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.

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.

Testimonials

My Aunt Mary loved her Catholic religion, her Irish legacy, and a place called Calvary.
My Aunt Mary lived life with extraordinary pride, passion and purpose. Nothing made her prouder than her loving family, her Catholic faith and her Irish heritage. She passed down to all of us a determination to always work hard and help those in need. When a terminal illness began to rob her of her life, we knew that she deserved a special place to give her the dignity and care that she so greatly deserved. Being the Chief of Counterterrorism in the NYPD, I knew the City well. So the choice for Aunt Mary was simple: Calvary Hospital’s Dawn Greene Hospice at Mary Manning Walsh Home on the Upper East Side. The special staff of nurses and doctors relieved her of the physical pain, and she was spiritually comforted daily by the Catholic nuns and priests. She was surrounded by angels who gave all of us a peace and serenity that we will never forget. Thank you Calvary Hospital.

I could not have asked for, nor could I have given, better care to my mom.

Carolyn Migliore, RN

My husband Jimmy suffered terribly with the pain of advanced cancer. The HMOs denied us financial coverage for Calvary. They left us with Jimmy to die an agonizing death. But Calvary wouldn’t abandon us. You said, ‘If we can’t care for Jimmy, let us close our doors rather than close our hearts.

Joyce Parks

The day our father was admitted to Calvary, we prayed that he wouldn’t suffer during his final days and that you would relieve his excruciating pain. We thought we were wishing for miracles. Not only did you relieve his suffering, our entire family benefited from the remarkable care your staff provided

Laurie Goldman & Donna Garber

My daughter Priscilla was only 36 years old with terminal brain cancer. We thought it would be impossible to find a place with the same warmth and comfort of our home. Then we found Calvary Hospital. I believe that God gave us Calvary Hospital.

Felicisima Hernandez

During his last days, only Calvary Hospital was able to relieve our son Greg’s cancer pain with peace and dignity.
No parent should ever have to bury their child. But on October 14, 2014, our son Greg, only 35, lost his battle with cancer. Courageous throughout his entire life, with a love for adventure and travel, it was heartbreaking to see him suffer. But thanks to you and your expert staff, you relieved Greg’s physical pain, and the emotional pain of our entire family, as well. For Greg’s final week, our family alternated our overnight stays, so we would always be with him. In fact, his hospital room became a sacred place for us, filled with peace and serenity. Your combination of professional expertise and compassion was remarkable. We have never seen such genuine care and concern. Believe us, we know. I’m a physical therapist, and my wife is a registered nurse. Greg lived out his final days with dignity and peace, in a place like no other. –Thank you Calvary Hospital.

Michael & Rosemary Salamone

Your care for my Susan during her final days was life-saving.
I am grateful beyond words for the care that Calvary Hospital provided my beloved wife Susan at the end of her life. Your medical attention and palliative expertise were superior. Your attentive sensitivity to our needs as a Jewish family was remarkable. And your heartfelt love which we felt from every staff member was genuine. Calvary provided Susan with more than just a place for her to die, but also a sheltered, peaceful community to leave this life as she lived it – with her dignity undiminished. As soon as Calvary started caring for Susan, you lifted that heavy burden from us and allowed us to simply be a family once again. Because of you, my soulmate died in peace, which assures me that she will rest in peace. God bless you, Calvary Hospital.

Rabbi Jeffrey J. Sirkman

Calvary Hospital helped our dying mother receive a r’fuah sh’lemah.
The informal translation of this expression is, ‘Get Well Soon.’ But, how does one cure an incurable disease? Physically, you cannot. Emotionally and spiritually, however, Calvary’s Home Hospice proves that you can. It is a perfect healing that your magnificent program provided to Mother in her final year. Peter, a trusted family friend and EMT, who suggested that we consider inviting Calvary Hospital to come into her home and provide another kind of cure, was right. The expert staff of Calvary@Home alleviated her physical pain, as well as the mental anguish through which our family, particularly my nonagenarian father, was suffering. In fact, your staff cared as much for him as it did for my mother. Your nurse, social worker, and rabbi made sure that my mother and all of us, her family, were granted peace and serenity, free from pain, stress, and anxiety. It was a perfect healing that combined compassion and care. We witnessed firsthand how Calvary truly is Where Life Continues.

After caring for his patients his entire life, all the kindness was returned to my husband at the very end… at Calvary.

Dorothy Pacella

The amazing people at Calvary helped my wife, Maureen, the love of my life, spend her final days in peace… Because of Calvary, I never doubt that I did the right thing for my sweetheart.
