To reduce the spread of COVID-19, we’re limiting the number of people coming into our buildings.
All visitors will sign in at the West Entry check-in desk, be screened (see questions below) and must wear a surgical or homemade mask (or a face shield if you’re medically unable to wear a mask). We’re helping patients stay connected with loved ones through virtual visits and by phone.
Visiting hours – Hours are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. daily at our hospital on the main campus in Grand Rapids. Visitors may take patients outside on the third-floor terrace, weather permitting.
SAR visiting hours – Hours at 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Visits are limited to one hour and must take place in designated areas on the Sub-Acute Rehabilitation floor. Outdoor visits are permitted if the patient is appropriate to go outside and can be transported by family to the outdoor seating areas. Patients must be signed out/in with the recreational therapist or nurse when leaving/returning to Unit.
Screening – Everyone (patients, designated visitors/caregivers, employees, vendors) is screened for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors upon arrival at a Mary Free Bed location.

“Listen to your body,” said Dr. Kelly Armstrong, a Mary Free Bed physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation. “If something doesn’t feel right or you’re struggling with the pace of symptom improvement, reach out to a medical professional.”
She warned it’s possible to contract COVID-19 more than once, so follow mask, social distancing and handwashing guidelines.
West Michigan residents and organizations have opened their hearts to Mary Free Bed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’re grateful.
