Hastings Prince Edward Public Health will be running a mumps booster clinic March 20th at the Marmora Medical Centre. You do not need to be a patient at the clinic to take advantage of this booster. Public health is recommending everyone born between 1970 – 1992 receive a second dose, as they likely only received one as a child.
The only people in this age bracket who should not get the mumps booster are pregnant women and those patients on immunosuppressive medications (for example, methotrexate, humira, prednisone) and those with immunosuppressive conditions (bone marrow transplant). Those patients rely on the rest of us to be immunized so they don’t get sick.

Marmora and Lake – The Municipality is excited to announce it will welcome a new doctor to the Marmora Medical Centre as part of the Central Hastings Family Health time within the next year.

Payman Charkhzarin, a resident medical student at the University of Ottawa, is the eleventh doctor to sign with Hastings County’s Family Physician Recruitment Program. The initiative provides financial incentives to doctors who agree to practice medicine in Hastings County for a minimum of five years.

“I am very excited to be coming back to Hastings County to begin my practice,” said Charkhzarin who did a placement in the area during his third year of studies. “I feel a strong connection to the area after my positive experiences here.”

Charkhzarin will finish his residency next year before settling in Marmora to practice family medicine alongside Dr. Melissa Holowaty.

Marmora and Lake lost one if its physicians, Dr. Anne Muscat, in 2015. For more than a year, Dr. Holowaty has been juggling a patient load of more than 2,000 people.

“We are so proud of Doctor Holowaty and thankful for everything she has done for the residents in our community,” said Mayor Terry Clemens. “We are thrilled with the news that Dr. Charkhzarin will be joining us next year and relieving some of Dr. Holowaty’s patient load.”

Charkhzarin visited the community in early January as the result of intense doctor recruitment efforts by the Marmora Medical Centre Advisory Committee.

“It’s a relief to know there is now an agreement in place for a new doctor to begin practicing here in the near future,” said Clemens.
