Since 1866

Millions of New Yorkers have entrusted us with their lives

As one of New York City’s oldest healthcare charities, The Floating Hospital has provided vital healthcare services to New Yorkers that need it the most. Our ability to support growing numbers depends on donors like you.

From helping underserved children in 1866 to giving health to those in need today, the floating hospital has always been a haven of health and wholeness for New Yorkers in need.

We provided 53,272 patient visits to families in need in 2012. Many of the city’s poorest, uninsured, and disenfranchised children and their families consider us their only healthcare option. Even though many of our patients are not covered by any form of insurance, we never refuse treatment when a family is unable to pay.
