Diversity & Inclusion

Our culture of inclusion runs deep.
Our Patient population is diverse, so it benefits the mid-Michigan region to have a diverse population of health care providers. Sparrow’s recruiting efforts reflect our interest in building a workforce that offers our Patients more than professional skill.

Sparrow established its first Workplace Diversity Plan in 1992. We believe that, through our similarities, we can bridge our differences and enhance our ability to serve a broad Patient base. We are dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Sparrow leaders actively work to create and maintain a respectful and engaged work culture. Leadership assessment skills and diversity education are part of ongoing efforts which ensure inclusion at Sparrow. Initiatives like alternative work schedules and leave, childcare, and employee assistance programs—offer ways to fit your personal needs into your work life.


Sparrow is a growing health system with two Lansing campuses, hospitals in St. Johns, Ionia, Charlotte, and Carson City as well as dozens of satellite care centers, Physicians Health Plan, Sparrow Physicians Health Network, the Sparrow Medical Group and the Sparrow Michigan Athletic Club (MAC).
