The Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, a nonprofit in Grand Rapids, restores hope and freedom through rehabilitation for people who are at some of the lowest points of their lives. Through expert knowledge and compassionate care, Mary Free Bed strengthens the mind, trains the body and inspires hope in patients and families.

• Experience innovative therapies
• Use state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment
• Learn to use adaptive equipment to resume a favorite hobby
• Learn to drive or return to driving after injury or illness
