OUR
2022 INSIDE REPORT
IMPACT

PRESIDENT & CEO PRESIDENT

Many of us have heard or used the phrase, "Imagine the impact you will make." This can be said for nearly every decision we make, but the strength of the impact can vary based on the situation. We recognize the opportunity to make a positive impact when a person chooses Hurley for their care. The moment a patient decides to come through our doors or visit us virtually, it is on us to deliver the positive impact they hope for. We don't take this responsibility lightly. We often meet people in their most vulnerable state, whether a traumatic injury, a newly-diagnosed condition, an elective surgery, or the birth of a child. Every decision surrounding these events is important. As a donor, you are part of the positive impact Hurley Medical Center brings to the lives of

its patients. We are grateful for your donations, which help purchase lifesaving equipment, toys to distract our youngest patients, assistive devices for hospital after care, or other items that lighten the effects of an illness or injury. Your help matters. Thank you for your continued support of Hurley so we can make a difference in the lives of the patients we are so privileged to serve.

Sincerely,

IMPACT, like beauty, may be in the eyes of the beholder. As you read through another proudful compilation of stories and updates from the Hurley Foundation, Hurley Medical Center, and Hurley Children’s Hospital, you’ll no doubt pick up on our bias that tremendous accomplishments have been made through this historic institution. If you’ve never been a recipient of any of Hurley’s medical services, nor have your family or friends, you may see things differently. Still, there is a good chance that you have felt the impact of Hurley somewhere in your local community.

In and around Genesee County, we seek to impact the health of our communities. Regardless of what hospital you choose or whose urgent care you’ve tried, Hurley strives to be part of your journey to better health. Perhaps you participated in one of Hurley’s Healthy Living Series that put you in direct conversation with a physician for hernia repair, joint replacement, diabetes, or women’s health. Maybe you saw us at the CRIM with volunteers and staff at the medical tent, or at your local church health fair. If so, no doubt, “Nurse T” was there. Our community collaborations extend to the YMCA, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, the Flint Farmers’ Market, and

many others that care about your health and well-being. Sometimes, our impact comes from reducing negative impacts. We have community-based programs for injury prevention, including car seat safety. Our Nurse-Family Partnership® program matches pregnant, first-time moms with specially educated nurses to assure a healthy start for their babies. Our Food FARMacy addresses food insecurity while helping improve chronic conditions through better nutrition. Our unique Trauma Recovery Center helps victims rebuild lives torn apart by crime.

We celebrate the impact that Hurley, our staff, volunteers, donors, and supporters make on this regional community we are honored to serve. Whether a lifetime of care for your family, or over a century of care in your backyard, Hurley is here. Thank you for reading and for your support in helping us keep our IMPACT alive.

PINK PAR-TEE

The Pink Par-Tee nonprofit Fund provides financial support to help local women undergoing breast cancer treatment meet basic needs, decrease stress levels, and allow those in active treatment to focus on healing. Each year, the Pink Par-Tee Committee hosts a variety of events at Warwick Country Club in Grand Blanc and chooses organizations to distribute monies raised per the fund’s intent. We thank Nancy Gignac, the Committee, and their Title Sponsors, Security Credit Union and Eagle Excavating, for raising $63,000 to support Hurley Foundation’s Breast Cancer Navigation Fund. Marsha Schmit, Hurley Medical Center’s Breast Health Navigator, assisted 486 patients and provided 333 rides to and from treatment with this extraordinary donation!

To learn more: https://pinkpartee.com/

The Tough Cookie award celebrates patients nominated by Hurley Rehabilitation Services’ staff who have demonstrated courage, perseverance, and a true triumphant spirit. Donations from this event go directly to help supplement the staff’s pursuit of continued education and materials so they continue delivering unparalleled excellence in care.

This year’s donations provided: Yearly memberships in CEU Programs: Speech Pathology (5), Occupational Therapy (10), and Physical Therapy (17).

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Your donations make a difference. These examples showcase how Foundation funds spent truly help the Medical Center.

TABLETS FOR TEENS

Hurley Foundation has collaborated with JJ Hecht II, President of Toys for Hospitalized Children, and the Community Foundation of Greater Flint for four consecutive years to bring the Tablets for Teens program to Hurley Children’s Hospital. These donations include iPads, headphones, bluetooth assistants, and Hulu gift cards to Hurley patients who are 13-21 years old. The items go home with patients undergoing long-term treatments. The motto of Toys for Hospitalized Children is: “happy teens heal faster,” which is exemplified through these gifts, which go a long way to uplift spirits and boost morale.

NIC-VIEW

Hurley Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) recently installed state-of-the-art “Nic-View” cameras to allow parents and family members to see how their child is doing even when they cannot physically be here. Donations to our NICU help us fund projects like this to comfort and support families.

“Having a baby in the NICU can be an emotional rollercoaster to many parents. The Nic-View cameras are a great asset to promote bonding when parents can’t be with their infants. The cameras help decrease parents’ anxiety, knowing they can view their bundle of joy, 24/7. They are comforted knowing their babies are being well taken care of while they aren’t there. The cameras have allowed us to focus on family-centered care by including siblings, grandparents, and aunts and uncles who cannot visit the babies in person,” said Amber Arkles, NICU Clinical Coordinator.

NEW EMERGENCY SERVICES ENDOWMENT

The Hurley Foundation, in partnership with Hurley Medical Center, announced the inception of the Dr. Michael Jaggi Emergency Services Endowment in 2022. Coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the renovation of the Emergency Department, this new endowment honors our frontline heroes who served our community during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Endowed donations are invested and the interest earned will be used for equipment, staff education, and patient care items.

