From executive producer Peter Horton (Grey’s Anatomy) comes New Amsterdam, a medical drama inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America. Can the charming incoming medical director upset the status quo enough to make the understaffed, underfunded, and underappreciated doctors at New Amsterdam care again?
Dr. Goodwin wants his staff to put patients above billing. If that means firing the entire cardiac surgical department or taking in an Ebola patient, he is willing to challenge the bureaucracy and red tape. He encourages his doctors to look at patients as human beings, instead of as billable assets, but on his crusade to make the system work better, he finds out he has cancer. Which leaves us wondering: Is Dr. Goodwin doing all this despite himself, or because he has nothing to lose.
Don’t miss this new exceptional medical drama, New Amsterdam debuting September 25th on NBC at 10/9c.
