Kaiser Permanente has confirmed that their chief executive and chairman, Bernard J. Tyson, died in his sleep early Sunday at age 60. His cause of death is unclear.
Tyson succeeded George Halvorson as chief executive in 2013 and had led the health care corporation for the last six years. Tyson was the company’s first black chief executive since it was founded in 1945. In its statement, Kaiser Permanente described Tyson as an “outstanding leader, visionary and champion for high-quality, affordable health care.”
Tyson spent 34 years with Kaiser Permanente in various roles, including as a hospital administrator, according to his company biography. He received a bachelor’s degree in health service management from Golden Gate University in San Francisco and held a number of roles in the community.
