Palliative Care Institute

Palliative Care Institute 

In 1985, the Hospital established the Palliative Care Institute to help educate health care professionals about how to provide the best end-of-life care to patients. Since then, it has welcomed thousands of physicians, nurses, social workers and other health care professionals from dozens of countries for visits ranging from a few days to six months.

In 2005, the NIH’s National Cancer Institute designated Calvary “an international leader in palliative care” and invited us to participate in the Middle East Cancer Consortium (MECC). Comprised of the national ministries of health from Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Cyprus, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority, MECC members have visited Calvary regularly over the past decade.  

Annual visitors to the PCI include health care professionals from coast-to-coast as well as 800 students from every medical school in the greater New York area. The students, who come here for visits ranging from one day to semester-long weekly visits, include EMT (emergency medical technician) trainees from the New York Fire Department.
