Dr. Ethan Toumishey

Dr. Ethan Toumishey has been named the new Medical Officer of Health for Hastings Prince Edward counties.

Dr. Toumishey has been the acting Medical Officer of Health and CEO at HPEPH since October when Dr. Piotr Oglaza moved to Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Public Health as their MOH.

Before taking on the acting MOH role, Toumishey was hired as director of clinical programs at HPEPH after completing his residency in Public Health and Preventive Medicine in June 2021.

“Dr. Toumishey’s medical expertise and leadership have been invaluable during his tenure as acting medical officer of health over the past several months, and we are very pleased that he will continue to lead the team at HPEPH,” said Jo-Anne Albert, chair of the Board of Health. “He has demonstrated strong and steady leadership in the face of the pandemic and during the selection process it quickly became evident that he not only has the skills and training necessary for this challenging role, but also has the vision and passion to advocate for public health and the important role it plays in keeping our residents safe and healthy.”

Toumishey has a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Ottawa, graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine from Dalhousie University, and completed a Masters in Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Queen’s University and met the requirements for fellowship with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in June 2021. He has worked as an independent family physician and is also a guest lecturer at Queen’s University.

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) is a public health agency that serves the counties of Hastings and Prince Edward from four local offices.
