This entrance offers the easiest access to registration, just inside the main doors. Patients who need lab, radiology, emergency and other outpatient services must register first before proceeding to those service areas.

111 and 123 Lansing Street Medical Office Buildings

Most Sparrow Eaton Hospital on-campus doctors’ offices are located at the 111 or 123 Lansing Street professional office buildings, with access from Lansing Street or Hall Street.

Tips for registration
Have your driver’s license and insurance cards out and ready.

Many patients inquire why they need to show identification when they were just recently at the hospital for other health care needs.

The reasons and benefits include:

  • Ensuring the accuracy of information so patient records are correct and bills are mailed in a timely manner.
  • Reducing the necessity to contact a patient later for additional information.
  • Ensuring the appropriate physician gets the needed results, especially if multiple physicians are involved in the patient's care.
