Walgreens division president Rosenbluth to retire
March 14th, 2011
DEERFIELD, Ill. – Hal Rosenbluth has announced his retirement as president of Walgreen Co.’s health and wellness division effective in April, but he plans to continue with the company as a senior consultant for health care services.
Rosenbluth was a cofounder of Take Care Health Systems, which was acquired by Walgreens in 2007. Before that, he led Rosenbluth International, a global travel management company, which he sold to American Express in 2003.
“Hal’s entrepreneurial spirit was instrumental to Walgreens as we expanded our pharmacy, health and wellness services through our Take Care retail clinics and work-site health centers,” says Walgreens president and chief executive officer Greg Wasson. “He helped these businesses become key components of Walgreens’ broad set of health and wellness offerings.
“Under Hal’s leadership, we have restructured our sales and client services organization and have added to our clinical capabilities. Hal will continue to provide valuable counsel in this dynamically changing health care environment.”
Wasson notes that Walgreens intends to continue to expand its pharmacy, health and wellness solutions.
“With our sales and client services organization now set up for success, and our health and wellness solutions further integrated within the company, this is the right time for me to make this transition,” Rosenbluth comments.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to be part of Walgreens, a company committed to providing affordable, accessible and high-quality health care to meet the growing needs of this country.”
