Did anyone ever go on the Floating Hospital while living in The Bronx? My friend's family took me there one day in the summer. One of the children was diagnosed with infantile paralysis. He would get therapy on the boat during the summer months. The whole Family would go. While her brother was being treated there was a playroom for the kids. Sometimes they would be asked questions by doctors, maybe to see how the Family was coping with the illness. I'm not sure if this service was fee or if they had health insurance.
Is anyone familiar with the Floating Hospital?
