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

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.

There was only one place that could match my sister’s love for life during her final days: Calvary Hospital.
My sister Eileen possessed an incredible love and enthusiasm for life. With her keen sense of style, she loved fashion, shopping, traveling to Europe, and finding new and exciting restaurants. So when we realized that there was no cure for her terminal cancer, there was no better place that she spend her final days than where her quality of life would never be compromised: Calvary Hospital. The staff at Calvary – in fact, every employee who we were in contact with – relieved the pain, as well as the incredible stress that we were experiencing. Eileen was treated with the integrity, dignity, and grace that she deserved…even to her very last day. Her hair was kept properly coiffed, her nails done just right, and her nurse even applied her signature make up. Eileen said the pampering made her feel loved. The staff was extraordinary in their care, as if God had hand-picked them to work there. Eileen always believed that you should never give up on life as long as you have a breath in you. Well, Calvary Hospital celebrated her life until the very end in a way that only Calvary can. Thank you, Calvary. And God bless you.

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

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 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

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 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.

Patricia L.

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

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

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
