At Hurley Medical Center, we have made it our mission to tranform the health of our community so that the people of mid-Michigan can lead healthier lives.
While Hurley is well-known as the best place to go when you are sick or seriously injured, one of our major goals is to keep people out of the hospital. As well as addressing your child's illnesses or injuries, we are here to help your child and your whole family get healthy, stay healthy, and live a healthy life style.
To do this successfully, we must work together with our young patients and their families, with our schools and community organizations, and with our churches and businesses to improve our community’s health. This is the key to our community’s renewed focus on healthy living.
Hurley Center for Health Outcomes: Improving our community’s health
The Hurley Center for Health Outcomes is making great strides in improving our community’s health by partnering with local groups, foundations, churches and schools to educate people about how to prevent diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Our disease-prevention specialists show people how to eat healthier diets and become more physically active. They offer healthy cooking demonstrations, family weight loss programs, and the PATH program (Personal Action Toward Health), which helps prevent chronic disease management. They organize health fairs, manage a local farmer’s market, and oversee a community garden across the street from the medical center.
