The Floating Hospital

The Floating Hospital Health Care for the Homeless Program provides comprehensive health care services within numerous medically underserved areas. The HCH clinics are located in five homeless shelters in Brooklyn and the Bronx, and in NYC’s family intake center in the Bronx. In addition, other homeless families are transported from approximately 50 shelters and domestic violence safe houses throughout NYC and served at the Main Clinic in LIC, Queens.

The Floating Hospital provides high-quality healthcare to anyone who needs it regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, immigration or insurance status, or the ability to pay. By providing unrestricted medical care in tandem with health education and social support to vulnerable New York City families, The Floating Hospital aims to ensure those most in need have the ability to thrive, not just survive.


The comprehensive health care services include primary care provided by pediatricians, internists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. The program also provides mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, health education, benefits counseling, dental services, and outreach services.


There are established linkages with hospitals contiguous to each clinic or intake center for medical, substance abuse, and mental health services.


Estimated homeless population: 333,500

Patients served: 36,988
