The Sparrow Ionia Hospital Foundation was created in 1979 to improve healthcare services for Ionia County.

Donations through the Foundation have financed tens of thousands of dollars worth of medical equipment, facility upgrades and medical education scholarships.

The Foundation’s Giving Tree, located at Sparrow Ionia Hospital, features hundreds of leaves of those who have generously given to support the health of the community.
