A Handle on Healthcare

"You can't control healthcare costs without controlling healthcare."

That maxim is offered by Todd Keller, CEO of a Jacksonville workplace healthcare company, in explaining how his 21-year-old company has grown from an industrial medicine onsite care company providing injury diagnosis and minor treatments at a power plant under construction to a 135-employee, $14-million revenue a year provider of wellness, prevention, disease management and primary care for employer clients in 12 states. Keller, 53, assigns registered nurses, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to client job sites. Finding and controlling diabetes or hypertension early can reduce treatment costs by $1 million over a patient's lifetime, Keller says.

Creating a Memorial

Frank Sacco

Memorial Healthcare System
CEO, Hollywood

Exercise: Bikes 90 to 100 miles on weekends with the Memorial Cycling Club.

Bio: Ohio native, graduate of a Miami-Dade high school, Miami Dade College, Florida International University (master's, healthcare management) and University of Miami (bachelor's).

Years at Memorial: 33.

Years as CEO: 20.

What it is: A tax-supported system with hospitals, a nursing home and day surgery and outpatient centers.

Significant community service seed: Took over pediatric and obstetric primary care from the state health department 15 years ago.

Unique: A myriad of community programs. One example: Memorial worked with law enforcement and community groups to start neighborhood associations in troubled areas. Through diversion programs started at faith-based centers, Memorial works with 8,000 to 10,000 at-risk youths a year.

Future: "It's just kind of pyramid-ed -- our passion to make this a better community to live in. It's like a rodeo now. We're just trying to ride this bronco."

Lately: The recently acquired and renamed Memorial Regional Hospital South, cancer and breast cancer centers, and expansions in western suburban facilities.

Next up: A freestanding building for Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.

Goal: "The legacy and passion I have now as I go into the final phase of my career is to make the Memorial Health Care System and its hospitals the safest in the country."