In navigating the uncharted territory of COVID-19, clinicians and nonclinical staff looked to the Director of Emergency Services and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Jaggi, as one of Hurley's guiding lights. We thank Dr. Jaggi for his leadership and continued service to Hurley Medical Center. A donor wall will feature individuals who give $250 or more to the Dr. Michael Jaggi Emergency Services Endowment. These donors will also receive a copy of “The Beacon on the Hill, The Complete History of Hurley Medical Center.”

To donate to the Dr. Michael Jaggi Emergency Services Endowment, go to: www.hurleyfoundation.org

IN MEMORY OF CHARLES A. PUMKLIN:

FRIEND, COLLEAGUE, TEACHER, AND CLINICIAN

June 21,1976 - February 2, 2022

Charles Pumklin was a dedicated and beloved Physician's Assistant in Hurley Medical Center's Emergency Department. He was known for his passion in taking care of patients and his "Hurley family." When Charles unexpectedly passed away, a grief-stricken team wanted to honor his legacy, so a special plaque in his memory will be hung outside the GRID Workroom in the Emergency Department. Donations in honor of Charles can be made to the Dr. Michael Jaggi Emergency Services Endowment, as an enduring tribute to his service. The endowment's interest provides equipment, staff education, and patient care items.

DOCTOR JABBAR

Hurley Children’s Hospital is fortunate to have pediatric specialists like Dr. Muhammad Jabbar who are instrumental in improving the health of youngsters and making life-changing impacts. Brigette Crawley is one such patient.

Feb. 23, 2022 Dear Dr. Jabbar, I wanted to write and thank you for everything you did for me and my family when I was your patient. It’s hard to believe we were with you for about ten years. We were referred to you right after my Type 1 diabetes diagnosis since you were the only pediatric endocrinologist in the area. We’re so thankful we had you! It’s never fun going to the doctor’s, especially when you’re a shy kid like I was, but you made me feel comfortable and it was always a good experience. Not only did you keep my diabetes on track, but you also diagnosed my celiac disease when I was struggling so much with those symptoms. I’m glad to say my GI tract is healed and my last A1c was 6.2%! Not bad, right?

I also thought you might like to hear that I’m currently in my second semester of medical school at the University of Toledo. It has been absolutely incredible. I’m keeping my specialty options open, but find myself continually drawn to endocrinology. I’m happy to think I could follow in your footsteps and help fill a desperate need in healthcare right now for more passionate and caring endocrinologists – especially in an underserved region such as Flint.

Wherever life takes me, I wanted to let you know you were such a formative part of my journey in medicine. I hope this letter lifts your spirits a little and reminds you what a difference you’ve made in so many people’s lives, and how your work carries on through those you’ve inspired.

Sincerely, Brigette Crawley

What is CMN?

In 1990, Hurley was invited to join Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) because we offer the most outstanding, kid-centered care in our region and we do so regardless of any family’s ability to pay. Hurley is one of 170 CMN Hospitals across North America. Our CMN pediatric service territory includes 15 counties extending as far north as Alpena, Mount Pleasant to the west, a portion of the Thumb as well as Genesee and Shiawassee counties. When you see the CMN yellow balloon graphic throughout the communities we serve, please remember our mission: “Change Kids Health. Change the Future.”

MALAKI EDWARDS: THE IMPACT OF HOPE

Malaki Edwards excelled in sports. While his goal was to earn a college scholarship in baseball, he was also a talented football player. His bright future changed dramatically on August 26, 2021. A senior on the Flushing Raiders football team, he had scored three touchdowns at Atwood Stadium during the first game of the varsity season. When the fourth quarter started, he took a wrong step, got hit, and let out a scream that his mother, Clara, still hears in her memory. Malaki was rushed by ambulance across the street to Hurley. The news was bleak.

“This is bad,” said trauma surgeon, Dr. Gul Raj Sashwani-Daswani. “He has a torn artery and if we don’t get him into surgery now, he could lose his foot or even his entire leg. Trust me. I’ll treat him like he’s my son.”

Six hours later, Malaki came out of surgery and began the first of 29 long days at Hurley. He spent 26 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. His leg and foot were spared, but he didn’t know what to expect. What would this

injury mean to his scholarship chances? What if he couldn’t play again? The skilled team at Hurley worked on both his physical and emotional recovery. His primary nurse, Tammy McDonald, could empathize with his roller coaster of emotions since her own son was a junior football player. She kept him from sinking into depression, while also motivating him.

Malaki said, “Tammy believed in me. She and nurse Christina Schmidt gave me hope to keep going.”

Dr. Matthew Sardelli performed the ACL, PCL, and LCL reconstructive surgery for Malaki’s knee. Months of physical therapy were required.

Today, Malaki is at Madonna College on a baseball scholarship and is pursuing a nursing degree. It’s his goal to be a role model for other injured athletes. He’s learned firsthand how important hope is in the healing process. His name means “God’s messenger.” Perhaps his life-altering injury will allow him to impact others with the gift of hope.

CHARLOTTE FULLER: CANCER TREATMENT CLOSER TO BAY CITY

Seven-year-old Charlotte Fuller and her nine-year-old sister, Lilith, live in Bay City. In July 2021, they were enjoying a water park splash pad when giggles and pleasure were quickly replaced by tears and pain when Charlotte complained that it hurt to walk. Her mom, Kelsey, thought it might be growing pains. The next morning, she didn’t improve. They went to see their pediatrician, Dr. VanGelderen. Lab work was done. When the test results came in, Kelsey received a phone call and was told to take Charlotte to Hurley right away.

Hurley? Neither Kelsey nor her mom, Karen Amon, had any idea what to expect. They’d never been to this Children’s Miracle Network hospital. The cancer diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia sent shock waves through the family. Charlotte’s first admission lasted seven days and was followed by weekly visits for chemotherapy. Besides the physical toll, was the sadness that came from losing her beautiful, long, hair. Her family surrounded her with love and encouragement and reassured her that everything was going to be OK.

