Mission Statement

The IHP is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise necessary funds in order to provide the residents of and visitors to Fishers Island with a year-round, full time doctor.  Money generated from office visits is not enough to offset the high cost of providing this coverage.  An annual appeal and two fundraising events aid in our efforts.

The Island Health Project, Inc (IHP) was created in 1974 as a spin off from the Fishers Island Civic Assocaition, which was the former governing body of many island organizations.
