Dr. Roy C. Maynard joins Pediatric Home Service as Medical Director
St. Paul, Minn. — Roy Maynard, MD, has joined Pediatric Home Service (PHS) as its Medical Director. Most recently, Dr. Maynard has practiced as a Neonatologist and Pediatric Pulmonologist at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics in Minneapolis, Minn., a position he’s held since 1991. Dr. Maynard will serve as PHS’s resident physician, working with the PHS team to provide quality care to children and their families in their own homes. He’ll also lead implementation of clinical policies, procedures and programs to further enhance the best possible care for each child.
“I’ve known Susan Wingert (PHS Founder and President) for many years,” Dr. Maynard says. “I now welcome the opportunities and challenges of this position with PHS. When my colleagues and I look at discharging a child from the hospital, we ask ‘are we doing anything in the hospital that couldn’t be safely done at home?’ PHS has a similar approach, and their expertise and outstanding reputation are well known.”
Wingert says, “The addition of Roy to the PHS staff and our Senior Leadership team is a great way to begin this year, which is our 20th year in business. His medical service experience will complement our clinical staff, and we look forward to having him on staff to enhance our quality of service.”
Dr. Maynard echoes that view, adding: “Technology advancements such as newer ventilators and other equipment, plus a broader comfort zone with bringing medically fragile children home is helping PHS and home care grow,” he says. “I’m eager to be part of the PHS team, providing clinical and other medical direction to keep kids thriving at home.”
Dr. Maynard grew up in Philadelphia and completed his undergraduate degree at Penn State University. He then attended medical school at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Dr. Maynard performed his residency in pediatrics and his fellowships in neonatology and pediatric pulmonology at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Maynard also completed three years of service at Pine Ridge Indian Hospital in South Dakota as a general pediatrician before pursuing his fellowship training. He is board-certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics in general pediatrics, pediatric pulmonology and neonatology. Dr. Maynard is active with numerous professional societies and associations, including SKIP (Sick Kids Need Involved People), as Medical Director at a Camp for Technologically Dependent Children, SKIP (Minnesota), and is a member of the Minnesota Medical Association.
Dr. Maynard and his wife, Jeanne, have two grown children and reside in Eden Prairie. His avocations include building and operating giant scale radio-controlled airplanes, fly fishing and motorcycle touring. His complete biography is available upon request.
