center is such a unique place to work is that they actually believe in wellness care,” says Dr. Williams. “They try not to prescribe too many medications and always consider alternative methods of care.”

Dr. Williams is the first chiropractor, and chiropractic is the first specialty area to be included within the Rosen Center. For Dr. Williams, working sideby- side with other doctors within the same building allows them to give the patients the care they need in a timely and convenient manner.

“I’ve been with Rosen for three years,” he says. “When I began, one or two doctors were referring patients. Now, as they’ve been educated, they all refer patients as they see how the patients are treated and the care they receive. Mostly they see the results.”

Regarding how his Palmer education prepared him for this career, Dr. Williams says, “I really enjoyed my time at Palmer’s Florida campus. I met a lot of great people and learned a variety of specific techniques, allowing me to pick and choose what works best for my patients.”
