Updated information on COVID-19 and Flu: Restricted visitation is now in effect

Sparrow Health System was born out of volunteerism and that spirit of community service still endures today.

The forerunner of Sparrow was founded in 1896 by a volunteer group known as the Women’s Hospital Association, governed by the Women's Board of Managers.

Much has changed at Sparrow since then but volunteers are a crucial part of Sparrow’s mission. More than 1,600 volunteers contributed more than 157,000 hours on all of Sparrow’s campuses in 2014.
