Amy, tell us a little about your organization:
 
 Manning Regional Healthcare Center (MRHC) is a critical access hospital located in Manning, Iowa. Our organization is comprised of the hospital itself (17 beds), a substance abuse recovery center (Manning Family Recovery Center - 16 beds), a long term care facility (Manning Plaza – 56 beds), and a physician’s clinic. Building on a tradition of service that has spanned more than 80 years, MRHC provides state-of-the-art, convenient, all-inclusive medical care to residents of West Central Iowa.
 
What HFMA resources are you utilizing to help you deal with a changing healthcare landscape?
 
Our membership in HFMA is invaluable. Various members of our revenue cycle team attend on site conferences as well as subscribe to multiple HFMA publications in order to stay up-to-date on the latest news, laws, and regulations in our field and to help us proactively adapt to the constant changes we see in healthcare day in and day out.
 
What attributes drew you to your organization and what attributes keep you here?
 
It doesn’t hurt that I come to work at a beautiful brand new facility each day, but it’s our best in class employees and seeing the positive impact they have on our community that keep me energized and proud to serve at this organization. 
 
How is your organization preparing for an uncertain future?
 
The need for healthcare is not going away anytime soon, but the future of how care is delivered and how providers are paid for their services is what is keeping us on our toes. We are constantly evaluating and expanding service lines based on our community needs. We have recently started a geriatric psychiatry program in addition to partnering with our mental health region to provide tele-psychiatry services in our emergency department. By adapting to the current and future needs of our patients, we have created greater accessibility to care, particularly mental health, which is a growing need not only in our region, but nation-wide.  A continued forward-thinking approach will be imperative for us to continue to be successful in a challenging healthcare environment.
 
Thank you, Amy for sharing your story!
