CVS Hires Doctor From Health Startup in Sign of Medical Ambition

  • Marc-David Munk joins CVS MinuteClinics unit from Iora Health
  • CVS is buying insurer Aetna, hopes to integrate medical care

CVS Health Corp. is hiring a senior executive from a startup that specializes in primary-care clinics, a sign that the drugstore chain is serious about providing more medical services directly to consumers as it moves toward acquiring health insurer Aetna Inc.

Marc-David Munk will become CVS’s chief medical officer for its MinuteClinics, and will oversee “expanded health-care services across the CVS Health enterprise,” the pharmacy and drug-benefits manager said in a statement Friday. Munk was previously chief medical officer at Iora Health, a startup that operates about two dozen physician practices.
