      Ken Folz

      Ken Folz is the Administrator at Rockford Gastroenterology Associates and joined the team in November 2017. In his role, he works to understand the marketplace in part by meeting with community and business leaders to "make sure our physicians have good information to make the best decisions."

      Ken is originally from Evansville, Indiana, and graduated from Indiana University. After graduation, he moved to Cincinnati and worked as a certified public accountant (CPA) for an accounting firm for about 10 years. He then spent 15 years working for a multi-specialty physician group that grew to include about 90 providers who cared for about 200,000 patients a year.

      "I enjoy helping physicians achieve their goals,” he said. “RGA is a traditional, independent physician practice with strong values that I can support. They put patients’ needs first and their priorities are in the right places."

      Ken and his wife Cathleen have two children and recently became empty-nesters. They decided it was a good time to make a move. Away from work, he enjoys riding his bike, reading, fishing and learning more about the Rockford area.
