  • Google is about to hire Geisinger Health CEO David Feinberg
    to lead its healthcare efforts,
    The Wall Street Journal
    reported Thursday. 
  • The Journal reports Feinberg’s role will be to coordinate all
    of the healthcare-related initiatives Google already has
    underway. 

Google is reportedly expected to hire Geisinger Health CEO David
Feinberg to a new role leading the company’s healthcare
efforts. 


The Wall Street Journal reported
Thursday that Feinberg’s
role will be to coordinate the health initiatives Google has
underway, including the work happening in artificial intelligence
and devices. 

Feinberg has been at Geisinger since 2015. Prior to that he
served as CEO of UCLA’s health system.

A representative from Google did not immediately return a request
for comment. A Geisinger spokesman declined to comment.

Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has a number of bets in
healthcare from Verily, its life sciences arm that’s developing
everything from glucose-monitoring contact lenses to surgical
robots, to Calico, its
life-extension spinoff.
 Google AI has some projects

in the healthcare space
as well as through DeepMind.

The company has also made a number of investments in healthcare
through its venture funds GV and Capital G as well as through

Alphabet itself

This isn’t the first time Feinberg has had a brush with tech. In
June,
CNBC reported
 that he was in talks to lead the Amazon,
Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan healthcare joint venture. That
role ultimately went to Dr. Atul Gawande.
