Genesys, Hurley and McLaren-Flint partner with GFHC



GENESEE COUNTY — To better serve the Flint and Genesee County community, the area’s three hospital systems, Genesys Health System, Hurley Medical Center, and McLaren-Flint have partnered with the Greater Flint Health Coalition to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) — a new federal requirement of all non-profit hospitals to better understand the communities they serve and strategically invest resources to improve the health of residents over the long-term.

As founding members of the Greater Flint Health Coalition, Genesys Health System, Hurley Medical Center, and McLaren-Flint completed the CHNA by collectively supporting and expanding the GFHC’s Community Data Scorecard, a data collection tool that includes 265 community health metrics monitoring demographic, social, economic, environmental, healthcare access, healthcare cost, and public health status measures and data for Flint and Genesee County.

Through the leadership of Genesys Health System, Hurley Medical Center, McLaren-Flint, and the Greater Flint Health Coalition, this CHNA collected and analyzed data from a network of partners including public health professionals, health insurers, physicians, government agencies, school systems, businesses, and residents.

In the coming months, Genesys Health System, Hurley Medical Center, McLaren-Flint, and the Greater Flint Health Coalition will continue working together on an Implementation Plan to strategically improve the health of Flint and Genesee County residentsin order to maximize the benefit to the community.
