Need to contact a patient who is staying at Mary Free Bed?

Wish to brighten a loved one’s day with a fresh bouquet of flowers?

Below is information to help you stay in touch with a friend or family member, or to share a gift of encouragement and cheer.

How to Email a Patient

Friends and family may send email to a patient at Mary Free Bed. The email will be printed by a staff member, placed in a sealed envelope and delivered to the appropriate patient. Please note: Animated greetings do not print well. We suggest that e-cards have little or no animation so the entire message can be printed on paper.

Send an email directly through any email account:

  • In the “To” field, type: patient@maryfreebed.com
  • In the “Subject” field, type the patient’s full name so we know who should receive the email
  • Type message and send

Please note: Your message may be viewed by a staff member during printing

How to Send Mail to a Patient

Direct mail to this address:

Patient name
Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital
235 Wealthy St. SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49503-5299

Please note that patient privacy laws prohibit Mary Free Bed staff from giving out patient room numbers. Our staff will ensure your correspondence is directed to the correct patient even if you do not indicate the patient’s room.

How to Follow a Patient Online

Some patients and families use a patient website or blog to connect with family and friends during a serious health event, care and recovery. These sites are easy to use and are personal and private. Users can write health updates or share photos on their pages and visitors can show their love and support through messages left in a guestbook.

How to Send Plants, Fresh Flowers and Balloons

We recommend to send only Mylar balloons (shiny silver on one side and filled with helium) due to patient allergies to latex. Mary Free Bed staff will bring any deliveries (of flowers, plants, balloons, etc.) to the appropriate patient’s room.
