Kaiser Permanente mourns the loss of Bernard J. Tyson, Chairman and CEO

During the Essence Fesitval 2019 Convention Center held at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans Louisiana on Friday

"During his tenure, Bernard has focused on public health and preventive care, rather than just treating disease, seeking to provide high-quality, affordable, accessible health care to all of its members", wrote Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.).

Chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson, who was widely praised for his commitment and contributions to holistic affordable care, died on Sunday morning. Most importantly, Bernard was a devoted husband, father and friend.

Kaiser Permanente's annual operating revenue as of June was almost $80 billion, from about $53 billion in 2013, when Tyson was first appointed as CEO.

The company did not give a cause of death.

During his tenure at Kaiser, the company grew its workforce of 174,000 to 218,000 people, and its annual revenue from $53 billion to almost $83 billion. "I'll miss Bernie's keen mind and good nature, as well as his unique ability to rally people from all walks of life around a singular goal of making health care better for all Americans". "On behalf of our Board of Directors, employees and physicians, we extend our deepest sympathies to Bernard's family during this very hard time", Kaiser Permanente said in a 10 November statement. He was appointed Chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente on 6 November 2012.

Executive Committee Chair Edward Pei called Tyson "an exceptional colleague, a passionate leader and an honorable man". It oversees health plans for more than 12 million customers, with about two-thirds of those in California.

"Most CEOs don't leave their corporate offices, change clothes, and have auto doors locked as they walk by or women move to the other side of the street hugging their purses as they see me out exercising".

Tyson had a 30-year career with Kaiser and eventually rose through the ranks to become the CEO in 2013. "While we had our differences, I had tremendous respect for him and his willingness to collaborate with workers to make Kaiser the model provider of medical services in California. With deeper understanding and thoughtful and positive participation, America - and Americans - can live up to our full potential in a country built on diversity of thought, spirit, race and experience".

Gregory Adams, the company's executive vice president and group president, will take over as interim CEO as it searches for new leadership, according to the statement.
