Today at Calvary, on International Women’s Day 2022, we celebrate the Women of Calvary who inspired the founding of our hospital, and the generations of diverse women visionaries, advocates, experts, religious, and health professionals who established Calvary as a world-leader in the provision of family-centric hospice, palliative care and end-of-life education.

Calvary would not be a beacon of hope for those confronting their final journey if not for these extraordinary women.


Calvary Mission

The mission of Calvary Hospital is to care for the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of our adult patients with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.  It is the only fully accredited acute care hospital in the U.S. devoted exclusively to the palliative care of adult patients.  Calvary’s core principles are compassion, non-abandonment, dignity and love.

Calvary’s mission today is the same as when we started nearly 120 years ago.  Our family-centric approach to patient care is key to relieving the stress and concerns of family members as well.
