On Tuesday, December 6th, The Floating Hospital’s President, Sean Granahan, Esq., was honored at the Healthcare Heroes Awards Ceremony. As one of nine leaders in NYC health highlighted at the event, Granahan was celebrated for his dedication towards helping improve and better shape the healthcare industry, bridging access to care for thousands of New York City families, regardless of socioeconomic or legal status.
Hosted by the Queens Tribune and the Press of Southeast Queens, the Healthcare Heroes Awards offered many of New York’s trailblazers in healthcare today the opportunity to exchange ideas with others in their field. Members of organizations including Northwell Health, AdvantageCare Physicians & EmblemHealth and The First Lady of New York, Chirlane McCray were able to come together to celebrate and blaze the path in shaping where healthcare will go in the coming years.
Looking back on the Awards Ceremony, the Queens Tribune noted, “We are proud to turn the spotlight on the health care heroes who burn the midnight oil, illuminate and invigorate the field with new ideas and approaches, find funding for that new wing or program, and, ultimately, improve and save lives.” Since joining The Floating Hospital in 2003, Granahan has led the organization towards becoming the largest provider of healthcare to families living in homeless shelters and domestic violence safe houses. “Each day The Floating Hospital remains open is another day that changes the course of someone’s life for the better,” said Granahan. At the Event on Tuesday evening, Granahan was represented by nine TFH employees to accept the award and participate in the festivities, with Cynthia Davis, Director of Community Outreach, accepting the award on his behalf.
