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.
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.
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
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!
