As the region’s healthcare leader, our top priority is always the health, safety and welfare of our patients, caregivers, physicians and the communities we serve. When you think Sparrow, think safety. We have implemented measures to protect the safety of our caregivers and community, including screening in all locations and social distancing.

Sparrow is working to flatten the curve locally. The good news is that it is working, due to many factors including our reliance on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and the continuous professionalism and diligence of our 9,000+ caregivers across 115 sites of care. To date, we have provided 300,000 masks, 15,000 face shields, 50,000 gowns, and 2,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to our caregivers. Our world-class, award-winning Sparrow Laboratories are among the few health system-based Labs in Michigan with the capability to test thousands of patients for COVID-19.

Thanks to social distancing measures, washing hands, and partnering with local entities, the number of unique COVID-19 positive Sparrow patients has been trending downward. To date, Sparrow Health System alone has documented 76 patient discharges, who are recovering safely at home.

Thank you for your commitment and dedication during this Coronavirus response and thank you to our caregivers for the care you provide our patients and community members today and every day.
