Pender Community Hospital & Medical Clinics welcomes Chelsea (Brinkman) Moore, PA-C to their list of providers. She will primarily care for patients in the PCH emergency department. As a passionate, skilled medical professional and native of Pender, she will be an invaluable asset to the healthcare system.

Chelsea recently graduated from UNMC and is excited to be able to start her career in the same place that rooted her desire to help others. Being born and raised in Pender made it an easy decision to return and give back to the community that has supported her throughout her education.

“The desire to help others and also expand my knowledge in the ever-changing field of medicine is what inspired me to become a Physician Assistant,” Chelsea shared.

Pender Community Hospital was the first critical access hospital in the state to offer robotic-assisted surgery, making expert care and state-of-the-art technology accessible where it’s closer for patients and their families. Relationships with outreach surgeons like Dr. Volz, combined with advanced technology, PCH provides patients with the expert services they need, and the local, personalized care they’ve always trusted.

She will be stepping into a new role at PCH that will further support their mission to provide the highest quality care for patients. Her main care focus will be within the ER, where she will provide daytime coverage four days a week and night coverage twice a month. This will allow other providers to focus on patients at the medical clinic. Chelsea will also provide clinic coverage as needed.

The addition of another full-time provider at PCH is a great benefit to patients, staff and the community.

In her downtime, Chelsea enjoys spending time with her husband Spencer, their corgi Archie, and friends and family. She also enjoys cooking, watching movies, reading books, and being outdoors as much as possible through camping and hiking.
