The Sparrow Emergency Department has taken extra steps to protect you and your loved ones during this unsettling time. As the only community-based health system in the area, it’s what you expect of us.

We know the hospital isn’t where you want to go. But while we urge you to continue to be vigilant against COVID-19, don’t ignore serious health concerns that require emergency care. Don’t wait to seek help for chest pains or stroke symptoms or other conditions that left untreated could you leave you gravely ill.

We assure you that it’s safe to come to the Sparrow Emergency Department. We stake our 124-year legacy on it.

We’ve been a national leader in testing our patients and the general public for COVID-19, along with implementing visitor restrictions, screenings and requiring face masks to be worn by all caregivers, patients and visitors. Sparrow has led the way in providing personal protective equipment for our incredible caregivers.

And don’t forget we’re the region’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, which means we are specially trained to handle the most severe emergency cases.

We’re also exceptionally prepared to care for your children. Our Granger Pediatric Emergency Department is the only hospital emergency center in Mid-Michigan especially focused on kids and their special requirements.

Kids are kids and COVID-19 or not, they still get injured and experience childhood illnesses that require emergency care. We’re a safe place for you to bring your children.