Grandma Karen echoes the family’s sentiment. “If you have to go through a bad situation, Hurley is where you want to be,” she said. “We appreciate it here. Charlotte has received the best care from the best professionals. Everyone has been so kind from the valet service, to the lovely ladies at the front desk, to the entire Clinic team.”

On March 21, 2022, Charlotte entered the maintenance phase of treatment. This entails daily oral chemotherapy and weekly labs. If things continue to go well, her treatment should wrap up around October 2023. Until then, this feisty, determined, girlie girl who loves to dance and wear fancy dresses will be surrounded by all the love her family can provide. They are grateful for the impact of Hurley Children’s Hospital on Charlotte’s life.

As of September 2022, there were 108 kids in active oncology follow up at Hurley Children's Hospital.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE

Located in the heart of Linden, Michigan, Alpine Marketplace is no stranger to giving back to its community. Owners, managers, and employees encourage customers to do the same. In June 2022, Alpine Marketplace hosted its first-ever round up campaign for Hurley kids. They raised more than $1,300 in just four weeks to help children like Aubrielle, who is being treated for cancer at Hurley, and happens to live just a mile from the store.

ALPINE MARKETPLACE ROUND UP MADE WITH LOVE

Throughout the past year, our pediatric patients have been the grateful recipients of several gift-in-kind donations. Handmade blankets, colorful pillowcases, new toys, stuffed animals, arts and crafts, electronics, board games, and more have passed through the doors of Hurley with a goal of making our patients and families feel a little more comfortable.

Lauren Fitzpatrick was born at 26 weeks, weighing just two pounds and was cared for in Hurley’s NICU. When it was time to do her senior project, she contacted the very NICU nurse that had been her primary care provider nearly 20 years ago and raised money to purchase some much-needed supplies for our tiniest patients

In 2022, we lost Monica Potasnik, a beloved donor and friend of Hurley kids. Over a period of 16 years, Monica created thousands of blankets for Hurley Children’s Hospital. She is missed!

Long-time supporter, Lonnie Alexander, hosted a birthday party and encouraged her friends and family to bring gifts for Hurley kids.

TEAM B.A.S.S. GIVES BACK

This summer, our friends at Team B.A.S.S. invited several Hurley miracle families to Mr. Greg’s pond for some fishing. They had a blast enjoying the sunshine while catching frogs, a huge catfish, and giant turtles.

We are so grateful for friends like these who care about creating fun memories for Hurley kids. This was the 14th year Greg has hosted “Wishin’ We Were Fishin” and we can’t wait to come back again next summer!

As an added bonus, our Hurley miracles were featured on an episode of Michigan Out of Doors. Scan to check it out.

ELLIE LECHOTA:

A DOWN RIGHT AWESOME HURLEY MIRACLE

Tiffany Lechota describes her daughter Ellie as a light to everyone she encounters. “She makes every day and every experience brighter.”

After navigating pregnancy during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and concerns with the care she was receiving at another area hospital, Tiffany had a gut feeling she needed to have her baby at Hurley. At 34 weeks, she found Dr. Moreno, who was willing to take her case. He discovered that Tiffany was preeclamptic and had gestational diabetes. She was admitted to Hurley for observation.

Less than 24 hours later, in the middle of a snowstorm, she was told her baby girl was coming and coming fast. Ellie Marie Lechota was delivered via emergency C-section on February 16, 2021. Ellie had issues with breathing and her sugar levels. She was taken to Hurley’s NICU.

A doctor asked the Lechotas if anyone had spoken to them about Down syndrome. This took their breath away and they had

no idea what to expect. Several days after bringing Ellie home, they received a call confirming this diagnosis.

Tiffany said, “It was a sit back in your seat moment. As a mom of a daughter, so many things went rushing through my mind. At that time, we still had very little information, but a year and a half later, there’s not one thing I would change about my child. We have learned to take every day for what it is, we see the good in all of it, and we want to help other families like ours when and if they need it.”

Today, Ellie is a happy, sassy little girl whose life revolves around the race track. She even inspired long-time Hurley supporters, Scott and Sarah Quaal, to transform their annual Racing for Miracles event to the new and improved “Down Right Awesome”

Modified Race which both raises money for Hurley Children’s Hospital and provides a platform for families like the Lechotas to raise awareness about Down syndrome.

Ellie Lechota is truly a miracle.

In May 2022, the 31st Anniversary Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Bowlathon returned to full capacity at Colonial Lanes in Flushing. More than 200 supporters of Hurley Children’s Hospital enjoyed an evening of laughter, cheer, and family-friendly bowling.

Hurley miracle families, community supporters, and hospital team members came together for the kids. New this year were large groups from Randy Wise Automotive, Kettering University ESports, and title sponsor, Dort Financial Credit Union. We were also fortunate to witness several miracle family reunions, including 26-year-old Isaiah Bingham, who bowled alongside the family of his former oncologist, Dr. Susumu Inoue. It was a fabulous evening, and we are excited for the next event on Friday, May 19, 2023!

M.E.M. CONSTRUCTION

& CONTRACTING CREATES MIRACLES AT THE MUSEUM!

After years of supporting the Children’s Miracle Network at Hurley via the Speedway Miracle Tournament, M.E.M. Construction & Contracting stepped up in a big way to become the title sponsor of the “Miracles at the Museum” picnic on July 26, 2022. You may have seen examples of Pontiacbased M.E.M. Construction's work if you’ve been inside a Speedway or 7-Eleven convenience store in mid-Michigan.

“Miracles at the Museum” was presented in partnership with Sovita Credit Union and Co-op Solutions Miracle Match program. Hurley miracle

families, pediatric residents, Hurley team members, and community guests enjoyed exploring the newly expanded, 107,000 square foot facility. This included the “Hurley Children’s Hospital” exhibit in the Hagerman Street Early Childhood Learning Center, the popular water table, scavenger hunt, and Mid-Michigan NOW “Kids Cast” news desk.

