Andrea Rinaldo joined the Lincoln County Hospital family in 2016. Since that time she has seen patients in both the Lincoln and Sylvan Grove clinics, provided services in the Emergency Department and managed care for our inpatients. Most recently she has accepted the position of Clinic Manager and will continue to provide care for the community.
She began her nursing career in 1986 as a Critical care RN in Tampa, Florida. After spending 18 years in all areas of intensive, cardiac and emergency care she attained her MSN as a Family Nurse practitioner from the University of South Florida in 2004. While attaining her advanced degree she served as an adjunct professor and clinical instructor for her Alma mater, USF, and has been providing emergency and primary care to all ages since.
She and her husband permanently moved to Hunter, Ks in 2014 after spending over 10 years traveling back and forth from Tampa to their rural farm in Hunter. She fell in love with the values and lifestyle of rural Kansas that reflected her upbringing in the farm
region of northern Ky.
She has 2 adult children and 2 children-in-law and when she is not working she enjoys hiking, horses, gardening and spending time with her family
