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.
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.

With every passing day big changes are apparent in the construction on the main campus along Michigan Avenue. Initial site prep has been completed and the crews have started work to lay the foundations for the new Sparrow Plaza and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center.
Across the street, they are well underway with the foundation for the new Sparrow Gathering Place too!
Sparrow broke ground on the Sparrow Health Center Lansing, an all-new campus that will expand access to primary care, provide senior health services, and offer streamlined and comprehensive care in one convenient location.
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.
Sparrow has undertaken a significant investment in the community, with 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 services.
