Expanded services, thanks to generous donations

Sparrow Clinton has expanded healthcare services, thanks to the generous charitable support of our local community. Our most recent building project, a $5.7 million Emergency Services Department, was funded in part by $1.6 million in community donations combined with the Alice Jumper Estate gift to create $2.2 million in community philanthropic support. 

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.

Recognized for excellence

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. 

Sparrow Medical Group St. Johns was the first practice in the United States associated with a critical access hospital to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) Certification. The practice became the first to nationally recertify in 2018.
