Choctaw Regional Medical Center recently hosted a 2-day Palliative Care Symposium on the hospital campus.

The event featured guest speakers Jackie Nason with Kindred Hospice, Michelle Lowe with Halcyon Hospice, and Lacee Jones with Spring Valley Palliative Care. The public was encouraged to participate in open dialogue regarding concepts of hospice, death and dying, powers of attorney, advance directives, and living wills/5 Wishes. Representatives from The Alzheimer’s Association and Generations Care were also in attendance and offered information on their services, and access to resources and answered guests’ questions. Refreshments were served and door prizes were given away.

The symposium’s organizer, CRMC Director of Social Services, Stephanie Black, stated, “The purpose of the symposium was to educate and provide information on the leading causes of death in Choctaw County, which are heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and COPD. We also wanted to make the community aware of resources that are available, how to access them, and the importance of pre-planning for future medical events.” Stephanie added, “We would like to thank our speakers, vendors, and those who attended the event. A special thank you to The Coffee Shop of Ackerman, Forget Me Not Florist, Glam 39735 Nutrition, Choctaw Regional Medical Center, Louisville Medical Clinic, Kindred Hospice, Generations Care, and Halcyon Hospice for generously donating prizes that were given away at the end of each day.”

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Falan McKnight has joined the Louisville Medical Clinic practice. A native of Weir, MS.

Dr. McKnight graduated from the Mississippi School for Math and Science and continued on to The University of Mississippi. After a brief stint studying Forensic Science at Ole Miss, she transferred to Mississippi State before graduating with a Medical Laboratory Technologist certificate from Vanderbilt University. While working as a MLT at Baptist – Golden Triangle, Dr. McKnight felt called to further her education. Upon acceptance into the M.D. program at UMMC, she knew she had found her calling.

Dr. McKnight always knew she wanted to practice family medicine in a rural setting. When the opportunity at LMC presented itself, she could not pass up the opportunity to follow her passion and be close to home. “I want to treat my patients from cradle to grave.” Dr. McKnight says. “In medical school, women’s health and geriatrics were my favorite specialties. Family medicine allows me to expand on those services and treat the entire patient.” In addition to seeing patients at LMC, she is also rounding on residents at Choctaw Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
The daughter of Jeff and Liz McKnight of Weir, Dr. McKnight has recently purchased a home in Choctaw County. With chickens, doves, and three dogs already on the property, she hopes to add more animals in the future, with plans to have a homestead. In what little spare time she has, Dr. McKnight enjoys crocheting, knitting, drawing, and cooking. Her adventurous side loves kayaking and, after many years away, being close to family is her favorite thing about being home.

Hospital CEO, Steve Marinelli, is excited about the addition of Dr. McKnight to the CRMC family. “Louisville Medical Clinic has an outstanding reputation for providing an extremely high level of care for its patients and I have no doubt she will continue that standard of care. Dr. McKnight is the perfect example of our motto “Neighbors Caring for Neighbors” and we welcome her to our staff.”

Dr. McKnight sees patients Monday – Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm and is accepting new patients. Call (662)773-7500 to schedule your appointment today.
