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.

  • Hospice and Palliative Care trained nursing and Social Work staff
  • Pastoral care department with 30 chaplains representing a range of faith backgrounds

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.

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.


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.

Throughout their entire lives, our parents sacrificed everything for us.
Our greatest gift to them during their final days was Calvary. True to the culture of proud Italian-Americans, our parents worked hard all of their lives so that their five sons could have the education and opportunities that they didn’t. So it was only natural that when dad had terminal cancer, then years later mom, uterine cancer, we took them to only place on earth that could relieve their pain and suffering with the most expert end-of-life care – Calvary Hospital – in the place they loved the most – Brooklyn. Both times, their physical and emotional pain was totally relieved with constant comfort, compassion and non-abandonment. But Calvary’s unique care didn’t stop with mom and dad. They also gave my brothers and me a whole new life that was stress-free. They took away our roles as caregivers and gave us back our simple roles as sons. We were all able to live our lives as a family again. Calvary took care of the rest. At the end of the day, Calvary and my parents had a lot in common: they made the good times great, and the tough times easier. Thank you Calvary.

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

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

Dorothy Pacella

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

Near the end of my brother’s life, I convinced him to leave Puerto Rico and come to America where they could handle his pain and suffering. During my brother’s final days we saw only happiness and love. God answered our prayers by sending us to Calvary.

Maria DeJesus

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.

Jospeh W. Cooney

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.

Ben Fargione

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

My Mother received Calvary at Home Hospice Care, and she was given excellent care by the nurses and home health aides… The nurses that come  to check on my mother were very professional, friendly and compassionate, and did everything to make her comfortable… With the help of Calvary we were able to honor my Mother’s wishes to be at home, and to die with dignity surrounded by her family.
