Calvary Hospital Donates $15,000 to Ukrainian victims

Posted

Calvary Hospital donated $15,000 worth of medical supplies to health care professionals and first responders providing critical care to the victims of the war in Ukraine.

Calvary Hospital worked under the guidance of the Greater New York Hospital Association and with the US-Ukraine Foundation, the Afya Foundation and supplier Medline to deliver clotting bandages, medical tape, slings, dressings, and antiseptics to Afya’s warehouse in Yonkers where it will be packed for shipment.

“We have about 30 staff of Ukrainian and Russian heritage at Calvary. While they help carry out our mission of providing palliative and end-of-life care for individuals and their families here, they’re very concerned for the health and well-being of their families and friends back home and in neighboring countries,” said Calvary CEO Frank Calamari, who brought boxes of first-aid staples to the depot with Dr. Irina Makarevich, director of medical services at Calvary’s 25-bed Brooklyn campus.

Calvary employees are assisting the Ukrainian people by contributing to charities including the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Relief Services.
