At The Floating Hospital, health equity is in our DNA

The Floating Hospital has known since its beginnings how a public health crisis lifts the veil off inequities suffered by the poorest Americans and, overwhelmingly, in Brown and Black communities. 


Pickleball levels the playing field

There’s a new game in town that will have kids at this summer’s Camp Rise Up dinking around the campus in Rhinebeck, N.Y. 

Dinking, you say? Read on to learn how our campers are on trend with this fast-growing sport. 


News and events

The Floating Hospital becomes a Covid Vaccine Ambassador site; we help our friends at Loukoumi Make a Difference Foundation hit a home run; we take it to the river with Mayor Adams; and we were honored to welcome Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez to our clinic.

Musical Melodies

Music has long been said to soothe the savage breast. And some will argue, affect good health. That’s why back in the early days of The Floating Hospital’s daily sea voyages, music was as integral to a doctor’s script as checkups, healthy food and fresh air. An 1877 ad for the clinic declared that music “…enlivens the convalescent and insures the results to all.” Many patients today recall participating in jamborees on the ship as a child, for many, the only musical interlude available to them, and one with long-lasting benefits.
