Four physicians who came to Mary Free Bed from across the country graduated last week from the hospital’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency.
Jason Coombs, DO; Thomas Hordt, MD; Christopher Meadows, MD; and Anthony Truong, MD, graduated Mary Free Bed’s inaugural program. They will all use their training to serve patients in various locations across the U.S.
Hordt will stay with Mary Free Bed in Grand Rapids. Truong will begin a fellowship in interventional spine and pain management at Michigan State University/Comprehensive Pain Specialists in Flint. Meadows with join St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute in Spokane, Washington. And Coombs will join Trinity Health in Minot, North Dakota.
“Mary Free Bed’s singular focus on rehabilitation as its mission is as rare as it is wonderful,” said Dr. Michael Jakubowski, Mary Free Bed’s chief medical officer. “Ultimately, that’s the reason we have such a dynamic faculty, so many evidence-based research opportunities and, most importantly, the remarkable breadth of patients our residents learn from — adults and children facing issues big and small.”
The post-graduate program provides clinical, educational and research opportunities in all areas of PM&R, including amputation, brain injury, cancer, pediatrics, stroke and spinal cord injury.
