GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – For the fourth straight year, Mary Free Bed Sub-Acute Rehabilitation has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report for Best Short-Term Rehabilitation. More than 15,000 organizations were evaluated. Mary Free Bed ranked better than both state and national averages for consistency of nurse staffing, fall prevention, the amount of physical therapy patients received and the number of patients able to return home.
“We’re honored about this recognition,” said Kiersten Cudney, administrator of Mary Free Bed’s Sub-Acute Rehabilitation Program. “Our team members have new challenges this year with COVID-19 precautions and protocols, and they’re working hard to help patients get back to their lives.”
Cudney was named administrator of the program in October, bringing years of skilled nursing and senior care industry experience to the Grand Rapids program.
