Calvary Hospital rallies its doctors and nurses around advanced cancer patients, hoping to keep them as comfortable as possible. The facility specializes in palliative care, the practice of relieving the pain and symptoms associated with an illness (not curing the illness itself). Calvary Hospital offers both inpatient and outpatient services to adult patients in the advanced stages of cancer through two campuses; the main hospital has about 200 beds and a satellite location in Brooklyn has about 25 beds. In addition, the hospital operates home health and hospice agencies and provides case management and family support services. The not-for-profit organization is sponsored by the Archdiocese of New York.
