Make an impact on families in need
Continuing our legacy of bringing patients to healthcare, The Good Health Shuttle serves a diverse patient population in a dynamic city.
Please give a contribution today and help us continue to make healthcare accessible for New Yorkers in need.
The coronavirus pandemic may have slowed New York City down, but it didn’t stop The Floating Hospital from providing essential services throughout the crisis. All through COVID-19, we provided our patients and our staff with safe, comfortable and reliable transportation to and from our main clinic in Long Island City.
You can make an impact and ensure that we can continue this vital service that helps patients and their families receive the primary healthcare they need all year ‘round by making a donation right now.
Access to healthcare is as important as the care itself
Today, The Floating Hospital’s Good Health Shuttle vehicles transport families throughout NYC living in more than 300 far-flung homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses, and those “doubled up” with families and friends. We help patients from all five boroughs keep their medical appointments by removing the barriers, worry and costs of getting to the doctor. Our fleet also delivers much needed essentials to families such as diapers, personal hygiene supplies and medical prescriptions.

Did you know that the CARES Act, the sweeping stimulus bill passed by Congress earlier this year in response to COVID-19, makes it possible for all eligible tax payers to claim a deduction for up to $300 in charitable giving, or $600 for a household filing jointly? So, as long as you make your gift to The Floating Hospital before December 31, you can use it towards credit on 2020 tax return!
The Floating Hospital Foundation is a tax exempt 501 (c) not for profit organization. All donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Did you know that The Floating Hospital has received 100% out of 100% from Charity Navigator for Finance & Accountability? So, you can give with confidence knowing that your support is being put to good use!
Public-health protocols during COVID necessitate that we change our delivery model to comply with social distancing guidelines, reducing our transportation abilities by 85 percent. To maintain the current need and to accommodate an increased patient load with the opening of our new main clinic this year, we must expand our fleet. Please support this vital service for New York’s most vulnerable population.
