Stories from Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM)

Every hospital has stories. Some are incredible. Some are inspiring and heart warming. All of them are nice to hear. We recognize that we can talk on and on about the distinctions we’ve been awarded, the services we offer, and the experience of the staff working in our halls. But only by hearing the stories of those who arrived at our doors anxious or scared and went home healed, can you truly begin to understand who we are, and what we strive for.