We are grateful to all who attended this year’s event and especially to our friends at M.E.M. Construction & Contracting for their commitment to the pediatric patients treated at Hurley Children’s Hospital.

KETTERING UNIVERSITY: GAMING FOR A PURPOSE

This year, the growing Extra Life program at Hurley Children’s Hospital leveled up with the appointment of Kettering University’s Varsity ESports Team as our 2022 Extra Life ambassadors.

Introduced in 2008, Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games to support their local CMN hospital. Video games, board games, card games–you name it, are all on the table during Extra Life. Participants raise funds for children's hospitals in the United States and Canada.

Student-athletes and coaches at Kettering used their passion for gaming to increase participation and awareness of Extra Life so fundraising could soar to new heights for Hurley kids and their families in 2022. They raised more than $2,600 in their first year, and aim to host a larger, in-person gaming event by the end of 2022. Go Bulldogs!

The third annual “Let’s Make Miracles” Radiothon with Townsquare Media, presented by Dort Financial Credit Union, was held on September 15 and 16. The Townsquare family of stations, including CARS 108, Club 93.7, Banana 101.5, 1470 WFNT, and US 103.1 shared heartwarming, inspirational stories of doctors, nurses, and hospital staff who make miracles happen for families at the region’s only Children’s Miracle Network hospital. The $82,015 raised by this event will fund children’s services and programs at Hurley Children’s Hospital.

SPEEDWAY STORES FUEL MIRACLES FOR HURLEY KIDS

The 31st annual Speedway Miracle Golf Tournament was held in Dayton, Ohio on June 13-14, 2022. The tournament is the forefront of Speedway’s fundraising efforts for CMN hospitals like Hurley. Funds raised help children’s hospitals provide critical equipment and resources to help treat sick and injured kids in the communities Speedway serves.

Late last year, Speedway was acquired by the 7-Eleven family of brands. This acquisition brings on many exciting new opportunities for our most robust national partner, including the onboarding of several new fundraising locations which will be embarking on

their first campaigns for Hurley Children's Hospital during the 2022 holiday season.

Our 2022 CMN champion, Charlie Lash, and her mom, Kimberlie, were invited by Speedway corporate sponsor, PepsiCo, to attend the Miracle Tournament. Charlie met miracle kids like her from all across the country and even got to have a very special meet and greet with CMN co-founder, Marie Osmond.

We are grateful to our Speedway friends, old and new, for always going above and beyond to make this event so memorable for Hurley families like Charlie’s.

What could be more special than honoring the birth of a child? When the Labor & Delivery Unit at Hurley requested an item that could be given to parents and their new babies to commemorate their special birth experience, several area credit unions stepped up to help.

Six members of Hurley Children’s Hospital’s Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) Advisory Council worked in conjunction with Co-op Solutions Miracle Match program to raise more than $30,000 to purchase diaper bags for every new baby born at Hurley in 2022… and they didn’t stop there!

In April, area credit unions came together once again to celebrate Children’s Hospitals Week with Hurley. From sharing Hurley miracle stories told by their branch employees, to raising awareness by posting about CMN programs on social media, to making donations, our area credit unions really went above and beyond to celebrate this year. We are so grateful for our CU4Kids family and their compassion for Hurley kids!

This year, Children’s Miracle Network hospitals celebrated 35 years of partnering with Walmart and Sam’s Clubs to help kids live better. Stores in the FlintSaginaw-Bay City area showed up in a BIG way.

Before their campaign even began, several associates volunteered to assemble diaper bags for new babies born at Hurley. During their four week campaign, Walmart and Sam’s Club locations throughout midMichigan and the thumb raised more than $138,500 for Hurley’s pediatric patients and their families.

We truly wouldn’t be able to do what we do at Hurley without the continued support of these dedicated associates and young customers like Justin, who donated some of his birthday money to help kids like him.

JOANN, the nation’s leading fabric and craft specialty retailer, has inspired customers to create and give back with their hands, hearts, and minds. In 2022, JOANN locations in our area fundraised year-round for Hurley kids. In addition to encouraging customers to donate at the register, they assembled more than 300 activity kits for Hurley’s Child and Family Services team to give to patients. We are fortunate to have JOANN as the newest member of our CMN family.

There’s nothing quite like seeing a room full of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals supporters who’ve waited so long to safely gather, finally be able to enjoy an in-person fundraising event.

For the past two years, our friends at Costco-Midland have faithfully fundraised for Hurley Children’s Hospital during their annual CMN campaign. Last year, many of their CMN fundraising events had to be scaled back or canceled altogether due to COVID-19 restrictions.

This year, once they got the green light for a CMN Bowlathon, they knew they had to blow it out of the water… and they did. On Saturday, May 14, over 120 team Costco members bowled at Valley Lanes in Midland with their families, friends and Hurley miracles like Lydia, to support their local CMN Hospital: Hurley Children’s Hospital. The team at Costco #1420 in Midland raised more than $30,000 for Hurley kids. We are so grateful for their community’s support of this amazing campaign.

Since 1999, Love’s Travel Stops have been making miracles happen for Hurley kids. This year, for the first time, Love’s customers had the option to donate at the register pin pad when using a credit card. Their fundraising at the Bridgeport location increased 97%. We’re grateful for this new technology and the incredible impact it will have on Hurley kids.

On Tuesday, July 18, participating Dairy Queen locations throughout mid and northern Michigan donated a portion of every blizzard sold back to Hurley kids. It was a sweet day full of fun, summer memories with our DQ family!

RETAIL PHILANTHROPY

Volunteers in the shop are proud of their service. They enjoy helping customers find items and meeting new people that circle through the shop. Many have special responsibilities, like assisting with perfume orders, that create a level of ownership and pride in the shop. The relationships built are important to our volunteers, making this a comforting space. The shop even remains open until midnight four days a week to serve our later shift customers.

