For nearly six decades, long-time patient, Randy Syswerda, has come to Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital for treatment. At 4 years old, a case of encephalitis robbed Randy of his ability to walk. He spent 6 months in our inpatient program, and left the hospital able to walk with braces.
Randy has returned to Mary Free Bed many times since, most notably in 1993 when a fall left him with a brain injury.
Watch Randy’s story.
