Restoring hope and freedom through philanthropy.
To connect, nurture, and grow the lifelong relationships we share with our donors who pave the way for Mary Free Bed to be a global leader in rehabilitative care and research.
About the Foundation
The Mary Free Bed Foundation is a bridge to hope for patients who have experienced a life-changing injury or illness. Your gift helps the hospital provide advanced rehabilitative care to those who need it most.
Patients come to Mary Free Bed with a wide range of conditions. Some have had strokes, spinal cord injuries, or brain injuries. Others have cancer, amputations, or other chronic diseases. But no matter what they’re facing, they all have one thing in common: they want to get back to their lives and the people they love.
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generosity of donors. Your gift helps restore independence to thousands of people through highly specialized therapy programs, innovative technology and capital improvements.