Many customers probably don’t realize that funds spent in the shop go back to Hurley, making the shop one of the larger donors to the Medical Center. This impact, albeit quiet, is mighty, as these funds over the years have been used to update units, purchase new equipment, and for scholarships. While the shop’s fundraising efforts have quantifiable impact, the relationships and access to the items sold are just as impactful.

GERALDINE REDMOND: VOLUNTEER

Hurley Medical Center’s Lobby Shop is a 500 square foot retail space that provides employees, patients, and visitors access to the comforts of home, while actively participating in the Hurley Foundation’s fundraising efforts. The shop sells gifts, housewares, baby items, spa products, jewelry, candy, and more, with a focus on local, handmade, and organic merchandise.

The shop’s impact exceeds expectations. Volunteer Services oversees the shop under the leadership of Michelle Reed, Lobby Shop Manager; an Assistant; and volunteer staff. This small shop is not only beautiful and inviting, but offers diverse merchandise ranging from basic necessities to unique gifts.

“Michelle is ahead of the trends and knows her customer base very well,” said Jordan Brown, Director of Volunteer and Community Engagement. “Her priority is to provide customers with organic, natural products that promote healthy options, even in choices such as skincare and snacks.”

“Many of the volunteers look forward to their "favorite" employees and regular visitors and are concerned when they haven't seen them in awhile,” said Michelle. “Many plan their monthly appointments and travel around their volunteer schedule–not the other way around.”

From 2018-2021, the Lobby Shop’s total revenue was $1,867,282.53. These funds are donated from the Volunteer Corps fund to support Medical Center initiatives.

HURLEY BORN AND RAISED, HURLEY PATIENT, AND NOW HURLEY VOLUNTEER

Geraldine Redmond’s time as a Hurley volunteer is relatively new compared to some of her volunteer colleagues; however, Geraldine is not new to Hurley. Her mother, Betha Sanders, retired from Hurley’s Dietary Department in 1985. Geraldine and her children were born at Hurley, and she volunteers 18 hours a week in our Admitting Department.

A Flint native and community advocate, Geraldine has served this community most of her life. She graduated from Northwestern High School, served as Beecher School Board President and Cheer and Pom Pom Coach, and was employed for many years at Mt. Morris Township. She retired from the Genesee County Health Department.

She currently serves as the President and Resident Commissioner of the Flint Housing Commission Board and as a board member of Healthier Black Elders. She enjoys her three children, three grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren, and likes to dance, bowl, and skate in her free time.

Recently, Hurley Foundation has become a large part of Geradline’s week. Most of her service is in the Admitting Department, but she has also volunteered at CMN Miracle Picnic and on behalf of Hurley Volunteer Services at the Crim Festival of Races.

“Volunteer Services has brought so much joy in my life by helping people with a smile,” says Geraldine. “Most of all, it has provided me a way to give back. I was a patient in the Burn Unit, and I tell people that Hurley saved my life.”

“We are lucky to have Geraldine as a volunteer, and are ecstatic to add “Foundation Board Member” to her Hurley résumé,” said Jordan Brown, Director of Volunteer and Community Engagement. “She exemplifies service with a big smile.”

Volunteer Services has remained constant and steady throughout the pandemic and has been allowed to function without many changes to the department, whereas many hospitals both locally and throughout the country have either limited or closed programs. Volunteer Services has kept the momentum of a growing program and offers volunteer opportunities to pre-professional students, retirees, and many in-between. This program is only as strong and diverse as the volunteers that serve Hurley and we are thankful. The impact these individuals make is tremendous. From ages 16-94, there are hundreds of unique stories and representatives of our community in the volunteer program.

GEARING UP TO DONATE HOYT AND COMPANY, OFFICIAL HURLEY GEAR

The Hurley Foundation’s partnership with Hoyt and Company, a Genesee County vendor, began in 2020. Hoyt is a one-stop shop for oficial Hurley logo gear sold by the Hurley Foundation.

As nonprofit organizations navigate an evolution of how donors give in 2022, Hurley Foundation has spent time focusing on passive giving strategies. One strategy that has proved successful is our Hurley gear sales, which focus on selling comfortable, stylish gear. In turn, Hoyt and Company gives a portion of all sales back to the foundation.

While the Hurley Foundation has sold t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, and sweatshirts to support its unrestricted general fund, departments have used items available through Hoyt and Company to celebrate health weeks, retirements, and holidays and have replaced nonlocal vendors for current screenprinting needs. Hurley Foundation’s community partners, such as Health Alliance Plan (HAP), have also used Hoyt and Company.

Omar Sims of HAP Michigan explains, “We are happy to support Hurley, our helpful awesome partner, by purchasing friendly and fun swag from Hoyt. Besides its outstanding service and reasonable prices, a portion of our sales helps our Hurley family. It’s just another way we can help within the restraints of our budget.”

Kip Darcy, Chair of the Hurley Foundation Board of Directors said, "I was surprised and delighted to learn how successful gear sales have been and the impact they have on Hurley team spirit. I love seeing Hurley pride when out and about!"

SHOP AND SUPPORT

Hoyt and Company has donated over $40,000 to the Hurley Foundation from December 2020 to September 2022.

SERVICE SOCIETY

KIDS HELPING THEIR COMMUNITY

AND HURLEY

The Hurley Service Society (HSS) has been busy in its inaugural year. It’s made up of schools, youth organizations, and individuals who have a special interest in community service and volunteerism and want to use their time, talent, and gifts to support Hurley Medical Center.

It provides a perfect service opportunity for kids to have a hands-on approach in developing and implementing a movement or campaign from start to finish with the assistance of the Hurley Foundation and Volunteer Services Department. It gives students who might have the desire to support their community but don’t know where to start, access to the tools needed.

