Hurley Foundation Charity Profile
The Hurley Foundation helps Hurley Medical Center fulfill its mission of "Clinical Excellence. Service to People" in a competitive health care market. The Hurley Foundation, a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization, was created in 1993 to facilitate charitable fundraising for Hurley Medical Center. Our goal is to foster Hurley Medical Center's leadership role in addressing issues which affect the health and well-being of mid-Michigan residents. This is accomplished by obtaining money and other resources, including volunteers, to fulfill the hospital's mission.
Founded in 1908 Hurley Medical Center originated with a bequest of land and $55,000 from James J. Hurley to the City of Flint to build a hospital for all citizens, "regardless of their ability to pay." Hurley Medical Center receives no city tax dollars and is entirely self-supporting.
As Flint's only public hospital, Hurley currently provides over 66% of this community's uncompensated health care to citizens with little or no health insurance, at a cost last year of $59 million.
