E.w. Sparrow Hospital is a 703-bed, major teaching Hospital (affiliated with Michigan state university's colleges of osteopathic medicine, human medicine and nursing) and the most comprehensive, acute care center in mid-michigan.

Today's Sparrow health system blends the knowledge and expertise of over 1,240 physicians, nearly 9,000 caregivers and about 1,500 volunteers with the most advanced technology, serving as a comprehensive health system for a core eight- county population and beyond. In addition, more people choose Sparrow for their maternity needs (over 3,500 deliveries annually), rehabilitation, and emergency treatment than any other Hospital in mid-michigan. Sparrow has achieved a national benchmark in quality care for mothers and babies, as mid-michigan's only baby-friendly Hospital, a global program of the world health organization (who) and the united nations children's fund (unicef). Sparrow has undertaken a variety of measures to improve maternal and infant health. An outpatient breastfeeding clinic supporting breastfeeding mothers and infants is held twice a week in our pediatrics subspecialty clinic. Sparrow also sponsors the baby caf, a community resource free of charge to nursing mothers to obtain breastfeeding support, as well as peer support from other new mothers. We also work with valuable partners to offer free services to parents and children. Sparrow works with university of Michigan pediatric ophthalmology to provide an eye clinic weekly in our pediatrics subspecialty clinic. Sparrow also partners with the ingham county health department and healthy start to provide a free monthly class for health department patients, including a tour of Sparrow labor and delivery, and information about what to expect when you come to the Hospital to have your baby. Sparrow also has a partnership with Michigan medicine (the university of Michigan) to oversee the Sparrow children's center. This allows broadened pediatric specialty services for the region and help ensure families stay close to home, instead of traveling great distances to seek care for their children. Sparrow health system's reach extends far beyond the acute care setting of the Hospital. There are many ways our staff proactively supports the community, especially those who have the greatest need. Because of Sparrow's commitment, the people of mid Michigan have access to the full range of comprehensive acute care services and the latest medical advances without traveling great distances. These services are available to all mid Michigan residents, regardless of their ability to pay.
