The Floating Hospital was originally founded in 1866 to provide health care to newspaper boys, immigrants and others. TFH used donated ships and free docking space to provide the healthcare services. We are proud of our history so we kept our name, even though we are now no longer on a ship but in a land- based clinic located in Long Island City, Queens The Floating Hospital Community Health Clinic History
