Health-care leaders mourn Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson, who unexpectedly died at age 60

Kaiser Permanente chairman and CEO Bernard Tyson died unexpectedly in his sleep Sunday, the health care giant announced. One of the nation's leading health care executives, Tyson was 60.

He rose through the ranks during a 30-year career at Kaiser to become CEO in 2013. Over his tenure, the integrated health care system and health insurance giant grew from 9 million members, with more than 174,000 employees, to serve more than 12 million members with a workforce of 218,000. Under his leadership, the nation's largest non-profit health system became a leading advocate in the movement to improve the delivery on care and benefits in the U.S.

His sudden passing elicited an outpouring of remembrances from fellow health-care leaders.

Tyson's most recent push has been in the area of social determinants of health, economic and social issues in lower income communities which have negative impact the health patients. Last spring, Kaiser launched a $200 million fund to help address some of those issues in the Bay Area, half of which would address affordable housing and homelessness.

Tyson served on the boards of the American Heart Association and Salesforce.com, and helped steer the World Economic Forum's Global Challenge on the Future of Health.

1. ..."the nation's largest non-profit health system"...

3.8 billion in profits last year. How do they get away calling it a "non-profit"?

3. Too bad he didn't have Medicare For All, instead of

the shit private health insurance he had.

He might'a still be alive today.









Yes, Agnes, its satire. I know he was rich and could afford all the health care he wanted, instead of having to rely on shitty private insurance that denies treatment for proletariat like you and me.
