Why Mary Free Bed?

All her life, Lisette Wilson dreamed of being a nurse.

“I’ve always had a desire to care for people,” she said. “When someone in my family was sick, I was always the first person there to care for them.”

At 40 years of age, Lisette headed back to school. Those years were a balancing act between raising her family, studying and working as a nurse technician. Her dedication was rewarded with a $7,000 Minority Scholarship from the Mary Free Bed Guild. The Guild established the program in the hope recipients would consider Mary Free Bed when it came time to enter the workforce.

That’s just what Lisette did, joining the Mary Free Bed Spinal Cord Injury team six years ago as a registered nurse. Four years later, she became a clinical care coordinator supervising all units on the night shift.

“I love what I do,” Lisette said. “I see patients get better, and there’s no better feeling than that. Rehabilitation is special.

“What I like about Mary Free Bed is that it’s not too big and it’s not too small,” she continued. “I feel connected to my nursing directors. They listen … they want to hear what you have to say. I know my co-workers, whether they work on another floor, another shift or in a different department. You form a family here.”

“When I started working here, I felt like this was my true calling,” said Annie, a nurse tech. “This is what I was meant to do.”
