Three of Sparrow’s hospitals and the Sparrow Medical Group physician practice in St. Johns have received 2017 Governor’s Awards of Excellence for outstanding quality and Patient safety.

Sparrow Carson Hospital, Sparrow Clinton Hospital, Sparrow Ionia Hospital and Sparrow Medical Group St. Johns were among more than 100 Michigan hospitals, physician practices, nursing homes, and other facilities honored by the nonprofit MPRO Wednesday at Eagle Eye Golf Course in Bath Township.

The award was first developed in 2003 by MPRO, a national leader in healthcare quality improvement and medical review.

Sparrow Carson was recognized for outpatient quality among acute care hospitals; Sparrow Clinton and Sparrow Ionia for quality among critical access hospitals/ambulatory surgery centers and inpatient psychiatric facilities; and SMG St. Johns for quality adult immunizations.

SMG St. Johns, 901 S. Oakland in St. Johns, provides family practice, internal medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology and general surgery services.

“We’re honored to receive an award that showcases the quality of care our Caregivers provide to our Emergency Room Patients. We work very diligently to ensure high quality, safe care at Sparrow Carson Hospital,” said Joan Sweet, Chief Quality and Risk Officer at Sparrow Carson.

Said Ed Bruun, President and CEO of Sparrow Clinton: “It is a great honor to be recognized by MPRO for Patient safety and quality of care. The award truly reflects the compassionate care and dedication to excellence that every Caregiver brings to Sparrow Clinton Hospital each day.”

Jen Anderson, Professional Service Coordinator at Sparrow Ionia, said: “The Sparrow Ionia Hospital care team is honored to receive this prestigious award that recognizes our commitment to continually improve the quality and safety of care received at our facility.”

The numerous Governor’s Awards of Excellence represent how Sparrow is transforming care, pursuing best practices, and delivering nationally recognized care to improve the health of the mid-Michigan region. Sparrow is committed to being a national leader in quality and Patient experience.
