To reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect everyone’s health, Mary Free Bed is limiting the number of people coming into our buildings. We’ve enhanced protocols and added resources that meet or exceed national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and OSHA mandates surrounding the pandemic.
All visitors must sign in at the West Entry check-in desk, be screened (see questions below) and 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.
Hours are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. daily at our hospital on the main campus in Grand Rapids.
Sub-Acute Rehabilitation hours are 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.
Everyone (patients, designated visitors/caregivers, employees, vendors) is screened for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors upon arrival at a Mary Free Bed location. You’ll be asked:
If you answered YES to the any of these questions:
Every case of COVID-19 is different. Symptoms vary from person to person, and so does the rate of recovery. Rehabilitation helps.
We’ve put together a series of short videos filled with helpful tips from Mary Free Bed clinicians. From quick-and-easy exercises to strengthen your lungs to what to eat to improve your energy, we think you’ll find these “Mary Free Bits” helpful as you recover at home.
“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.
Our Foundation created the COVID-19 Relief Fund in response to requests from community members about how they could help Mary Free Bed.
