Moving to Cheyenne, he started a urology practice and went on to become Vice chief of staff and Chairman of Patient Care at DePaul Hospital of Cheyenne. He was twice appointed to the Board of Trustees of the University of Wyoming. Hayes serves as President and Chief Medical Officer of Mountain Benefit Associates. He is also a rancher.

Haynes was not be included in the televised debate October 25, 2010 on Wyoming PBS.
"Taylor Haynes did not have enough signatures on his petition, was not qualified by the Secretary of State, and therefore will not appear on the ballot in the gubernatorial race. For this reason, and this reason only, Taylor Haynes will not be invited to participate in the Wyoming PBS general election debates with other gubernatorial candidates," said station General Manager Ruby Calvert.
The public broadcasting station created a policy in 2006 policy governing debates under which participants must be “legally certified by the Wyoming Secretary of State to appear on the statewide ballot for the office,” she said.
"As a partner with Wyoming PBS in these election debates, we support the policy, and don’t believe Taylor Haynes should be invited to debate," Wallis said.
