Longtime Haverhill Physician Carl Rosenbloom to Retire From City Health Board

Longtime Haverhill physician Dr. Carl F. Rosenbloom has resigned from the city’s health board, Mayor James J. Fiorentini said Friday. His tenure ends on March 31.

A pediatric physician at Pentucket Medical, Rosenbloom has served on the city’s three-person board since the mid-1980s after being appointed by then Mayor William H. Ryan.

“Dr. Rosenbloom represented the city with honor and distinction and was an outstanding member of the Board of Health for many decades,” Fiorentini said. “He is defender and promoter of the city of Haverhill and has been an outstanding public servant for a very long time. It’s going to be very difficult to replace him.”

The city is actively looking to fill Rosenbloom’s spot on the board and Fiorentini is hopeful a candidate with a public health background will step up. The new member would serve a three-year term alongside current members Peter Carbone and Dr. Alexander Matolcsy of Holy Family Hospital.

“I’m looking for someone who can help expand the board’s role in vaccine clinics and developing strong public health programs around nutrition, exercise and other quality of life issues,” the mayor said, adding that candidates need not be medical doctors.
