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!

The new Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, a keystone in Sparrow’s commitment to caring for our community, hit another milestone with the placement of the signature beam, reflecting the collaboration between Caregivers, Patients, Donors, and community members to transform healthcare for our region.
Sparrow Health Center Lansing, located on the grounds of the former Medical-Dental building at 2909 E. Grand River Avenue, just west of US-127 in Lansing Township, is beginning to take on a familiar look.
This new campus, expected to open in early 2017, will expand access to primary care, provide senior health services, and offer streamlined and comprehensive care in one convenient location. Services onsite will feature a drive-thru Pharmacy, Laboratory, Endoscopy, Diagnostic Imaging including CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, MRI, and more.
On Wednesday, Jan. 20, workers placed the panes of glass that will create a bright, open view of Michigan Avenue for guests to enjoy while they relax and dine on fresh, quality cuisine from a mix of new food stations. With only a few months left things are coming along nicely!
