CalvaryCareSM in Manhattan, NY

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

“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

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

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.’

Arlene Grauer

“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

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

Dorothy Pacella

Memorial Day is a time for all of us to reflect on those who gave their lives for freedom.