Kids who participate in these campaigns choose a fund beneficiary and create a campaign that best fits their interests and resources. Here are some examples of HSS campaigns this year:

FLUSHING MIDDLE SCHOOLCMN FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

Girl Scout Troop 10001 worked with Hurley’s Volunteer Services to pitch a fundraising idea to the National Junior Honor Society and Student Council at Flushing Middle School, where they are currently students. They sold Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals paper balloons and donated proceeds from their school dance, resulting in $3,000 for pediatric patients at Hurley.

DURAND AREA SCHOOLSCMN CAMPAIGN

Five students at Durand Middle School decided to do a service project to support Children's Miracle Network. With the help of a dedicated teacher and a supportive principal, what started as a CMN balloon icon fundraiser between one small group of students, turned into an entire school district raising over $2,000 for kids at Hurley Children's Hospital.

Beyond fundraising efforts, students are encouraged to volunteer at Hurley as student volunteers, in a group at a Hurley event, through an Extra Life Gaming Campaign, or through projects at home, such as making handmade cards for patients.

ZOEY'S BRAVERY BRACELETS

Fenton 6th grader, Zoey, made and sold amazing bracelets to raise money for Hurley’s Pediatric Cancer Services. After her family’s experience with cancer, Zoey wanted to help her community and give back. She donated the proceeds, as well as a few of her bracelets, for kids with cancer.

FCCA'S HEARTS FOR HURLEY

Staff and students at the Flint Cultural Center Academy hosted a service project on campus for Valentine's Day: "Hearts for Hurley." They sold lollipops along with paper hearts that students wrote messages on and filled the windows of the cafeteria! They quickly raised over $600 for Hurley.

FLINT SOUTHWESTERN ACADEMY

General Motors partners with Flint Southwestern to provide a summer student internship program. The United Way matches the funds the students save for college to allocate to a local non-profit project. This year, the group selected Hurley Children’s Center as the recipient of their $2,000 match.

BENEFIT BALL

2022 HURLEY BENEFIT BALL

For the first time since 2020, the Hurley Benefit Ball was back in person at a new location–Signature Chophouse in Flushing. On Saturday, May 7, three different ballrooms were transformed into “Wonderlands” and guests enjoyed the beautiful outdoor courtyard and mingled with friends. Funds raised from the 41st Ball will support therapy programs, transportation, and care items for Hurley’s Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit. This new, 14-bed inpatient unit serves patients ages 12 through 17 with both medical and psychiatric needs here in their own community. The unit complements Hurley’s full-service line of behavioral health offerings.

GOLF CLASSIC BENEFITS NEW TRAUMA SERVICES ENDOWMENT

On September 12, 2022, the Hurley Foundation hosted the Hurley Trauma Center’s 38th Fall Golf Classic at Clio Country Club. Golfers enjoyed a day of fun, including special prize holes and raffles, all while supporting a great cause.

Proceeds support the newly-established Trauma Services Endowment. Through this Endowment, donations become a “forever gift” towards a future of support for Hurley’s Level I Trauma & Burn Center and Level II Pediatric Trauma Center. Endowment funds are invested and the income earned is used for necessary improvements, equipment, and staff training. This will allow Hurley to continue to provide the highest levels of trauma and burn care using the latest advancements and state-of-the-art equipment to treat the most critically ill adults and children in our region around the clock, 24/7.

PINK NIGHT

2022 PINK NIGHT PALOOZA

PEACE, LOVE & PALOOZA

Celebrating 14 years of this “Party With A Purpose,” presenting sponsor, Hurley Medical Center, and founding sponsor, Financial Plus Credit Union, returned this year with Pink Night Palooza. The event, held on October 20, 2022, was broadcast from Davison Country Club on CW46 and streamed by Mid-Michigan NOW. New to this year’s event, was the option for both sponsors and attendees to choose where their donations went – either Hurley’s Breast Cancer Navigation Services or Adult Cancer Services. After being virtual for two years, this sold-out event returned to a live audience who enjoyed an evening of food, games, Pink Partini drinks, photos, music, an online auction and the excitement of the return of the BraRtistry fashion show, all hosted by comedian Melissa Hager and 103.9 The Fox morning show co-host, Aricka Truchan.

Cancer patients and survivors shared their stories of inspiration and showed their appreciation for support they received through funds raised not only from this event, but from donations and support from local businesses throughout the year.

These funds help make a difference in the lives of local cancer patients facing additional expenses associated with treatment, medication, transportation and numerous unforeseen challenges that accompany this disease. With our community’s support, we are able to bring a little Peace, Love & Palooza to their lives.

BUCKS’ PLAYER OF THE YEAR

TREATED AT HURLEY TRAUMATIC

INJURY TURNS INTO BONDING MOMENT BETWEEN SPANISH PLAYER & SPANISH-RAISED PHYSICIAN

Kalamazoo FC and the Flint City Bucks, the top two teams in the Great Lakes Division, were battling for first place in Kalamazoo. During this competitive match, Hugo Bacharach of the Flint City Bucks and a Kalamazoo player both went up for a header and collided heads. They were evaluated by the Kalamazoo athletic trainer, and were cleared to return to the field. Bacharach played the full 90 minutes, which on later reflection, was a mistake. He had suffered a major concussion.

Dr. Gul Sachwani-Daswani said, “Bacharach spent a couple of days on our pediatric floor to be monitored for this severe concussion, as he was 20 years old. Many don’t know that our pediatric floor serves patients who have not reached their 21st birthday."

“The care and support that Hugo received at Hurley was incredible. We are so grateful for all the Hurley staff that put him on his path to a full recovery,” said Flint City Bucks’ President, Costa Papista.

While everyone was relieved that Bacharach's recovery allowed him back to the field quickly and safely, and he later earned the Bucks’ Player of the Year, it was the connection between Bacharach and Dr. Sachwani-Daswani that transcended the impact of this patient-physician relationship. Both grew up in Spain playing soccer. While Dr. SachwaniDaswani joked that he didn’t have quite the career that Bacharach has, they bonded over their shared love of the sport.

