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 Cancer Center – a commitment to our community
At Sparrow, our commitment to providing the best Patient care includes facilities that promote healing and good health.
A series of new construction and renovation projects, both on and off campus, are underway to integrate cutting edge technology, modern facilities, and convenient locations to better meet the changing needs of our community.
This website, buildingsparrow.org, has been developed to allow Caregivers, Patients and visitors to follow our progress to build a healthy future. Here you’ll find the latest updates, photos, and information on accessing Sparrow services affected by construction.
One of the first improvements that will affect Patient and Caregiver access starts in mid-July with the temporary relocation of the Sparrow Main Emergency room entrance. This change, expected to last six months, is due to construction in the parking deck as we consolidate and expand our OR services.
Other projects underway at this time include completion of the Sparrow Neurosciences Center on Tower floors 9 & 10, the build-out of Tower floors 7 & 8, construction of a new Grand Ledge Ambulatory building, an addition to the Sparrow Clinton ER, and construction of a replacement hospital in Ionia.
Our work to build a healthy future will span several years, so be sure to follow new developments and improvements right here at buildingsparrow.org.
Have you seen the newly renovated west lobby and gift shop at Sparrow Hospital at the St. Lawrence Campus? It’s been modernized and there’s a comfortable seating area to drink coffee and wait for your loved ones.
Updating our facilities is part of our effort to improve the Patient and Visitor experience at Sparrow.
For more than a century, Sparrow has been a leader in caring for children – so we’re excited that the Sparrow Pediatrics Unit was recently refreshed with kid-friendly furniture, new artwork, colors appealing to toddlers to teens, and more.
Located on the fifth floor of the Sparrow Tower, the Pediatrics Unit’s $3 million renovation is another step in Sparrow’s transformation of care in mid-Michigan.
As construction continues on the Plaza Building and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, the glass walkway that will connect to the Sparrow Professional Building is now framed and enclosed. Construction on the circular drive off of Michigan Avenue is also underway. We thank all of our Patients, Caregivers, Visitors and Guests for your patience during this time when access to the Professional Building Parking ramp is periodically re-routed to accommodate the work. As weather permits, more detailed work on the W3 Plaza, the central courtyard, will get underway.
Sparrow celebrated another step in transforming care for mid-Michigan! Our brand new, 72,000-square-foot Sparrow Health Center Lansing officially opened on Nov. 21, 2016.
It’s located at 2909 E. Grand River Avenue, just west of US-127. The project is part of Sparrow’s more than $285 million in construction and information technology projects over a five-year period and comes during a major wave of openings, including the recent Gathering Place at Sparrow and next year’s Sparrow Plaza and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center.
The windows are being cleaned, the furniture uncovered, and final touches made in preparation for the opening next week of the new Sparrow Health Center Lansing. The first to open in the new building will be Sparrow Medical Group Eastside, Radiology services, and Endoscopy. In December, Sparrow Medical Group North, Sparrow Medical Group Senior Health and Laboratory services will open and in February the building will finish out with MRI services, Outpatient Physical Rehabilitation, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and a new Sparrow Pharmacy Plus with drive-thru.
By combining a range of services into one facility our Patients can see their Physician and get follow-up care such as Radiology or prescriptions, all in one visit to one location. This not only improves the Patient experience, but also helps to ensure a better health outcome.
Sparrow is celebrating the grand opening of Sparrow Medical Group (SMG) Williamston, a family practice that will provide quality healthcare close to home for Williamston residents and surrounding communities.
The new family practice has two full-time Physicians, Donald Setter, D.O., and Dorothea Edmunds, D.O., and a complement of medical assistants.
SMG Williamston opened to Patients on Tuesday, Sept. 27. It is located at 301 Williamston Center Road, near the corner of Williamston and Linn roads. Patients can call 517.655.5977 to schedule an appointment.
“Primary care is important to the overall health of the population. Sparrow has invested significantly in expanding primary care access and establishing a medical home for our Patients, including this new practice in Williamston,” said Joe Ruth, Sparrow Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “As an extension of primary care, Sparrow also has three Urgent Care centers and four FastCare clinics who, like our SMG practices in Williamston, use the MySparrow electronic record. This means better care coordination between the Primary Care Physician (PCP) and the Clinic when a Patient seeks care outside of their PCP’s normal office hours.”
Said Dr. Setter: “We hope this new practice will show the Williamston and surrounding communities how committed we are to improving their health by providing quality healthcare services at a location that will be close to home, and thus more convenient to access. Through SMG Williamston and other Sparrow services in the area including pharmacy, medical supply and outpatient rehabilitation, Sparrow will continue to strive to offer the best in care and Patient experience for this community.”
Choose Wisely. Choose Sparrow.
As of the end of July, the glass front has been gradually going into place on the face of the new Plaza Building, home to the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, and construction has started on the pedestrian bridge that will connect the Plaza to the Sparrow Professional Building. Construction started just over one year ago. Track the progress through The Christman Company’s webcam, and watch a timelapse from the very beginning!

In the works for years, Sparrow unveiled its dazzling new modern and upscale dining area on Wednesday, July 20 in a special ceremony and open house.
The Gathering Place at Sparrow features bright open spaces and a wall of glass with a view along Michigan Avenue. It showcases our effort to transform facilities to meet the expectations of our Patients, Visitors, Physicians and Caregivers for quality care in a healing environment. It officially opened to the public, Thursday, July 21.

Community celebrates opening of the Gathering Place at Sparrow
With the framework set, the shape of the new Plaza Building and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center can be visualized. Each day brings great progress!
We’re moving closer every day to opening the Gathering Place inside Sparrow Hospital. The modern and upscale dining area is helping transform Michigan Avenue in Lansing.
Recently the installation of the living wall started. Fifty boxes of plants arrived and the greenery will soon go up. This is a gift from the Volunteers of the Sparrow Guild in honor of their 90th anniversary. Thank you!
We’re very excited to show you what it looks like when finished. Stay tuned!
