"I understand people's investments in a particular name. I tried to pick a name, the Rose Garden, that was something like the Boston Garden or Madison Square Garden, there was something in those names that appealed to me as having some permanence. We'll see what happens."

Moda Health was founded in 1955. It offer s medical, dental, pharmacy and vision plans to two million members who are based in the U.S. northwest states of Oregon and Washington as well as Alaska.
