For more than two decades, surgeon, writer, and public health leader Atul Gawande has straddled the intersection of direct patient care and population-level impact, asking a fundamental question: How do we fix health care systems to deliver better care for every person everywhere' With his insistence that solutions must be simple, affordable, and scalable across diverse settings, Gawande is widely recognized for leading the development of system innovations that have improved care for hundreds of millions of patients globally.
Now, as the CEO of the Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase health organization, he is developing scalable solutions for health care delivery demonstrated to achieve better outcomes, more satisfaction, and greater cost efficiency with their population of more than one million employees and family members. At the heart of his work is a commitment to the highest principle of medicine: All people have lives of equal worth.
For more than 20 years, he has been a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a professor at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School. He is the founder and chairman of Ariadne Labs, a joint center for health systems innovation, and chairman of Lifebox, a nonprofit organization making surgery safer globally.
Gawande has also been a staff writer for The New Yorker magazine since 1998 and written four New York Times best selling books: Complications, Better, The Checklist Manifesto, and Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. He is the winner of two National Magazine Awards, AcademyHealth’s Impact Award for highest research impact on healthcare, a MacArthur Fellowship, and the Lewis Thomas Award for writing about science.
Gawande lives with his wife of twenty-five years in Newton, MA. They have three children.
