Testimonials

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

Alexia R.

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

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.

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.

Leon M. Metzger

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 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

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.

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.

Dorothy Pacella

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.
