The Floating Hospital Inc.
A regulatory/corporate attorney by trade, Sean T. Granahan has worked in businesses and in a global law firm, where he developed both an expertise in and a passion for healthcare policy and operations. Granahan left Epstein Becker & Green in the spring of 2003 to become The Floating Hospital’s general counsel. Granahan took over as president in 2005 and grew the organization ten-fold to become the largest provider of healthcare to families living in homeless shelters and domestic-violence safe houses. It manages healthcare within a framework of relief, providing food, clothing and hygiene products as well as sustainable solutions to poverty such as health education and life-skills training. It maintains its status as a charity and does so regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. A graduate of the University of Scranton (Communications) and the Quinnipiac School of Law, Granahan credits his drive to help others to his time at both Jesuit and monastery schools while growing up in Pennsylvania. He is currently seeking Irish citizenship for himself and his father through his great-grandparents, who emigrated to the U.S. from Cool-Na-Binna (Crossmolina), County Mayo, where the family still resides.
