Testimonials

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

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

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

Alexia R.

You gave my dad during his final days what no one else could ever have given him: the quality of life he deserved. I don’t know where you found the angels that work there.

Gail Stadler

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.

Laurie Hathorn

When my sister Lois was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I knew, being a nurse myself, that Calvary offered the best in end-of-life care. Everything I heard about Calvary Hospital and their nurses was true. I’d never seen medical care like it.

Joyce Cushman

We used Calvary’s at home hospice for my father. I cannot say enough good things about them. They were the most wonderful caring, compassionate human beings I have ever encountered. They treated him with the utmost respect, dignity and gentleness. Bless you, Calvary. We shall never forget your kindness. Thank you.

Elyse B.

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

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

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