The Dr. Brescia Philosophy
Since 1899, Calvary Hospital has been dedicated to the palliative care of adult patients with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Calvary has provided excellent end-of-life care to more patients to date than any other single entity in this country. It is the only hospital in the U.S. today that focuses on this type of care.
For more than 55 years, Dr. Michael J. Brescia has guided our patient care philosophy. His leadership and vision are evident in every employee.
They are all aware of the importance of touch to the CalvaryCareSM experience for patients and families alike.
Dr. Michael inspires our caregivers to go beyond the normal care model to provide patients and families with the support necessary to see them through this final sacred journey.
Helping Hands in the face of crisis and Holding Hands to soothe and comfort – that is the Dr. Brescia philosophy.
