Unsurpassed experience with very difficult multi-trauma patients
As the only Level I Trauma Center between Detroit and Michigan’s northern border, Hurley Medical Center sees a tremendous amount of patients from outside the region, as well as from Genesee County. This constant exposure to high-level trauma means that our doctors, nurses, and entire neurology staff have developed an enormous amount of expertise in successfully treating very sick and unstable patients.
World-class treatment of neurological conditions
No other medical center in the region can match Hurley’s level of expertise when it comes to the speed of response in a traumatic emergency and the thoroughness of the surgical team at every level. From the moment a patient enters the hospital and is met by Emergency Room Initial Responders to the involvement of the highly-coordinated Trauma Team to the Intensive Care Unit to the Operating Room, Hurley’s entire neurosurgical team is among the best anywhere.
An exceptional team approach
Hurley’s neurosurgical team has such successful outcomes because is it precisely that – a team, consisting of surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical specialists, medical assistants, Operating Room technicians, and administrators, all working together for the good of the patient.

Patient- and Family-Centered Care
Patient- and Family-Centered Care, a new way of delivering healthcare which involves the patient and the family in medical decisions, is at the heart of Hurley Medical Center’s approach to the practice of medicine. Our neurosurgeons include families in the decision-making process and thoroughly explain all surgical options, tests, and potential outcomesinvolved with treatment. This constant communication not only makes patients and families part of the medical team, it produces better results and increased patient safety.
