Dr. Sharon Reilly

Dr. Sharon Reilly

Medical Director

Dr. Sharon A. Reilly graduated from the Medical College of Virginia (now called VCU School of Medicine) in 1997. She completed a rural family practice residency in Blackstone, Va., in June 2000 and started her practice that fall. In 2008, she began practicing in a community health center in Charlotte Court House, Va. In 2012 she married a North Carolinian and moved here in 2015 to begin work in Burlington.

Before medical school, Reilly taught high school biology and chemistry for five years. She was inspired to go to medical school by the thoughtful questions that students asked in biology and chemistry class and by the need for a primary care physician in the rural area where she lived in Virginia.

Reilly grew up in Bowie, Md. She earned a bachelor’s degree from George Mason University in biology with a focus on botany.

Reilly became interested in PACE when it was introduced to the rural area of Virginia where she was practicing.

Outside of work, Reilly enjoys cooking, eating, reading about food, traveling, hiking, gardening, cycling and spending time with her husband, Bob McNeill, and other friends.

Joseph Stanley-Burlington

Burlington Site Director

Joseph Stanley is no stranger to PACE having come from PACE of the Triad in Greensboro. He has a long history of working with PACE programs. In Massachusetts, he oversaw the operations of 2 PACE programs before moving to North Carolina in 2015.

“I have worked at PACE programs in Massachusetts and North Carolina. All programs are filled with experienced, skilled, dedicated health care professionals with the goal of keeping frail elderly participants in the community. I am a big fan of working in partnership with families and care givers to prevent nursing home placement. We all know people thrive more in their home setting. I see this as a Win – Win situation. There is genuine team work within the PACE Interdisciplinary Team, and true collaboration with the Participant and Care Givers. I wish this philosophy of providing health care could be replicated to all populations throughout the country.”

Mr. Stanley is married with two adult sons. He is a lifelong city resident, who is now enjoying a taste of country life with large gardens and raising chickens. Stanley is replacing Crystal Torain, who is moving into a new role as Director of Nursing for Piedmont Health Services, Inc.
