Tuesday, January 28, 2014 - High-tech services provider makes donation to Sparrow Clinton Hospital expansion

Community support for Sparrow Clinton Hospital’s new Emergency Services Department in St. Johns continues to grow. The Sparrow Clinton Hospital Foundation recently received a $25,000 grant from COMLINK for the Right Here, Right Now Capital Campaign.

This gift was made during the “quiet phase” of the campaign, which reached out to leading philanthropists, community businesses, and hospital physicians and caregivers. Major gifts to date have come from individuals, foundations, farms, service organizations, Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary, and area businesses.

“COMLINK is strongly committed to supporting the communities we serve, and we are proud to make a donation to Sparrow Clinton Hospital to help build its new Emergency Services Department,” says John Summersett, Chief Operating Officer of COMLINK. “We hope our support helps encourage other businesses to do their part in forging stronger community partnerships and strengthening the local ecosystem that is so important to the success of all businesses and organizations.”

COMLINK’s rapidly expanding fiber optic network is headquartered in Michigan and extends throughout the Midwest, featuring more than 5,500 miles of fiber and metro rings throughout the area’s major markets. COMLINK’s Network Management Center is continuously manned to ensure the security of its network, the reliability of its services, and satisfaction of its clients.

From private, high-tech treatment rooms to innovative patient-flow efficiencies, Sparrow Clinton Hospital’s new Emergency Services Department is designed to maintain and enhance the quality of care with comfortable, first-class accommodations for patients and families. Facility features include 10 private rooms and two trauma treatment rooms as well as an exclusive lobby, family conference room, patient observation area, centralized nursing station, and decontamination treatment room.
