World-renowned cardiologist Dr. Henry Ting joined Delta Air Lines in 2021 as the global brand’s Chief Health Officer – a first for a U.S. airline. In his most recent role as Mayo Clinic’s enterprise Chief Value Officer, Dr. Ting became familiar with Delta both as a long-time Medallion customer and, more recently, as a primary COVID-19 advisor who has helped shape Delta’s response since the early days of the pandemic.

From employee testing and cleanliness strategies to operational tactics that reduce the transmission of the virus, Dr. Ting has been a key voice in the health and safety decisions that have helped Delta strengthen the people-first approach we were known for even prior to the pandemic. As part of the Delta team, Dr. Ting is building on this work to help Delta navigate the pandemic and emerge stronger and better prepared for the future.

Working collaboratively with groups across the airline, Dr. Ting leads Delta in reimagining our approach to health and well-being, utilizing new technologies, artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and innovative partnerships.

In addition to his role at Delta, Dr. Ting retains his title as Professor Emeritus at Mayo Clinic.

Before joining Delta, Dr. Ting served at Mayo Clinic’s enterprise Chief Value Officer providing strategic leadership for quality of care, safety, experience, and affordability. He also held several other leadership roles at Mayo Clinic including Clinical Chair of the Department of Cardiology and Associate Dean of Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. Dr. Ting has previously served as senior vice president and Chief Quality Officer at New York Presbyterian Hospital, the University Hospital for Columbia and Cornell. 

Dr. Ting’s academic focus includes health services research, outcomes research and implementation science. He has lectured worldwide and authored over 200 journal articles, book chapters and publications. In addition, he has served on committees and boards for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, National Quality Forum, and U.S. News & World Report.

Dr. Ting received his Bachelor’s Degree in chemistry from Cornell University and Doctorate of Medicine from Harvard Medical School. He completed a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from University of St. Thomas, Health Care Executive certification from Harvard Business School, and certification in Lean, Six Sigma, and Change Management.
