Sparrow Ionia Hospital today broke ground on the first new hospital in the mid-Michigan region in decades.
The new, two-story hospital will have expanded emergency, surgery, and outpatient services including all digital radiology, private Patient rooms, and enhanced safety and security. The new hospital is being built to LEED-certification standards as we move to be better stewards of our resources while creating healing environments for our Patients.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the 44-acre site of the new facility, located on South M-66 (South State Road) just south of the Ionia County Airport, and featured a keynote address by Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, a native of Ionia County, and Ionia Mayor Dan Balice.
