APRIL 2022

Come Together, Right Now!

The Floating Hospital’s annual summer benefit is back—and better than ever.

After more than two years of quarantining and social distancing, it’s time to celebrate the love and care The Floating Hospital brings to New York’s most vulnerable families.


Mental health

The Floating Hospital devotes resources to a patient population still reeling from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.


News and events

Gov. Kathy Hochul, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney and First Deputy Mayor Lorraine Grillo help launch the Astoria Houses Covid care clinic; Camp Rise Up has its star turn on WPIX-11 news; and Floating Hospital staffers will have a chance to “pickle” their fancies.  


Did you know that at one time frequent bathing was considered unhealthy? While that notion began to change as plumbing and access to clean running water improved in cities across America, the poorest among us didn’t have this same access to ease in cleanliness. To remedy this important aspect of hygiene, The Floating Hospital offered “deep sea baths” on board its water-bound healthcare vessels, pumping water from deep in the Lower Bay on board to fill a giant bathtub fit for communal bathing—rubber ducky not included!   


Help make healthcare for all New Yorkers a reality
