In addition, emergency room services at St. Peter’s Hospital in Melville may be periodically in temporary disruption over the coming weeks as the SHA works to reschedule coverage. Dr. Mazlouman’s physician colleagues and the SHA will work together to meet the needs of his patients.
The patience and understanding of Dr. Mazlouman’s patients and the residents of Melville and the surrounding area is sincerely appreciated as we work through this difficult time.
Within the past two weeks, Canada has received news of six deaths of physicians, the most recent being that of Dr. Candace Nayman.
All five doctors were based in the Greater Toronto Area, with three practicing at the same hospital. Dr. Mazlouman is from Saskatchewan, which is 1,976 miles total driving distance from Toronto.
Name and date of death:
- Dr. Paul Hannam, July 16
- Dr. Lorne Segall, July 17
- Dr. Stephen McKenzie, July 18
- Dr. Jakub Sawicki, July 19
- Dr. Shariar Jalali Mazlouman, July 23
- Dr. Candace Nayman, July 28
The Gateway Pundit was the first to report that Dr. Paul Hannam, the Chief of Emergency Medicine and Program Medical Director at North York General Hospital (NYGH), died unexpectedly while out for a run.
NYGH claimed that the tragic death of Dr. Paul Hannam was “not related to COVID-19 or vaccinations of any kind”, according to Toronto Sun.
Chief Medical Strategy Officer at Mount Sinai Hospital, Howard Ovens, announced the passing of Dr. Hannam via Twitter.
“Canadian Emergency Medicine is in mourning tonight,” Ovens wrote. “Paul Hannam, Olympic sailor, marathon runner, family man, ED director at NYGH, a sweet, thoughtful, compassionate and gentle man died suddenly today on a run. The quintessential mensch. Hug someone you love.”
On Thursday, The Gateway Pundit reported the deaths of three physicians at Canada’s Trillium Health Partners-Mississauga Hospital who died unexpectedly in the same week.
The three physicians who died the same week after Dr. Hannam were Dr. Lorne Segall (July 17), Dr. Stephen McKenzie (July 18), and Dr. Jakub Sawicki (July 21). According to the nurse who leaked the memo, the three doctors reportedly died after the hospital started mandating the fourth Covid shot for their employees.
Trillium Health Partners finally released a statement and confirmed the deaths of the three physicians.
“It is with deep sadness that THP mourns the loss of three of our physicians who recently passed away,” the hospital announced on Twitter.
“Dr. Jakub Sawicki, Dr. Stephen McKenzie, and Dr. Lorne Segall were respected physicians who dedicated their lives to caring for their patients and community,” the post added.
The hospital claimed that the social media rumor that their deaths were related to the COVID-19 vaccination is “simply not true.”
It was reported that both Dr. Segall and Dr. Sawicki have been fighting cancer for a long time.
On Friday, The Gateway Pundit reported that a 27-year-old triathlete and resident doctor at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, collapsed while swimming. On Thursday, four days after the incident, she passed away.
“Dr. Candace Nayman was a Year 3 Pediatrics Resident at McMaster Children’s Hospital who tragically passed away on Thursday, July 28, 2022,” the obituary read. “Candace was a beloved sister and daughter, a friend and confidant, a mentor and guide, an athlete and coach, and an inspiration to many.”
