CROSSROADS – Summer 2020
These have been difficult days for all of us, and we are truly grateful for your continued support. Your commitment to Calvary plays a pivotal role in our ability to manage this unexpected health crisis and stay true to our mission of non-abandonment.
Lifting up the burden of fear and anxiety is what Calvary does. We continue to do just that every day with the comfort of faith that guides and sustains us. We are unwavering in the face of this worldwide health emergency, which is highlighted in our article
“We Never Let Fear Divert Us From Our Purpose” (page 3), and we are mindful of the efforts of our dedicated staff as indicated in the article “Spotlight on Nurses”(page 6). We are grateful for the many donations of food, PPE, electronic equipment and other items submitted to Calvary Hospital in response to COVID-19 over the last several months (page 15).
Above all else, I want to assure you that we are meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients and their loved ones. That was Calvary’s mission before this crisis began and will continue to be as we embrace the ever changing environment.
Here’s how Calvary is continuing to respond to our community in need:
Calvary has faced other pandemics and prevailed. With over 120 years of service, we possess the institutional experience and fortitude to stay committed to our merciful mission of non-abandonment, no matter what the circumstances. The world may have changed, but the quality of CalvaryCare® never will.
As we face these daily changes, know that our heroic staff is providing care to our patients and the families who love them – those who have trusted us with those most precious to them.
We will persevere, stay true to our mission and remain – the place where life continues.
