Among the precursors of the Savoy Orders was the Military Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem, which originated during the Crusades. The Order of St. Lazarus was an order of hospitallers that took care of lepers. In keeping with those origins, the Savoy Orders focus particularly on charitable activities in the field of health care.

New York Foundling Hospital's The Maria Lucadamo Crisis Nursery to help provide top quality care for children, along with support services to help parents in crisis get back on their feet and remain stable. Offering respite and a safe place to bring a child for up to 21 days, while parents respond to short-term crises that could otherwise turn into disaster, the Crisis Nursery is the only city-licensed emergency respite care facility of its kind. Staffed by a team of social workers, doctors, nurses and teachers, the Crisis Nursery creates a loving environment for vulnerable children, with educational activities, playtime and medical care when needed – even toys and clothes are provided. The care and support of the nursery does not end there. The staff helps the families plan for their child’s return home, addressing through aftercare services the causes of the family’s stress to ensure that their first visit to the Crisis Nursery is their only one.
