Mercy Health Muskegon received a call from Muskegon Public Schools asking if we had a wheelchair that an elementary student could use for the rest of the school year. This girl had an accident followed by surgery on her leg, but her insurance would not cover the cost of a wheelchair. Without it, she would be homebound.
The staff at Mercy Health Healthcare Equipment immediately jumped in to help this young lady. Special thanks to Mike Smith, Chris Strait and Jennifer Knapp for making this gift possible. Mike even took extra time make sure the chair was “tuned up” before we delivered it.
“Acts of kindness like this occur every day without being recognized, and that is what makes Mercy Health special,” said Jon Romkema, rehab manager.
