Sparrow has a wide range of food offerings, from a quick snack to an entire meal, which will meet all of your nutritional needs.

The Gathering Place, located on the first level of the main hospital, is open daily from 5:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., 7 days a week. A wide selection of hot and cold foods, soup, salad bar, sandwich bar, and beverages are available.

Starbucks, located in the main lobby of the hospital, offers a “Grab-N-Go” service with a complete line of specialty coffee drinks and other beverages, breakfast sandwiches, deli-sandwiches, and salads . Hours are 5:30 a.m. – 2:30 a.m., 7 days a week.

Both of the Sparrow Main Campus locations accept cash and debit cards as well as MasterCard and Visa.

The Great Lakes Café, a self-service convenience store located on the St. Lawrence Campus, is available 24/7 offering a variety of sandwiches, salads, snacks, and beverages.


Sparrow Hospital In-Patients receive Room Service for meals based on a specific diet prescribed by their physician. Patients will receive a menu from a Food and Nutrition Services Room Service Representative appropriate to their prescribed diet.

Hours of operation for Sparrow Room Service are 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m., 7 days a week.

Once a Patient has made their food choices, they dial extension 4-FOOD (4-3663) from their bedside telephone to place their order. If assistance is needed with meal choices, a Room Service Representative will provide that help, either at bedside or on the phone. If Patients are not capable of or do not wish to make their own food choices, a balanced meal appropriate to their prescribed diet will be served.

Meals are prepared fresh and delivered within one hour of ordering to the Patients’ room. Food selections are monitored to assure compliance with physicians’ orders and individual nutritional needs.


In addition to Sparrow’s retail food options, guests may purchase a Room Service meal for delivery to a Patient room. Guest Meal Vouchers can be purchased in the Sparrow Main Cafeteria or at the Lobby Café. The cost of a room service guest meal is $5 for breakfast (served 6:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.) and $8 for lunch and dinner (served 11 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.)

Meals may be ordered from any hospital phone, including the Patient’s room, by calling extension 4-FOOD (4-3663) or from outside the hospital at 517.364.3663 after the Guest Meal Voucher has been purchased. When placing the order, please provide the number on the Guest Meal Voucher and present the Voucher to the Meal Server upon delivery of the meal.
