Dr. Kameron Matthews
Chief health officer, Cityblock Health
Matthews moved to Cityblock, which provides services to Medicaid and lower- income Medicare beneficiaries, from serving as chief medical officer at the Veterans Health Administration. The startup tapped her in 2022 as a key hire to further its growth, expanding into Indiana later that year. In 2023, Cityblock released an equity report pointing to reduced emergency department visits for some members and high engagement rates for mature dual-eligible cohorts. Like other companies in the digital health space, it recently restructured, cutting 12% of staff across the company in June in a bid to support its long-term success.
