The Floating Hospital doesn’t float anymore, and it’s not a traditional hospital, so its name only hints at the kind of services it provides. The 150-year-old organization has evolved from a ship docked in lower Manhattan to operating two land-based facilities in Queens. Floating Hospital sends vans throughout the city to transport homeless families from shelters and individuals in domestic violence safe houses to their clinics for care. Sean Granahan, its president and general counsel, spoke about the state of health care delivery and how he brought the organization back from a financial loss.