“I had been watching Hugo play throughout the season, and was disappointed that he had an injury that resulted in him being my patient,” said Dr. Sachwani-Daswani. “However, it was a great joy to see him play again later in the season. My children love to attend Flint City Bucks games. Our whole family enjoys it and we are happy to have this relationship with Hugo on and off the field.”

JAMES J. HURLEY SOCIETY: LEAVING A LASTING LEGACY

The James J. Hurley Society recognizes individuals who have made a gift to the Hurley Endowment through an estate plan or cash gift of $10,000 or greater. These gifts can be structured in different ways to enable donors to meet their financial goals and their charitable aspirations.

Dr. Paul and Phyllis Schroeder joined the James J. Hurley Society on Dr. Schroeder’s 67th birthday: December 30, 1994. After his death on January 11, 2022, at the age of 94, the Hurley Foundation received a life insurance gift designated to the endowment. This gift helps ensure Hurley’s mission of “Clinical Excellence. Service to People” lives on.

Dr. Schroeder did his internship at Hurley Hospital from 1952 to 1953. In 1958, he completed his medical residency at Hurley and began his medical practice. He was boardcertified in Internal Medicine in 1962. His interest in nephrology led to him pioneering kidney dialysis in Genesee County in 1966, and Hurley's kidney transplant program in 1970. During his career, he served as Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Hurley for 20 years: 1971 to 1991. He was board-certified in Nephrology in 1980 and was a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. He founded the Nephrology and Hypertension practice, which he directed until 2006. Dr. Schroeder retired in 2008 after over 50 years of medical practice. During his career, he treated tens of thousands of people and worked tirelessly to improve patient care. He completed patient rounds seven days a week, including holidays and midnight emergencies. He mentored hundreds of young doctors who came to Flint from around the world for medical training.

In 1998, Dr. Schroeder was honored with Hurley Medical Center's Pinnacle Award, Hurley's highest recognition of its physicians who epitomize the height of professionalism, show unwavering commitment to the community, demonstrate dedication to Hurley, and consistently and unfailingly embody Hurley's mission.

Dr. Schroeder’s enthusiastic and energetic life also included playing many sports, of which water skiing became his strongest and longestlasting passion. He learned to slalom, trick ski, jump, and ski barefoot, and competed in tournaments into his 80s, winning several state championships along the way!

CARING FOR TEENS' MENTAL HEALTH

On May 9, 2022, Hurley’s new 14-bed Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit received its license and began to admit patients just two days after this year’s Benefit Ball, which raised funds for the unit. Since 2005, there have been no inpatient behavioral health services for kids in Genesee County. Now that this new unit has opened, adolescents aged 12 to 17 years no longer need to leave the county, and their proximity to family, to receive treatment.

Hurley experts provide compassionate support during stressful times and help children cope more effectively with life issues, mental health distress, instability, and depression. This unique unit also allows us to accept patients who have a co-existing medical condition in addition to a primary mental health diagnosis. These hard-to-place adolescents may otherwise have had to remain on a medical floor where psychiatric services are not available. A specially trained care team, including psychiatrists, psychologists, physician assistants, social workers, counselors, and nurses, develop personalized care plans to help restore mental stability and achieve healthier lifestyles.

This $4 million project was funded in part through bond proceeds. The $550,000 donation from Panda Express created the Panda Cares Center of Hope–two rooms in the unit which include a Noisy Activity Room with a lounge for social interaction and sharing meals, and a Quiet Activity Room with low stimulation and seating areas. A $350,000 grant from The Roots & Wings Foundation helped purchase furniture and equipment.

NURSE T BUILDING TRUST AND UNITY

For over a year, Tarnesa Martin, RN, has served the greater Flint community in her Hurley role as Patient Resource and Community Advocate. She is a liaison for identifying health concerns and focuses on reducing healthcare disparities and improving access to care. Through her outreach efforts and persistence in being visible, relatable, and transparent at community events, she has become a trusted source of information, which has earned her a solid reputation as “Nurse T.”

She has reached over 1,000 residents and provided one-on-one education via health information tables featuring topics such as: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and kidney disease, as well as stress, anxiety, men’s health, menopause, and COVID-19. She empowered community members to become better versions of themselves by meeting them where they were and respectfully listening to their

concerns, such as fear of being diagnosed. A few of the many sites she attended included: Hasselbring Senior Center, Flint South Soup Kitchen, Northridge Academy (5th-8th graders), and Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village. Nurse T continued to build trust and unity by establishing relationships with many community leaders and partners. She was invited, and now serves on the boards and councils of: The Flint & Genesee County Literacy Network, Gun Prevention Violence Network, and Healthy Flint Research Coordinating Center. These partnerships not only avoid a duplication of services, but also demonstrate a united front for advancing health care.

One of Nurse T's primary goals is to reduce hospital readmissions and teach residents when to go to their primary care doctor, urgent care, or Emergency Department to seek health care.

Tarnesa said, “Listening to what matters to the community and being present and available rebuilds trust. I look forward to continuing education on chronic diseases and maintaining visibility to show that Hurley cares.”

PARTNERSHIP

: IMPROVING PREGNANCY OUTCOMES & CHILD HEALTH

The Nurse-Family Partnership® (NFP) program is a home visitation program that supports first-time mothers during their pregnancies through the child’s second birthday. Hurley has operated NFP since 2015 with highly trained nurses that are especially equipped to provide prenatal health education, childbirth education, breastfeeding support, child development information, and goal setting and life course development. They strive to meet each client’s unique needs, and supply them with portable cribs, diapers, and educational toys. Program referrals are received from Hurley partners, medical providers, and social service agencies. Clients can even selfrefer when applying for benefits in the MI Bridges system. The program is supported by a $985,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). In 2022, Hurley received an additional MDHHS grant of $55,915 through the American Rescue Plan Act to provide NFP clients with emergency supports such as grocery gift cards, gas cards, and infant formula.

