After brief remarks from James and Susan Herman, attendees lined up to sign the beam or add a personal message.

The naming of the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center facility recognizes a combined $2.5- million philanthropic gift from James and Judith Herbert of Lansing, and James and Susan Herman of East Lansing. James Herman, M.D., is the Medical Director of the Sparrow Cancer Center.

Support from our region and our Caregivers is what allows us to transform health care, expanding and improving our services to bring you quality, compassionate care, in a healthy, healing environment.

This beam, filled with signatures from Caregivers, Patients, Donors, and community members, is a reflection of that collaboration and will be a permanent piece of the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, opening early summer of 2017.

Services onsite will feature a drive-thru Pharmacy, Laboratory, Endoscopy, Diagnostic Imaging including CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, MRI, and more.

Caregivers sign final beam to be placed for The Gathering Place

Sparrow Caregivers recently had the chance to leave their mark on The Gathering Place – a modern and upscale dining area on the main campus of Sparrow Hospital – currently under construction.

Caregivers were given the opportunity to sign their name to the final beam to be placed.

Support from our region and our Caregivers is what allows us to transform health care, expanding and improving our services to bring you quality, compassionate care, in a healthy, healing environment.

Construction is expected to be complete by 2016.

Sparrow has undertaken a significant investment in the community, more than $285 million in construction and information technology projects over a five-year period, as we continue to transform care, implement best practices, and deliver nationally recognized care.

The new Sparrow Health Center Lansing will be located on the grounds of the former Medical-Dental building at 2909 E. Grand River Avenue, just west of US-127 in Lansing Township.

The 70,000-square-foot building will house a drive-thru Pharmacy, Laboratory, Endoscopy, Diagnostic Imaging including CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, MRI and more in addition to three Sparrow Medical Group practices.

At Sparrow, a major part of our efforts to transform care involves reconfiguring our facilities to meet the expectations of our Patients and their families for quality care in a healing environment. 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 easy access to necessary follow-up care, ensuring a better health outcome.

Preliminary site preparation is underway and the Sparrow Health Center Lansing is expected to be complete in 2017.
