From its inception in 1899, Calvary Hospital has been
devoted to providing palliative care to adult patients in
the advanced stages of cancer, addressing the symptoms of
the disease, not its cure. Operated in connection with the
Archdiocese of New York, Calvary is a voluntary,
not-for-profit hospital, embodying a tradition of caring
through its many programs and services. The cornerstone of
Calvary’s program of service is its philosophy of
compassionate care to meet the emerging physical,
psychosocial, and spiritual needs of both patients and
families through the provision of acute inpatient,
outpatient, home and hospice services (through
Calvary@Home), wound care services and satellite services.
Through the Palliative Care Institute the Hospital transmits
to other health care professionals, through research and
education, the knowledge and competence which it has
developed in the care of the advanced cancer patient. The
National Cancer Institute designated Calvary as the
International Standard of Excellence for Palliative Care.
