“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Bernard J. Tyson, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and Kaiser Hospitals. Mr. Tyson was a strong leader and advocate for public health who deeply understood the critical value of disease prevention and of health equity. His vision and leadership have left an indelible mark; he will be sorely missed.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Mr. Tyson’s family and colleagues.”
