A top Walmart healthcare executive resigns

Thomas Van Gilder, MD, who has served as Walmart's chief medical officer since 2018, is leaving the company, according to Insider, citing an internal memo sent to employees March 30. 

Dr. Van Gilder's last day will be May 15, a company spokesperson told Insider. He's leaving the retail giant to pursue new opportunities and spend time with his family, according to the report. 

Dr. Van Gilder was hired as Walmart U.S.'s first chief medical officer. He led Walmart Health's first clinical model design and advanced the company's overall health and wellness strategies.

Dr. Van Gilder's resignation comes after Insider reported in February that Walmart may be slowing the ambitious push into healthcare it laid out in 2018.
