At Hurley, we are steadfastly committed to the people of our community, from infants to seniors and everyone in between. More than a hospital, we are our community's partner.
That’s what we do best here at Hurley–partner with our community. We’re reaching out to our adults and children with diabetes education programs, injury prevention, weight loss programs, screenings for breast cancer and other chronic health issues, stop-smoking classes, and geriatric programs for seniors. We're focusing on men's health and nutrition and heart health and a host of other issues, as well as offering our community ways to grow their own food and have fun at the movies. Our goal is to transforming the health of everyone in our community so they can lead safer, healthier lives.
At Hurley Medical Center, we take asthma very seriously and are doing everything we can to help fight it. In fact, we’re a leader in the state of Michigan for pediatric asthma care, with the only home-based Asthma Disease Management program in the region. To teach children and adults how to control their asthma, our Asthma Disease Managers go to health fairs, schools, churches and synagogues, doctors' offices, and community centers. An important link between the community and the hospital, they conduct asthma screening tests, show people how they can reduce asthma triggers, and teach them what to do during an asthma attack. If you would like one of our Asthma Disease Managers to visit your community, call (810) 262-9591 or (810) 262-6125.

Most injuries, accidents and fatalities occur because the people involved are not aware of safe habits and routines. The goal of Hurley's Injury Prevention and Safe Kids of Greater Flint programs is to reduce traumatic injuries in Genesee County and the surrounding area. To take this life-saving information out into the community, Hurley’s Injury Prevention team members are constantly reaching out to people who live in Flint and beyond, teaching them what they can do to prevent injuries. Partnering with schools, police and fire departments, community groups, car dealerships, and countless local businesses, Hurley’s Injury Prevention Programs are making great strides at promoting safe habits and keeping our community healthy.
