Maggie Hayes, MD, is an obstetrician/gynecologist with Women's Healthcare Associates, LLC in Portland, Oregon.
“A successful day for me is one where I have made meaningful connections with my patients. Where we have been able to have conversations that help them understand what’s happening and guide how they think and feel about their situation and health. Where I have been able to inform their perspective and support their dignity and autonomy.”
With a love of learning inspired by her mother, Dr. Hayes returned to school to pursue medicine after working with lung cancer and lung transplant patients as a pulmonary technician for 10 years. She draws similarities between the first part of her career and OB/GYN; namely, the opportunity to build long-term relationships with patients and support them through some of the most joyful, challenging and sometimes tragic periods of their lives. She loves the diversity offered by obstetrics and gynecology with its mix of education, medicine, surgery, primary, and specialty care. And, of course—she considers supporting people on the journey to parenthood a unique and magical privilege. Dr. Hayes particularly appreciates caring for people who identify as LGBTQ+ and has a strong interest in transgender and gender-affirming care. She also connects well with adolescents and in working with them, hopes to set the stage for a lifetime of positive, supportive relationships with reproductive healthcare providers.
Dr. Hayes served on the diversity and inclusion board of Rochester Regional Health System where she completed her residency program. She is married and enjoys cycling, swimming and rock climbing.
