Meet Lake Taylor’s New Hospice & Palliative Care Fellow, Dr. Jerry McQuain
Through the generous charitable donation of Joan Brock and her late husband Macon, and a partnership with the Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Glennan Center for Geriatrics, the Supportive Care Medicine Program at Lake Taylor was created to help address the medical, social and spiritual issues of patients and families facing multiple chronic and incurable diseases. Dr. Marissa C. Galicia-Castillo, Section Head of Palliative Care Medicine at EVMS and Medical Director of the Supportive Care Medicine Program at Lake Taylor, spearheaded the addition of the program’s first fellowship opportunity.
Dr. Jerry McQuain was introduced as the medical school’s first Hospice & Palliative Care Fellow at an EVMS program in May. The new fellowship restores Lake Taylor as an EVMS teaching hospital. Dr. McQuain, an internist, is training under Dr. Galicia-Castillo and the Palliative Medicine team at EVMS at Lake Taylor and other area locations for one year.
Dr. Jerry McQuain was previously an Internal Medicine physician and part of Sentara Medical Group in Norfolk where he served as a hospitalist. He is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine who graduated from Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Colorado and did his residency at Exempla Saint Joseph Internal Medicine in Denver.
