Manly Specialty Care welcomes new administrator
(June, 2020) Kayla Gomez has joined the staff at Manly Specialty Care as Provisional Administrator. She brings with her years of experience working in a variety of roles in skilled nursing care and a wealth of knowledge.
As a child, Gomez often accompanied her grandmother to her job as an activities director in their local long term facility. When she was old enough, she became a CNA, a position she held for 5 years. These experiences led her to study and obtain a bachelor’s degree in health science and a master’s degree in public administration from Aurora University in Aurora, Ill.
“I liked working as a CNA and having those skills to help my patients and families, but I knew there were other ways I could be of service to working in administration,” Gomez said.
“I’m really enjoying the atmosphere here,” Gomez said. “It’s a smaller building so it’s more family-like and we have a really good team.”
Manly Specialty Care is a non-profit, 43-bed skilled nursing facility offering rehabilitation services, skilled nursing care, long term care and hospice care. Manly Specialty Care is a 2018 recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) and also earned deficiency free status for 2019 by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals.
