Biotronik today said it appointed David Hayes as chief medical officer.
Hayes will be responsible for overseeing the development of the company’s cardiovascular solutions and other innovations that can help physicians and health systems deliver patient care.
“Our focus has always been on the patient. To help patients live their best lives, we remain in constant collaboration with physicians so we can intimately understand the challenges they face every day. Dr. Hayes’s clinical, teaching and publishing accomplishments bring a new level of experience and expertise to the company,” president Ryan Walters said in a news release. “His commitment to understanding the dynamics of patient care, the challenges health systems face and the impact of technology aligns perfectly with our focus on expanding partnerships with physicians and institutions throughout the United States. With Dr. Hayes on our team, we’re positioned to set a new standard in delivering cardiovascular care.”
Hayes most recently served as the medical director of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. He has more than 40 years of experience with Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. where he held a number of roles in cardiovascular medicine.
“This is an opportunity for me to drive change and create positive patient impact from a very different perspective,” Hayes said. “As the chief medical officer of Biotronik, I have assumed a role rooted in collaboration, understanding and action. We’re ready to challenge norms and shake things up. Cardiology is an area of healthcare that should always be evolving and advancing. We’re making sure that happens. I’m personally committed to ensuring physicians know they have a trusted partner in Biotronik.”
