Hurley Asthma Programs Awards-CH
Awards won by Hurley Medical Center’s Asthma Programs
In 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded the Genesee County Asthma Network and the Hurley Medical Center Asthma Clinical Outreach Program for the outstanding way they address environmental triggers as part of their comprehensive asthma care programs. Only five national organizations received this prestigious award.
In 2007, the Genesee County Childhood Asthma Task Force was honored by the EPA with a National Exemplary Award for Asthma Management. As the only county in the state of Michigan that showed a decrease in asthma morbidity and mortality, Genesee County and Hurley Medical Center are models for other asthma programs across the country.
In 2006, Governor Jennifer Granholm and the Michigan Department of Community Health selected Hurley Medical Center as one of 23 Hometown Health Heroes in the state of Michigan. Hurley received this honor for working tirelessly to maintain and improve the health of its local community.
