Locations & Maps
For nearly 120 years, Calvary Hospital has devoted itself to one mission — addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients and their loved ones. We care for adult patients with advanced cancer as well as other life-limiting illnesses.
CalvaryCare® includes outstanding end-of-life in the inpatient setting, in the home setting, and supportive services for the entire family, including more than two dozen free bereavement support groups that meet weekly in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan.
CalvaryCare® is available on an inpatient basis at four facilities: 200-bed hospital in the Bronx, 25-bed Brooklyn Campus, The Dawn Greene Hospice (a 10-bed unit at Mary Manning Walsh Home in Manhattan), and Ozanam Hall of Queens Nursing Home.
Calvary Hospice offers home care and hospice in a variety of settings including private homes, nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities. Short-term inpatient care at The Dawn Greene Hospice and Ozanam Hall is provided under the oversight of the Calvary Hospice. Wherever Calvary delivers its care, the quality is the same as in its flagship Bronx location.
Founded in 1899, Calvary Hospital is the nation’s only fully accredited acute care specialty hospital singularly devoted to providing palliative care to adult patients with advanced and life-limiting illnesses, without regard to race, religion, or economic status.
Calvary’s continuum of care includes inpatient care, care of complex wounds, home care, hospice, nursing home hospice, bereavement care, and extensive support programs for patients, families, and friends. Each year, Calvary cares for thousands of patients and their families.
CalvaryCare® is founded in the guiding principles of compassion, respect for the dignity of every patient, and non-abandonment of our patients and families. Our primary goal is to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient and their families.

Patient Care Program
The following program of care is available to Calvary patients and family members at the Bronx Campus:
Most hospitals employ just a handful of chaplains for their patients. Spiritual care is so valued at this Hospital, we employ 24 full-time chaplains. They are available seven days a week to care for the spiritual needs of patients and families.
Chaplains lead worship services regularly at our multi-faith chapel in the Bronx, visit the Brooklyn Campus regularly and provide individual counseling. They also perform sacraments and other religious rituals.
A Spanish-speaking ministry is available upon request. Spiritual care providers are also dedicated to caring for the spiritual needs of Calvary@Home patients, wherever they are receiving our care.
EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 4, 2021, Calvary’s guidelines for normal visitation is as follows:
Visitation Policy for Critical Patients at the Bronx campus:
** The Department of Health is mandating that we collect specific information about our visitors. Please have your Driver’s License or other identification available and have it ready for scanning. If you do not have identification, please speak to us at the registration desk.
Exceptions to Our Visiting Policy
If you have a situation in which you want to request an exception to our current policy for regular and critical patients, please note that they may be granted on an “as needed” basis. If you want to make a request, please contact Social Work/Family Care at 718-518-2000, ext. 2365.
The New York State Department of Health also offered this guidance: Visitors should understand that they might acquire COVID-19 by entering a hospital and should make an informed decision whether the benefits of a visit outweigh the risks. “Individuals age 70 years or older, or those with chronic medical conditions, are not encouraged to visit at this time due to increased risk of COVID-19 infection.”
Family Care Center
In 2004, when Calvary opened the Family Care Center at the Bronx Campus, it was the first of its kind. Adult and younger visitors often visit the FCC as a respite from the patient floors. They may check email, read newspapers, get a manicure or massage, grab a cup of coffee, or simply gather their thoughts.
