Expanded services, thanks to generous donations
Sparrow Clinton has expanded healthcare services, thanks to the generous charitable support of our local community.

This investment in the health of our community means every patient can expect to receive the very best in healthcare services delivered by expert physicians and highly skilled caregivers throughout Sparrow Clinton Hospital.

Our award-winning critical access hospital earned Pathway to Excellence® designation in 2016, and was re-designated in 2019. This prestigious award from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) confirms quality initiatives are used to create a positive work environment where Nurses can flourish, and nationally identifies Sparrow Clinton as one of the best hospitals in which to work.
