Kaiser Permanente’s 2022 Rose Parade float, “A Healthier Future,” won the Theme Award for most outstanding presentation of the Rose Parade Theme in the 133rd installment of the event.
“Kaiser Permanente is honored to receive the Theme Award, and we hope our float inspires the next generation by honoring our health care workers who show us what is possible every day,” Greg Adams, Kaiser’s chair and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
The 55-foot-long float had a deck garden covered in 15,000 hot pink Floyd roses and featured four children who represented health care innovators, researchers, nurses and doctors and the students of Kaiser Permanente’s Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine in Pasadena.
Surrounding the deck edge was a combination of orange and hot pink roses, carnations, orchids, lilies, alstroemeria and ornamental kale.
The 2022 Rose Parade marked Kaiser’s 16th year of participation.
Kaiser has health facilities and hospitals in Woodland Hills, Panorama City, Antelope Valley and other parts of the San Fernando Valley region.
