Dan Trigub, who for the last two years has led Uber Health, is leaving the ride-sharing giant to start his own health care company, he wrote in an email to his contacts, the text of which was shared with STAT. His last day with the company is Tuesday.
Trigub has steered Uber Health, which launched in 2018, through a period of rapid growth. Like rival Lyft, the company has built out a business focused on non-emergency medical transportation, using its platform to allow providers and patients to schedule rides to medical appointments. During Trigub’s tenure, Uber Health has partnered with more than 1,000 health care organizations to expand its medical transportation business.
A spokesperson for Uber Health confirmed Trigub is leaving the company. Uber has not yet named a replacement to lead its health business. Trigub did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
