Tour of the Dawn Greene Hospice

History

The Dawn Greene Hospice was made possible by a gift of $4 million from the Jerome L. Greene Foundation to ArchCare for the benefit of Calvary Hospital. Mrs. Greene, the Foundation’s leader until her death in 2010, was a generous benefactor to Calvary Hospital. Her advocacy of Calvary’s mission helped strengthen care across our continuum, including inpatient, home hospice, and home health care.

Testimonials

Absolutely wonderful place and people. I am in awe of the spirit and faith that maintains this staff.

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

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

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

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 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

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

Dorothy Pacella

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

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