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.

Locations & Maps
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.
CalvaryCare® 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 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.
