On Sunday, Bernard Tyson, Chairman, and CEO of Kaiser Permanente was remembered in Oakland, California. Last Sunday, Tyson passed away in his sleep at the age of 60.
During the open viewing held at the Rotunda, a day before the private funeral in San Francisco, Tyson was remembered for his compassion and dedication to diversity and inclusion.
Throughout Tyson’s 30+ year career at Kaiser, he made it a point in his career to focus on an individual’s healthcare.
“And that was what he drove…like, we’re going to take care of you when you’re well so you don’t get sick, whereas everybody else is saying we’re just going to charge you for transactions and procedures,” said Ben Horowitz, Tyson’s friend and Founding Partner of venture capital firm Andreeson Horwitz, according to CBS.
