Description

Calvary Hospital is the only fully accredited acute care specialty hospital exclusively providing palliative care for adult advanced cancer patients in the United States. Calvary Hospital is based in the Bronx, New York with a campus in Brooklyn. We provide palliative care-- the active treatment of the symptoms, not the cure of the disease, to make our patients as comfortable as possible.Our programs include inpatient care, pain management, outpatient care, hospice, home care with bereavement and support programs for families and friends.Calvary Hospital is committed to kindness, non-abandonment, and the importance of "caring" people who care for our patients.
