The Gathering Place

The Gathering Place

At Sparrow, a major part of our efforts to transform care involves reconfiguring our facilities to meet the expectations of our Patients, their families, and our Caregivers for quality care in a healing environment. This effort extends beyond the bedside to include the entire experience while visiting Sparrow.

To improve the overall dining experience in the hospital, and create additional retail opportunities, we’re excited to announce that we will be relocating the cafeteria and creating The Gathering Place – a modern and upscale dining area at Sparrow Hospital.

Housed within the new Plaza Building, the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center will be built upon the principles of Patient- and family-centered care.  Sparrow is committed to offering timely and convenient access to radiation, medical and surgical oncologists and a full range of clinical and family support services. The facility and programs are being designed with team medicine and Patient- and family engagement in mind.

A new level in Patient care

The new four-story Plaza Building, located centrally on the Sparrow Campus, will house an expanded Cancer Center and other ancillary services to streamline Patient care. Designed with the future in mind, this flexible space can easily be adapted to next-generation technologies as they emerge.

A central courtyard in front of the Plaza Building will add green space along Michigan Avenue and provide a place for our Patients, visitors and Caregivers to rest and revitalize.

Adjacent to the Plaza Building, a new multi-level parking structure will add approximately 600 new parking spaces, providing greater accessibility for visitors. A dedicated second floor entrance with reserved parking for Cancer Center Patients, is just one of the many steps we’re taking to create a Patient-centered, healing environment. At Sparrow, the needs of the Patient must always come first, every step of the way.

Field report – the inside of the new Sparrow Ionia hospital is coming along nicely with walls going into place and drywall prepped for paint.  Here’s a look from the inside out with views of the snowy countryside beyond. Not too long before the snow melts and the new hospital opens!
