At Calvary Hospital, we embrace care for people dying of cancer as one of the highest expressions of the healing arts and sciences. We are guided by a philosophy of non-abandonment of care, in which staff members, working collaboratively, provide patients with a full complement of medical, social, psychological, and spiritual services in a restraint-free environment, restoring dignity so often stripped from them at the final stages of life. Our philosophy of non-abandonment emphasizes constant loving touch, full communication, consistent and responsive service, and sensitivity to the needs of family members.
Along with excellent medical and nursing care, Calvary also provides continuous celebratory experiences, both social and spiritual, for patients and their loved ones. This celebration is a reaffirmation of life despite terminal illness, and a reaffirmation of Calvary’s mission.
Calvary had much to celebrate in 2012:
After more than a century of caring for patients and their families in a manner that offers peace, calm, and preservation of choice, and freedom from pain. Calvary Hospital and its dedicated staff are committed to ensuring that its mission continues.
