It’s why you got into medicine in the first place: The science and compassion of caring for individuals. In practice, however, too much of a physician’s time seems to focus on the business side of health care. You’re taking care of paperwork, not Patients. Learning about the latest regulations, not the latest remedies.

It doesn’t need to be that way.

The advantages of employment with Sparrow extend far beyond a regular paycheck and help with practice management.

Sparrow Health System

As mid-Michigan’s premier health care organization, Sparrow provides quality care to tens of thousands of people each year through two Lansing campuses, affiliate hospitals, satellite care centers, two HMOs, the Sparrow Health Science Pavilion and the Michigan Athletic Club. Our flagship, Sparrow Hospital, is the regional center for cancer, trauma, pediatrics, orthopedics, neonatal intensive care and neurological care. And each year we help train about 210 residents through 24 programs.

At Sparrow, you’ll practice medicine as you always wanted, in an environment of unmatched quality, compassion and opportunity.

Advantages of Employment

And every bit of support we provide – in staff, technology and other resources – emphasizes the quality for which Sparrow is renowned.

Focus on the medicine, not the business

As an employed physician, every aspect of managing your practice is taken care of for you. Hiring and managing staff. Billing and collection. Regulation adherence. Supply inventories and technology upgrades. You’ll be able to put your time and energy into Patient care, without sacrifice to your family and personal interests.

Michigan State University

Our affiliation with, and close proximity to, MSU provides ample opportunities for continuing education, research, clinical trials and access to experts.

Access to specialists, technology

The 900 members of Sparrow’s medical staff give you personal access to virtually every medical specialty. From one-on-one consultations to programs presented by your expert colleagues (or to your colleagues), Sparrow gives you exposure to information – and cutting edge technology – that helps you better care for your Patients.
