RestorixHealth’s highest achievement, the Center of Excellence Award, distinguishes centers that have demonstrated exceptional success by meeting or exceeding clinical, operational and financial benchmarks in different categories, including healing outcomes, assessment and care processes, debridement, vascular assessment and patient safety, along with a patient satisfaction rate of 96% or higher. 225 clinics were considered for this award and MRHC’s Wound Care Clinic was one of ten selected as a recipient.

Dr. Thang Luong and Kendra Tiefenthaler, RNThe Wound Care Clinic at MRHC celebrated its one-year anniversary of providing services to the Manning-area.  “In this fiscal year alone we have serviced 69 patients with varying degrees of wounds,” said Kendra Tiefenthaler. “It is rewarding to see so many patients being treated for wounds they may have had for days, months or even years.”

The Manning Regional Healthcare Center Wound Clinic is dedicated to optimizing outcomes and preventing lower limb loss in those patients with non-healing wounds. The approach to wound care is aggressive and comprehensive, coordinating traditional and advanced therapies and techniques that are proven to reduce healing time and improve healing rates. Since non-healing wounds rarely result from a single cause, the Wound Care Clinic begins with a thorough evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine the underlying cause of the wound. A treatment plan is then developed to give patients the best chance for healing. Most treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance.

Manning’s clinic is staffed by Dr. Thang Luong, Kendra Tiefenthaler, RN and supported by Liesa Meishlahn, RN and Taylor Potthoff, RN. Integrating a team of wound care professionals optimizes patient care, while offering the most advanced healing options.

The MRHC Wound Care Clinic is every Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information about our treatment plans, please call (712) 655-2072.
