Mary Schimp, PA-C

Penn Highlands Elk is pleased to welcome Mary Schimp, PA-C, to its medical staff. Ms. Schimp is seeing patients at the QCare Cameron County facility, located on North Broad Street in downtown Emporium.

“I am excited to be working at QCare in Emporium, to help out within the community and to provide another option for healthcare,” said Schimp.

Ms. Schimp received both her bachelor’s degree and her master’s in physician assistant science from Gannon University. While there, she was on the dean’s list eight semesters.

Ms. Schimp worked for two years in occupational health at Hanover Works. She worked with local employers to keep their staff members healthy and provided services like treating work-related injuries and providing physicals. During that time, she also worked for Hanover Medical Group’s Express Care, an urgent care center similar to the QCare clinics offered by Penn Highlands Healthcare. She served a patient population of all ages from pediatrics to geriatrics in a walk-in setting. She managed illnesses and provided injections, wound care, splitting, suturing and gynecologic exams.

Most recently, Schimp was employed by the Olean General Hospital and worked in the emergency department. This experience has given Ms. Schimp a broad knowledge of the critical care environment.

No appointment is needed to visit QCare. The office is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is closed weekends and holidays. QCare Cameron County also offers on-site laboratory, X-ray and physician therapy services.
