Three of the country’s best-known business leaders have turned to Dr. Atul Gawande, a Boston surgeon and best-selling author, to head their new company aimed at reinventing how health care is delivered.
In announcing Gawande’s appointment Wednesday, investor Warren Buffett, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said their still emerging and still unnamed health care venture will be based in Boston. It remains unclear what exactly the company will do, but Gawande’s appointment suggests it is aiming high.
