Axia Women’s Health names nationally recognized physician as CEO

Dayal brings vast experience in health system leadership and value-based health care to growing independent women's health group

Axia Women’s Health appointed Dr. Gaurov Dayal as the company’s new CEO. Dayal was appointed to the Axia board of directors earlier this year and assumes a CEO role held since 2017 by Charlie Choi, who will serve as an adviser to the company during the transition.

Dayal most recently served as president and chief operating officer of Everside Health, one of the largest direct primary care providers in the U.S., with almost 400 clinics across 34 states.

Prior to joining Everside, Dayal held senior leadership roles for the last 15 years at ChenMed, SSM Healthcare and Adventist Health Care. He also has experience at the clinical practice level, as the founder and physician at a pediatric hospitalist group.

“Dr. Dayal is a nationally recognized physician leader, with significant expertise in value-based health care and a strong track record of running and rapidly growing national medical groups,” Eileen Auen, lead independent director for Axia Women’s Health, said. “We are confident he will bring the perfect mix of experience to lead Axia forward on our collective strategy and vision as we continue to expand and position ourselves to be a leader in value-based care.”

“I’m honored to have been selected as the next CEO of Axia Women’s Health, a company with a strong reputation and a tremendous promise for continued growth and quality care outcomes for women,” Dayal said. “I’m looking forward to applying my experience in working directly with doctors and all team members to achieve our mission to create a more caring, connected and progressive women’s health care community. The team has done an incredible job in positioning us for growth and to embrace value-based care. I look forward to helping Axia continue to lead the way in women’s health.”
