At Sparrow, our mission is to improve the health of the people of our communities by providing quality, compassionate care to everyone, every time, whether it's through quality inpatient and outpatient care or providing healthy living options such as the Michigan Athletic Club.

Our services to the region also include providing community health education. That's why we've created Sparrow Smart Health. It's become so easy to find online resources that sometimes, the question is, "Where do I start?"

We hope this website will serve as a valuable source of information to begin a dialogue between patient and doctor and result in helping mid-Michigan families make their best hospital care decisions.

We've pulled together what we believe are a few helpful resources, and we hope this helps you get started.
