Stephen Klasko

As an XIR, Stephen Klasko leverages his healthcare and consumer digital health experience to help create meaningful, enduring outcomes for GC’s healthcare portfolio companies and the communities they serve.

Stephen Klasko has a passion for bringing together the fast-moving Silicon Valley mentality with the often tradition-bound academic healthcare system in a way that reduces costs and bridges the gaps of inequity and health disparities. He has been a dean of two medical schools, a CEO of three health systems, and from 2013–2021 was president and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, leading Jefferson to become one the fastest growing academic health centers in the country.

Dr. Klasko is co-creator of the concept “health assurance,” with Hemant Taneja of General Catalyst, and is currently working with GC, Sheba Medical Center and others to transform health care from its traditional focus on sick care, to supporting people as they thrive.

In 2020, the World Economic Forum named him a Distinguished Fellow for the Digital Economy. In 2018, Modern Healthcare named him #2 among the most influential people in healthcare, tied with a group the magazine called “The Disrupters.”

He is a Philadelphia native, married to Colleen Wyse, a fashion industry leader, and has three children, Lynn, David and Jill.
