at The Dawn Greene Hospice

Manhattan, NY Hospice and Palliative Care – CalvaryCareSM

Calvary’s Hospice and Palliative Care services are designed to meet and address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones.

CalvaryCareSM is available to Manhattan residents in private homes and through The Dawn Greene Hospice, an 18-bed unit located on the 15th floor of Mary Manning Walsh Home on the Upper East Side.

Our patients in Manhattan receive the same hallmark care that that patients receive at our main facility in the Bronx. The Dawn Greene Hospice provides short-term inpatient care under the oversight of the Calvary Hospice. Care in this 18-bed unit is intended for patients whose symptoms and care needs cannot be met at home.


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.

“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.”

What Calvary@Home did for my mother, and for us, was nothing short of a miracle. You surrounded her with love. You made her last days so comfortable. My mother always told me never to settle . . . to always go for the best. Now I can say, ‘Well mom, your little girl listened.’

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

In caring for your family member or friend, have you remembered to take the time to care for yourself? If the answer is no, you are not alone.

In times of crisis or stress, we prioritize the things that must get done over things that can be put off until a later date. Unfortunately, we tend to underestimate the value of self-care, putting off our own doctor’s appointments, eating unhealthy food on the go, and not giving ourselves time to rest. In order to continue to care for a loved one, we need to remain healthy. Self-care needs to be considered a priority.

Here’s the good news. Self-care doesn’t have to take a long time. You could try going for a short walk outside to get some sun and fresh air, taking a twenty minute nap, or even calling a friend just to chat for a few minutes. Even small things like these can allow your body to rest, lower your stress level and help clear your mind.

We understand how difficult it can be to find time for self-healing when you just want to be at your loved one’s bedside. The Family Care Center is available to you, to help you in this endeavor. Please take a few moments for yourself, stop by for a cup of coffee or join in on one of our many programs.

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.

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

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

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.

“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

Memorial Day is a remembrance of the dead; the soldiers, contractors, tech reps, engineers and all the people that served and sacrificed their lives for our freedom. It’s their memory that we celebrate.
