Healthcare is a fundamental human right. For more than 150 years, we have provided care to all who walk through our doors, regardless of ability to pay.

Join the Tugboat Society

The Tugboat Society is an association of monthly givers: caring people who make our mission real and families whole again. Together, we can rescue families on the edge, untethered by a crisis, like the loss of a job, a health issue or violence. We can help them get back home.


The Floating Hospital remains unchanged in its commitment to provide care, regardless of ability to pay to New York City’s most vulnerable residents, homeless families living in family shelters and domestic violence safe houses. For them we are an island of stability in their often turbulent, and ever-changing, world. Your support makes a difference.
