Geisinger Health System CEO David Feinberg is set to exit the health system, which serves some 1.5 million people, to join Google’s health care ventures, FierceHealthcare reports.
The health system appointed Jaewon Ryu, executive vice president and CMO, as the interim president and CEO beginning Dec. 1, according to the report.
Feinberg is expected to play a key role in bolstering Google’s dive into health care, which includes products like Google Fit and Google Nest.
“Together, we have improved patient and member experience, along with our quality of care, employee engagement and physician and nurse recruitment, and our legacy of innovation has blossomed,” Feinberg said in a statement. “I know that I am leaving Geisinger in capable hands as the leadership team continues to advance Geisinger’s important mission of taking care of the people we serve.”
