Physician returns to MLHS

October 8, 2020

Dr. Rod Hayes is returning to Mille Lacs Health System’s family of care as a family practice physician.

Hayes previously worked for the health system from 1993 to 2013. In 2013 he took a position at the St. Cloud VA Health Care System. “I had worked previously with the VA and I always thought I would like to go back to serve the veterans of our country,” Hayes said.

He worked there until his retirement, but has now stepped back into healthcare. He will be seeing patients at the Hillman (Richardson Corner) clinic every Monday.

“I have a daughter in college, so that factors into the equation,” Hayes mused. “But more importantly, I really always imagined coming back to my little clinic at Richardson Corner. I thought that would be a great way to round out a career, and to come back feels very rewarding.”

Dr. Hayes will be practicing family medicine and MLHS is proud to welcome him back.
