For every story,
there's Sparrow.

Introducing Sparrow's community investment that will expand what's possible for the next century of care.

During all stages of your story, from beginning to end, Sparrow is there.

That's why we're embarking on our most monumental undertaking to date: "For Every Story, There's Sparrow," an $800-million community investment that will significantly expand Sparrow facilities and services, further strengthening our abilities to best serve the people of our region.

As the region's largest private employer, we know these efforts provide economic benefits well outside of hospital walls. This project will require significant capital investment, vital philanthropic support, and continued community engagement around these necessary updates. After listening to the insights and recommendations from our physicians and caregivers, we created a plan that equips Sparrow staff with the tools needed to address our continued growth, including:

Green construction crane
  • A new outpatient surgery center, supporting same-day surgeries and expanding capacity for inpatient procedures
    • A comprehensive breast care center, the only center of its kind in our community
  • A new, five-story North Tower at Sparrow Hospital, directly north of the West Tower, offering 112 all-private patient rooms and further strengthening your patient experience
    • An expanded Emergency Department, reducing waiting time at the region's only Level 1 Trauma Center
    • A new, state-of-the-science Labor and Delivery Unit, with 16 delivery rooms, C-Section suites, and more
    • Updated infrastructure needs including a new central utility plant
  • A new, free-standing Emergency Department in Meridian Township to improve access to care and support the outpatient needs of our community
  • Renovations to existing patient units within Sparrow Hospital, including the NICU — serving the most fragile babies of our region
  • Investments in our Community Hospitals across the region at Sparrow Carson, Sparrow Clinton, Sparrow Eaton, and Sparrow Ionia

“Sparrow’s commitment to continuous improvement speaks volumes. We are already the premier place to receive care in this community. These expansions are about one focus — helping patients heal.”

Community-owned. Community-based. Community-governed.

Sparrow is led, managed, and operated by individuals who live right here in our community — who are committed to making the right investments for the best possible care for every one of their neighbors. Any earnings are put right back into Mid-Michigan, not sent to an out-of-town corporate office. Decision-making is centered around community commitment, community health and well-being, and community success.

With more than 120 site of care — including six hospitals — our focus is on you. Odds are strong that you or someone you know or love was born here, cared for here, has worked here, or volunteered here.

At Sparrow, we're committed to providing you with the best experience imaginable. We believe that — with a dedicated team, thorough research, and a forward-looking mindset — the possibilities are endless. Even more importantly, we understand that behind every chart are unique faces, each with their own families, futures, dreams, and stories. This investment will allow us to remain at the forefront of technology and development to provide exceptional care for every story.

Our team is excited to embark on these efforts. To keep you up-to-date on progress, we will share more information on this project here as it is available.
