UTICA, NY – Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente has appointed a new director to lead the Oneida County Health Department.

Picente announced Monday that Dr. Dan Gilmore has been tapped to replace Phyllis Ellis, who announced her retirement last week.

Gilmore has been the Director of Environmental Health for the county since 2007. Prior to his correct position, Gilmore worked in the field of forestry and natural resources for 25 years. He has a master’s degree in public health and a doctorate in forestry and natural resources.

“Dan Gilmore has been a valuable member of our Health Department for the past 13 years and he will do a tremendous job leading it through these tumultuous times,” Picente said. “His expertise, knowledge and experience will provide for a smooth leadership transition and continued steady response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.”

“I am honored to have been selected by County Executive Picente to lead our Health Department and am looking forward to building upon the solid foundation that was laid before me,” Gilmore said. “I know that we have an excellent team in place that is ready to meet the needs of this community and will continue to give its all to secure the health and safety of the residents of Oneida County.”

Ellis will retire on December 16 after serving as Oneida County Director of Health for seven years.
