Bernard Tyson, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente

Covered California executive director, Peter V. Lee issued the following statement Sunday, November 10, 2019:

“We at Covered California are deeply saddened by the passing of Bernard Tyson, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente. Bernard’s vision and laser focus on increasing access, quality and affordable health care coverage for all has helped transform Kaiser and had a positive impact on the entire health care system. He truly ‘walked the talk’ in his concern for making health care not just a right, but something that is affordable and centered on the great diversity of patients. His efforts will have a lasting imprint on California and the nation. Our thoughts go out to his family and the broader Kaiser community he led.”
