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.

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.

In 2004, when Calvary opened the Family Care Center at the Bronx Campus, it was the first of its kind. Adults and youngsters alike visit the FCC as a respite from the patient floors.

Testimonials

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

My wife Doris loved life more than anyone. When her lung cancer began to spread, we prayed that the end would be pain-free. Our prayers were answered by the skills and compassion of the doctors and nurses at Calvary Hospital. Until the very end, we held hands, we laughed, we cried. Nothing is more miraculous than Calvary.

Aaron Donner

Once my wife, Maureen, was at Calvary, her suffering eased. She was sitting up, talking, and even eating ice cream. For those few precious days, you gave her back her dignity — and you gave me back my wife.

My husband John was 56 when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. We had no idea of how to handle the process of dying. Until we went to Calvary Hospital. Medically, emotionally, and spiritually, you taught us how to handle John’s death. We weren’t afraid anymore.

They are the gold standard in the very special care they provide.

We were truly blessed the day Calvary Staff became involved in my mom’s care at the nursing home where she was a resident. The most supportive health care team I have ever met.

We knew that dad, who was dying of brain cancer, would probably not make it to our wedding. Luckily, Calvary offered us their chapel for the ceremony. There was dad, sitting front and center at the wedding with his bright rosy cheeks… Dad passed away just a few weeks later, but not before you gave him back his love for life… and a front row seat at his daughter’s wedding.

Bridget Cevasco

Special thanks to the angels who provided the light for our brother Howard’s path. A truly exceptional staff.

Alexia R.

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

After caring for his patients his entire life, all the kindness was returned to my husband at the very end… at Calvary.
My husband, Dr. Vincent Pacella, worked his entire career in Brooklyn – caring for his patients with exceptional compassion and warmth. This was the place he loved the most. So it was only fitting that he spend the final days of his life with your remarkable staff at Calvary Hospital in Brooklyn. We knew that this was the only place that could repay him with all the love he deserved. The moment he arrived, you relieved his anguish and pain. There was an instant calmness and warmth that we all felt. And you took care of every detail – keeping him free of pain and comfortable. You even provided a special bed for my six-foot-six Vinny. Being devout Catholics, your priests embraced our faith and never let go of our hands throughout his final journey, surrounding us with peace and comfort. We had heard about Calvary from our doctor friends, but never imagined how special your staff of angels really are.
