In December 2009, Amanda Bell walking into Fesut Manor; this time as an adult instead of as a 6 year old little girl chasing her mom, Mary Kent, who was also one a medical record supervisor for Festus Manor. Amanda has maintained electronic medical records while working closely with the nursing staff and our facility physicians to assure the residents’ health information is accurate and meets the state requirements.
While Amanda’s primary role wasn’t business office manager, Amanda felt the opportunity to extend her relationships and grow her knowledge was a great way to begin a new chapter here at Festus Manor.
One of the many goals Amanda has implemented so far is responding and networking with residents and their loved ones. Amanda encourages residents and their families to contact the business office to reach a better understanding of their financials to ensure a smooth line of communication. We have a new team, new goals and have always had a concrete foundation. I am pround to be part of Festus Manor and look forward to the positive changes to bettwe your loved one’s experience.
