About MRHC

Healthcare close to home

For more than 80 years, the community of Manning has maintained a quality hospital, providing local residents with some of the best health care services in west central Iowa. While our hospital has undergone several makeovers and name changes throughout the years, our ultimate goal of providing you and your family with the highest quality of medical care available has never changed.

Manning Regional Healthcare Center is a trusted local provider of high-quality healthcare to the residents of Manning, Manilla, Irwin, Kirkman, and the four-county area of Carroll, Crawford, Shelby, and Audubon counties in Iowa. Our full-service, primary care hospital offers an array of inpatient and outpatient health services designed to provide the personalized care you need close to home.

Manning Regional Healthcare Center’s comprehensive total health care system includes state-of-the-art diagnostic radiology equipment, emergency department care, inpatient medical and surgical treatment, specialty clinics, family practice, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment, skilled nursing services – and much more. 

Our 17-bed facility has been federally designated as a critical access hospital (CAH). To be designated as a CAH, our rural hospital must meet defined criteria outlined in the Conditions of Participation 42CFR485 and subsequent legislative refinements to the program through the BBRA, BIPA and Medicare Modernization Act.

MRHC is a MercyOne affiliate, which allows us to partner with MercyOne-Des Moines through a management and CAH agreement. Manning Regional Healthcare Center Board of Trustees maintains complete control of MRHC operations, while taking advantage of the cost savings, management expertise, and educational offerings available to a larger facility such as MercyOne.
