More than 114 years of history, infinite possibilities for our future.

At Sparrow, we continuously build on our strong foundation of service to mid-Michigan. We remember our roots as a community hospital founded by 114 women in 1896 and funded in our early years through a gift from Mr.EdwardW.Sparrow.

We never stop setting new goals and aspiring for improved care in our pursuit of our vision to be recognized as a national leader in quality and patient experience.

And with efforts such as our investment in electronic medical records (EMR), we continue to do so. Sparrow has committed to a plan to transform patient care in mid-Michigan and streamline the medical records process. The new EMR, when fully installed, will allow physicians to readily access and utilize patient’s records while enabling patients to see their own records and make appointments.

This information technology project will not only enhance patient care and simplify transactions between the patient and the hospital, but also reduce health care costs.

This is a prime example of staying true to our values of innovation, compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence.
