Bernard J. Tyson is the chairman and CEO of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and Hospitals — known as Kaiser Permanente, one of America’s leading integrated health care providers and not-for-profit health plans. In 2018, the company generated almost $80 billion in revenue.

Tyson assumed the role of chairman in January 2014 and has served as CEO since 2013. His career at Kaiser Permanente has spanned more than 34 years, and he has successfully managed all major aspects of the organization during this time, serving in roles from hospital administrator and division president to chief operating officer of the Oakland, California-based national health care organization.

Under Tyson’s leadership, Kaiser Permanente continues to lead and set the expectation for delivering affordable, accessible, high-quality health care and improving the health of its members and the 66 million residents in its communities. The organization is delivering on the promise of its “Thrive” campaign by bringing an industry-leading 21st-century approach to health care and coverage that is helping members achieve their aspirations of total health – physical health as well as mental health and wellness. Kaiser Permanente’s 217,000 employees and 22,000 Permanente Medical Group physicians provide personalized, coordinated, and technologically advanced care that consistently delivers some of the best clinical outcomes in the nation, while also leading the country in prevention, cutting-edge treatment, patient safety, and quality.

Tyson’s influence has been felt both nationally and internationally. Time has listed him on its list of the most influential people in the world and named him one of the Health Care 50. Also, in addition to being named by Modern Healthcare as one of the most influential people in health care for 5 consecutive years, he’s been No. 2 on the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare list and on Fast Company’s list of most creative people.

Tyson serves on the boards of directors for the American Heart Association and Salesforce. He is chair of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) chairman of the International Federation of Health Plans, and a steward of the World Economic Forum’s Global Challenge on the Future of Health and Healthcare.

Kevin Harts Condition: Doctors Encouraged

Comedian Kevin Hart is being assessed to see if he will require back surgery following his dramatic crash in the Malibu hills in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Hart, miraculously, walked away from the crash, and was able to go back home before checking himself into an L.A.-area hospital, where he is now under observation.


The other two passengers in the car appear to have also had lucky escapes, despite being trapped in the vehicle for some time: Hart’s friend Jared Black (who was driving) and personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman are both expected to make full recoveries.

Hart could, however, need surgery for major back injuries he suffered in the crash, which saw his vintage Plymouth Barracuda veer off a Mulholland Highway canyon, crashing to the ground ten feet below.

Pictures showed the roof of the car completely sheared off.

Doctors are optimistic that Hart will make a full recovery as he has not suffered “a spinal cord injury,” The Blast reports, adding that he is “able to walk and move his extremities.”

Hart was a passenger in the vintage muscle car, which he bought in July to mark his 40th birthday, when it went off the road and rolled down an embankment.

California Highway Patrol officers said the driver was not under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision, which happened at around 12:45 a.m. Sunday.

The car was turning when the driver “immediately lost control of the vehicle, and the Plymouth left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment,” TMZ said, quoting cops.

Just hours before the crash, Hart had posted a video on Instagram of himself sitting in the car.
