Former Medicare and Medicaid executive Ruben Jose King-Shaw, Jr. has become CEO of of All-Med Services of Florida and Clinical Medical Services, the company’s Puerto Rico-based operations.
King-Shaw served in the Bush administration from 2001 to 2003 where he led many of President Bush’s and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy G. Thompson’s health care initiatives as deputy administrator and chief operating officer of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Prior to joining the Bush Administration, King-Shaw was the Secretary of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). He was appointed to head the agency by Governor Jeb Bush in 1998.
“Ruben Jose King-Shaw, Jr. is a man of great integrity and a true leader in the public service arena and healthcare sector,” said former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush in a prepared statement. “I am certain that his experience and understanding of this industry will serve as a great asset in this new endeavor.”
King-Shaw will be responsible for leading the companies’ strategic growth while addressing changing market conditions and patient demand. Raul Rodriguez, who founded both companies, will serve as executive chairman, and will continue to play a pivotal role in the organization, with a focus on long-term strategy, value creation and the companies’ core principles.
“Ruben brings unique expertise and a stellar track record to All-Med Services and Clinical Medical’s already impressive leadership team,” Rodriguez said in a prepared statement. “His extensive healthcare experience and past performance as an effective leader will ensure not only that the companies will continue to deliver world-class service to our patients and customers, but position us as the industry standard for durable medical equipment providers.”
