Well + Good
The Floating Hospital’s Women’s Wellness Day was held on Saturday, May 15, the first of its 2021 bi-annual such events. Patients received mammograms and other preventive healthcare, beauty bags, clothing and accessories, and were also treated to a delicious and healthy lunch prepared by Maria Loi, chef/owner of Loi Estiatorio. Many thanks to her, our staff, sponsors and friends who helped make this a success: Leota clothiers, Hudson + Bleecker, Garment District for Gowns, Quest Diagnostic, Direct Relief, Coach Bags and Mariela Rodriguez.
Movin’ on up
The Floating Hospital has started the long-awaited move into our new flagship clinic located at 21-01 41st Ave., just a few blocks from our current location. Administrative staff were the first to relocate this month, and clinical staff will begin their move June 7. We except to be fully occupied and ready to receive patients in the new clinic by June 14. Our new home is double the size with three floors of dedicated suites for primary, dental and behavioral-health care; spacious waiting rooms; and a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen and learning space. Stay tuned for more updates from our new medical home. A less visible upgrade to our service to the community is the migration to a new electronic health records system that provides sophisticated patient recordkeeping for our integrated practices and will incorporate relevant Social Determinants of Health data to better define patient needs.
