Without the generous support of caring individuals to supplement these reimburse costs, TFH would not be able to provide a health care safety-net for NYC's most fragile families.

Mission Statement

The Floating Hospital provides exceptional and compassionate healthcare to diverse and underserved communities. We believe that everyone, regardless of circumstance and economic status, deserves the opportunity to live a healthy and productive life.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the The Floating Hospital website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022

Persons In Family HouseholdPoverty Guideline Salary per year

For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.

Admin on Apr 20, 2021

The clinic never answers their phone. I'm trying to make an appointment to see my primary physician. This is a problem because I just got diagnosed with a life threatening disease and I need my primary to follow up with. This is terrible. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go here. They don't care about your health or wellbeing.
