IONIA - Sparrow is building a new hospital in Ionia.
Sparrow broke ground on what will be a 63,000 square foot facility. The hospital is expected to be completed in the spring of 2015 on a 44 acre site just south of the Ionia County airport along M-66.
The hospital will have two stories, and 22 beds. It will have expanded emergency, surgery and outpatient services according to a press statement.
Ionia's current hospital was built in 1953.
