Lansdale, PA (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Dr. Winifred S. Hayes, President and CEO of Hayes, Inc. (http://www.hayesinc.com), a leader in promoting better health outcomes through the use of evidence, is pleased to announce that Dr. David Wade will join the executive team effective October 6, 2014, as Vice President, Chief Medical Officer. In this role, Dr. Wade will be responsible for providing clinical and scientific oversight to ensure content and practice relevance and accuracy across all Hayes products and services. As a member of the Strategic Team, Dr. Wade also will be actively involved in product development.
“Dave is both a competent clinician and a respected physician executive who understands the challenges that affect the U.S. healthcare system today,” says Dr. Hayes. “He brings insight, knowledge, and experience that will serve us well as we seek to grow and expand our product portfolio with resources that will enable healthcare systems, hospitals, and managed care organizations to make sound clinical and financial decisions. Dave is a proven leader and change agent.”
Dr. Wade, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, comes to Hayes following a distinguished career with the U.S. Navy and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He completed his general surgical residency at Naval Regional Medical Center, Portsmouth, VA, and his surgical oncology fellowship at Roswell Park Memorial Institute, Buffalo, NY. For six years before joining Hayes, Dr. Wade served as the Chief Medical Officer of the FBI, where he managed health system operations and developed healthcare policy. Prior to working for the FBI, he held numerous leadership positions within the Navy Medical Department. As he concluded his distinguished military career, Dave successfully planned the merger of the National Naval Medical Center (Bethesda Naval Hospital) and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He also led efforts to integrate these icons of military medicine—no small feat given the differing hospital cultures and resistance to change associated with the proud heritage of the two institutions. Most recently, Dr. Wade collaborated with nationally recognized surgical leaders to formulate improved health system responses to enhance survivability following active shooter events and other explosive-related mass casualty occurrences.
In addition to providing clinical, scientific, and change management guidance and support, Dr. Wade will be responsible for identifying new opportunities in target markets, developing strategic initiatives, and ensuring that high-quality standards are met for all Hayes products.
