Our Mission

The Floating Hospital is the largest provider of healthcare to homeless families and domestic violence survivors living in New York City’s shelters and safe houses.

Its mission is to provide exceptional, compassionate healthcare to diverse and underserved communities, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.

In 1866 we were launched as New York City’s first charity pediatric clinic on a ship docked in lower Manhattan, and we’ve had the privilege of providing a healthier and more hopeful future to over 5 million New Yorkers. Today, as a Federally Qualified Health Center, The Floating Hospital continues its historic legacy as “Family Doctor to New York City Families in Need.”

Your gift will help provide our families with free healthcare.
