Dr. Max Goodwin is brilliant, charming — and the new medical director at America’s oldest public hospital. While he’s set on tearing down the bureaucracy to provide exceptional care, the doctors and staff are not so sure. They’ve heard this before, and no one else has delivered on those promises. Not taking no for an answer, Max disrupts the status quo and proves he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital and return it to the glory that put it on the map with the help of his dedicated colleagues Dr. Helen Sharpe, Dr. Iggy Frome, Dr. Lauren Bloom and Dr. Floyd Reynolds. Inspired by Bellevue in New York City.
