Our Purpose

The Hurley Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization launched in 1993 that raises funds and awareness of the ways Hurley Medical Center and Hurley Children’s Hospital strive to transform healthcare through academic and clinical excellence. By recruiting volunteers and engaging community support, the Foundation helps fulfill the hospital’s mission of “Clinical Excellence. Service to People.”

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. It is the source of care for 65% of the area’s Medicaid clients and most of the area’s unemployed/uninsured. It provides over $17 million of uncompensated care to those with little or no health insurance each year.


CMN Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. Hurley Children's Hospital was invited to belong in 1990 because we offer the most outstanding pediatric care in our region regardless of the family's ability to pay.
