Expanding What’s Possible For the Next Century of Care

We’re embarking on a monumental undertaking: a community investment plan that will significantly expand University of Michigan Health-Sparrow facilities and services, further strengthening the health of our communities.

When it comes to bringing an elevated standard of care to our community, UM Health-Sparrow steps up as a regional leader. We are always considering what’s on the horizon to meet our community’s ever-changing needs. After listening to the insights and recommendations from our physicians and team members, we are building a plan of investments in facilities improvements and expansions across the health system that equips our staff with the tools needed to address our continued growth. These investments aren’t just about offering leading-edge resources; they will enable us to grow alongside the community we’ve seen flourish over the past 125 years, ensuring the coming generations will be in good hands for 125 more.



Expanded geographic reach

Every corner of our region deserves access to exceptional care. Investments across the region at our community hospitals — UM Health-Sparrow Carson, UM Health-Sparrow Clinton, UM Health-Sparrow Eaton and UM Health-Sparrow Ionia — will strengthen the patient experience at every corner of the community.

Responsiveness to vast needs

In health care, nobody can predict exactly what the future holds — but with the proper tools and leading-edge technology, we can better prepare for the unexpected. New proactive technology will allow us to stay on top of innovations that will empower us to remain responsive for the varied, cradle-to-grave care needs of our community.

Increased personalization of care

From preventative care to diagnostic care to treatment, it is our priority to offer every patient whichever specific level of care they may need, whenever and wherever they need it. Expansion of our services across locations will allow us to amplify the specificity of our care, personalizing to every patient’s story.

Regional leadership

As the region’s largest employer, expansions and improvements will align UM Health-Sparrow at the forefront of industry trends and continue to attract the very best skilled team members to our region.

Improved patient and team member experience

We understand that the holistic patient experience plays a significant role in care and healing. Updates and improvements such as all-private patient rooms and infrastructure improvements will increase speed to service, modernize our facilities and therefore offer a more positive experience for both patients and team members.

“UM Health-Sparrow’s commitment to continuous improvement speaks volumes. We are already the premier place to receive care in this community. These expansions are about one focus — helping patients heal.”

Building a reputation of trust

Our patients entrust UM Health-Sparrow with their most pressing matters, during their most vulnerable chapters. Through the expected and the unexpected, the joyous and the unimaginable, UM Health-Sparrow is there.

Each improvement in this community investment plan goes far beyond providing a gleaming, new facility; these are necessities that have been designed to improve efficiencies and patient experience.

But we can only achieve this together. This project will require significant capital investment, vital philanthropic support and continued community engagement around these necessary updates. Under a shared vision, our team of donors will create lasting change, making this vision a reality and, ultimately, saving lives.

We are excited to embark on these efforts. To keep you up-to-date on progress, we will share more information on these projects here as it is available.

We all have a role to play

With your generosity, we can continue to touch the lives of our community members; we can continue to provide high quality care; we can continue to keep our region strong. Your gift will shape countless stories for the better.
