BRONX, NEW YORK, December 2012 – On Thursday, December 6, Calvary Hospital hosted a networking breakfast at the White Plains office of BNY Mellon Wealth Management for more than 70 leading estate planning attorneys, accountants, bankers, insurance brokers and wealth managers. The purpose of the event was to educate this professional community about the Hospital’s extensive services available to patients and families residing in Westchester. The services include inpatient care in the Bronx and Brooklyn, home hospice, nursing home hospice, home care, bereavement support groups, and outpatient wound care services in the Bronx. This event, the first one Calvary has ever hosted in Westchester for the professional community, was underwritten by BNY Mellon Wealth Management.

         After a welcome from BNY Mellon representatives, Jean Marie Connolly, Senior Director, and Edward J. Mooney, Managing Director and Senior Director of Wealth Management, the Honorable Anthony A.

PAC members are volunteers from the legal, investment, accounting, insurance, and banking professions.
