The construction crews are on-site. The asphalt is removed from the former Saint Mary’s and a portion of the Schnitz parking lots. The land is now being prepared for the new building foundation and structure.
When designing the spaces for the new building at Mary Free Bed, enhancing patient care and experience was the number one focus. The construction and renovation team made sure to take the time to gather feedback from patients and employees on how to improve patient rooms.
The Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital Expansion and Renovation Groundbreaking Ceremony was held on April 9, 2013. Over 250 guests attended this historic event, which included comments from Mary Free Bed CEO Kent Riddle, Mary Free Bed Guild President Shelley Mishler, Michigan Director of Community Health Jim Haveman, and Susan Ford Bales.
