Meet Mary

Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital began in 1891 when a small group of Grand Rapids women launched a fundraising campaign to secure an available or “free” bed in a local hospital out of growing concern for the medical care needs of patients with limited financial means. But this was no ordinary campaign – the ladies specifically asked for contributions from everyone named Mary and from those who had friends or relatives with the name.
