Ron Friess is no stranger to Dodge City.

Born and raised in Dodge City, Friess graduated in 1995 then went on to receive his bachelor's degree in business after 6 years in the Marines.

Friess was recently named the new administrator to Trinity Manor after work with veteran services.

"I traveled to a lot of nursing homes and worked with veterans and i loved it," Friess said. "With my background in business I knew it was something I wanted to do."

Amanda Hallmark is also new to Trinity Manor becoming the director of nursing.

"I graduated in 1999 in nursing and have lived and worked in the Cimarron/Ingalls area," Hallmark said. "I worked in surgery and was an outpatient supervisor in Scott City as well as in the hospital.

"I then began working at Trinity Manor as the neighborhood director.

"I'm still working on my bachelor's in administration business at Ashford."

Taking over only a few weeks ago, one thing both Friess and Hallmark agree on is keeping things business as usual.

"I don't see any need to make changes," Friess said. "We have a great team, great nursing staff and great care, everyone is excellent here."

Hallmark added, "We just received a great survey. The implementations in place and we appreciate our staff so much for the work they have done."

Trinity Manor currently sees 64 residents with a 82-person staff that provides 24/7 around the clock care.

"We have rehab 6 days a week, and are one of the only facilities with private units for Medicare," Friess said. "Our admissions staff is on 24/7 and is passionate and professional about what they do.

"We welcome visitors when we have events to come and enjoy everything whenever they like."
