Ken Baughman of Gaines, Mich., was seriously injured at work when two steel beams fell, trapping him. Surgeons at Hurley Medical Center in Flint were forced to amputate both of Ken’s legs. While he recuperated at Hurley, Ken and his wife, Lisa, were visited by a Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital liaison, who arranged for them to speak virtually with a physiatrist at the Grand Rapids campus. That’s when they decided to Ask for Mary.
Ken, 52, came to Mary Free Bed on Aug. 11, two weeks after the accident, to begin his rehabilitation journey.
“There’s nothing that Ken did before that he’s not going to be able to do,” Lisa said.
In this video, Ken, Lisa and their Mary Free Bed team share how Ken is working to regain his independence.
“Travel doesn’t matter at all when it comes to care,” Ken said. “Get the best.”
