Walmart’s health division makes key leadership appointments

Walmart’s health and wellness division made several key leadership appointments, which were announced by Cheryl Pegus on her LinkedIn.

Walmart is adding several new faces to its Health division’s leadership team, according to a Business Insider report.

According to the report, the retailer tapped David Carmouche, the executive vice president of value-based care and network operations at Ochsner Health, to lead the division.

Though that isn’t the only leadership appointment the omnichannel care network has made.

Cheryl Pegus, the executive vice president of health and wellness at Walmart, has been using LinkedIn to announce new hires within the organization.

Most recently, she shared that Kevin Host would be taking over as senior vice president of pharmacy at Walmart. Prior to joining the retailer, he served as the president and chief operating officer of Avita and held roles at Pharmaceutical Strategies and OptumRX.

Andrea Marks has been appointed vice president of clinical performance of Walmart’s health and wellness team. She previously served as the vice president for the People Analytics Center of Excellence for UnitedHealth Group, and held roles at OptumRX and Catamaran. 

Brian Setzer was appointed chief financial officer of the retailer’s health and wellness division. Prior to taking on this role, Setzer was the executive vice president of enterprise planning and operations at Highmark Health, and has also held roles at Cigna. 

Lastly, John Wigneswaran was named chief medical officer. He was previously the chief medical officer at Express Scripts, and has also held roles at DaVita Kidney Care and Fresenius Medical Care North America. 

News of these hires come on the recent announcement of Walmart Health acquiring telehealth provider MeMD in May.