Stephany Krepp, NFP Nurse Supervisor, said, “Our nurses are lactation counselors, childbirth educators, and car seat installation technicians. They are also trained in infant mental health intervention, child development screening, intimate partner violence screening and support, and motivational interviewing. Because of the emotional investment and stress that comes with working so closely with clients, the national average employment of an NFP nurse is just two years. Our average is four years! I have worked very hard to support my staff in any way I can, just like they support

clients. This team is full of caring, compassionate, and dedicated people, and keeping them is my greatest accomplishment. I couldn't have done it without the support of Mattie Pearson, who is always there when I need her.”

“There is a magic window during pregnancy…it’s a time when the desire to be a good mother and raise a healthy, happy child creates motivation to overcome incredible obstacles including poverty, instability, or abuse with the help of a well-trained nurse.”

RITE AID HEALTHY FUTURES GRANT IMPACTS FOOD ACCESS INITIATIVES

Rite Aid Healthy Futures awarded a $90,000 grant to support Hurley’s food access initiatives. Funds supplied staffing, healthy food, and patient supplies used for the Food FARMacy, pediatric nutrition counseling, and fruit and vegetable prescriptions for kids. These programs address food insecurity and promote and emphasize good nutrition by providing healthy foods, accompanied by one-on-one education, to improve chronic conditions and overall health of the patients Hurley serves.

Since 2017, Hurley's Food FARMacy has addressed food insecurity and improved patients’ health. Physicians refer patients to receive a seven-day supply of healthy food for their households each month for six months. Individuals of all ages and with chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and congestive heart failure are served. Patients are also connected to community resources, such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Double Up Food Bucks, so that the household can continue to enjoy these foods and improve health outcomes.

Food access initiatives at the Hurley Children's Center, which adjoins the Flint Farmers' Market, include the following:

• Pediatric Nutrition Counseling: clinical appointments are provided with a Registered Dietitian (RD). These consultations are not reimbursed through insurance. The RD helps families set goals to improve the health of infants through adolescents revolving around making healthy food choices, behavior change, and weight gain/loss.

• Fruit and vegetable prescriptions: All patients receive a prescription ordered through the electronic medical record at every visit to be "filled" for $15 of fresh fruits and vegetables, which can be redeemed at the Flint Farmers' Market or Flint Fresh Mobile Market.

Rite Aid and Rite Aid Healthy Futures celebrate more than 25 years of partnership with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. The charity offers health equity grants to these hospitals, including Hurley Children’s Hospital, to widen food access and improve health outcomes.

HURLEY’S TRAUMA RECOVERY CENTER IMPACTS VICTIMS OF CRIME

Hurley’s Trauma Recovery Center (TRC) was the first and is now one of the few TRCs in Michigan. This hospital-based program primarily helps those injured through domestic violence, physical and sexual assault, gunshots, and stabbings. A therapist and Care Coordinators give real, quantifiable help and advocate for patients who have been victims of crime. The program is funded through grants of $659,372 from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, $15,000 from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, and $10,000 from The Whiting Foundation.

Since 2018, the TRC has helped thousands of patients whose lives have been affected by crime. Through its continuous efforts of community engagement, education, creating and solidifying community partnerships, and providing excellent patient care, the TRC has an excellent referral system with several agencies, including the Genesee County Prosecutor's office.

Aid Healthy Futures awarded a $90,000 grant to support Hurley’s food access initiatives. Funds supplied staffing, healthy food, and patient supplies used for the Food FARMacy, pediatric nutrition counseling, and fruit and vegetable prescriptions for kids. These programs address food insecurity and promote and emphasize good nutrition by providing healthy foods, accompanied by one-on-one education, to improve chronic conditions and overall health of the patients Hurley serves.

Gaining and maintaining patients’ trust continues to be the TRC’s biggest challenge. Flint is greatly affected by poverty, crime, and a lack of resources. Many citizens have and continue to be affected by the lead water crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Many do not trust the government or those providing any aid.

Since 2017, Hurley's Food FARMacy has addressed food insecurity and improved patients’ health. Physicians refer patients to receive a seven-day supply of healthy food for their households each month for six months. Individuals of all ages and with chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and congestive heart failure are served. Patients are also connected to community resources, such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Double Up Food Bucks, so that the household can continue to enjoy these foods and improve health outcomes.

Food access initiatives at the Hurley Children's Center, which adjoins the Flint Farmers' Market, include the following:

● Pediatric Nutrition Counseling: clinical appointments are provided with a Registered Dietitian (RD). These consultations are not reimbursed through insurance. The RD helps families set goals to improve the health of infants through adolescents revolving around making healthy food choices, behavior change, and weight gain/loss.

● Fruit and vegetable prescriptions: All patients receive a prescription ordered through the electronic medical record at every visit to be "filled" for $15 of fresh fruits and vegetables, which can be redeemed at the Flint Farmers' Market or Flint Fresh Mobile Market.

Rite Aid and Rite Aid Healthy Futures celebrate more than 25 years of partnership with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. The charity offers health equity grants to these hospitals, including Hurley Children’s Hospital, to widen food access and improve health outcomes.

The TRC staff gain trust by giving victims a familiar face to associate with during a time when they need it the most. They accompany and help wherever needed, providing:

• Emergency shelter

• Crisis and emotional support, including safety planning

• Mental health services, including therapy

• Legal support, including court advocacy, personal protection orders, victim compensation

“Although we see tragedy and trauma daily due to the nature of our work, we continue to reset our empathy, making it a point to be the bridge to survivorship,” said Tia Coles, Project Coordinator.
