Tyson, chairman and chief executive officer of nonprofit healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente, died Sunday in his sleep. He'd since increased the organization's revenue and boosted membership in its insurance plans. "We all will miss his tremendous presence in our lives", the company said in a statement.

Due to the death, the company's board of directors named Gregory A. Adams, Executive Vice President and Group President, as interim Chairman and CEO.

Tyson's ascent to the CEO role coincided with the implementation of President Obama's Affordable Care Act, a transformative time in American healthcare.
