Revised Business Office Policies

W.J. Mangold Memorial Hospital and the Cogdell Clinics have revised some of the business office policies to strengthen the ability to collect past account balances and continue to provide services to residents of our community. At any time that the patient has an outstanding patient account balance from previous services and regular minimum payments are not being made, patient will be required to make one minimum monthly payment along with their current co-pay/deductible/coinsurance prior to service being rendered. If patient is unable or unwilling to do so, they will be asked to re-schedule their appointment for a later time when they are able to make such required payments. If the accumulated outstanding balances exceed $500, and regular minimum monthly payments are not being made, they will be required to visit with the Chief Financial Officer, Butch Forrest, about their outstanding balance prior to receiving treatment and appointment will be rescheduled for a later date. Copies of these policies can be viewed under the "About Us" section of this website under Business Office Policies.

Lockney, Texas, December 2022 - As part of the National Rural Health Day celebration, W.J. Mangold Memorial Hospital was recognized with a 2022 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Patient Perspective. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (e.g., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.

"This award is confirmation of the hard work and excellent service provided by our physicians, advance practice providers and staff", stated Vince DiFranco Hospital CEO.

W.J Mangold Memorial Hospital and Cogdell Clinics Adopt New Patient-Friendly Cardiac Digital Health Solution for Early AFib Detection and Diagnosis

W.J. Mangold Memorial Hospital has integrated innovative wearable ECG technology from Cardiac Insight, Inc., expanding its offerings to patients to better diagnose atrial fibrillation (AFib or AF), the most common type of treated heart arrhythmia, both in-office and through telehealth. An estimated 2.7 to 6.1 million people in the U.S. live with this arrhythmia. While AFib itself is typically not life-threatening, complications from AFib include increased risk for heart problems and heart failure, and increased risk for stroke.

The Cardea SOLO™ disposable wearable ECG sensor is applied to the patient at our Clinic. After a seven-day wear period, the patient returns the sensor to our office by mail or in person. Cardea SOLO's algorithm-based software automatically analyzes ECG data to detect abnormal rhythms including AFib. Within five minutes of connecting the patient's sensor to the Cardea SOLO, a comprehensive report is produced to direct clinical decision-making and begin treatment, if required, as soon as possible.

For more information, please contact Elvia Holguin, Clinic Manager or make an appointment to see your primary care provider in Lockney at 806-652-3373 or Silverton at 806-475-5800.

WJ Mangold Memorial Hospital Lowers P.T. Prices

At it's meeting on April 28th , the Lockney General Hospital District Board received a report from CEO Vince DiFranco showing price comparisons of Physical Therapy services with various other hospitals. Based on that data, the Board decided to lower Physical Therapy (PT) charges on key and frequently used services by 20% to 30%.

"I had heard complaints about our PT charges from patients that wanted to use our services", stated DiFranco. "With many hospitals publishing their chargemaster on their website, I was able to research and compare charges for Physical Therapy". "We have excellent staff in our Physical Therapy Department and have great outcomes with patients, so it was disappointing to hear that some patients were seeking care elsewhere only because of cost", he said.

The WJ Mangold Physical Therapy Department offers many services to improve function and mobility for patients including recovery from sports injuries and surgery. They are also the only facility in the region with a certified pelvic physical therapist to assist patients in pelvic issues such as pelvic pain, incontinence, pre/post partum issues, and prostate issues.

The research DiFranco performed confirmed that the patient feedback was accurate. He then prepared a report with a recommendation that prices be adjusted to more closely match the charges at other facilities. "I appreciate that patients called to share their experience with me", DiFranco said, "now we have removed that reason and more people can use our excellent PT Department".
