Save the date for some Summer Lovin’

We are thrilled to return to celebrating our supporters with an in-person signature fundraiser, Monday, June 13. Themed “Summer of Love”—because all need a little TLC after two years of a pandemic—the event will take place at Current on Pier 59 from 6:30 to 9:30pm. With your comfort in mind, dinner will be served buffet-style to allow flexibility in dining and distancing, and the Edward Ellington Band will perform live. All proceeds support our work ensuing New York’s most vulnerable families have access to quality healthcare and more.

The Floating Hospital tech gets a high-powered boost

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney presented The Floating Hospital with a check for $925,000 on March 22, part of the $6.3 million in grants she secured for New York City non-profit and community groups. The funds will support upgrades to the clinic’s IT infrastructure and electronic health records system, increasing efficiencies and patient service.
