Located in the Los Angeles area, Medical Center was an otherwise unnamed hospital complex that was part of a large university campus. Dr. Paul Lochner was the chief of staff, an experienced, professional, compassionate man. Dr. Joe Gannon was a young associate professor of surgery and a close friend of Dr. Lochner. Written by
I loved "Medical Center" as much as anyone else here. BUT... unless I missed an episode, it seems to me that everyone, every patient... survived and ended up walking out on their own two feet, more or less. I don't recall "Dr. Gannon" ever losing a patient. Unlike, say, on "ER", where they actually lose quite a few.
Also, "Dr. Gannon" is listed as "Professor of Surgery" at the fictional university medical center. And he did EVERYTHING. In one episode, he'd be doing General Surgery. In another, Neurosurgery. In another, Orthopedic... he was a Cardiovascular Surgeon, he was a Thoracic Surgeon! He even did Psychiatry (there was one episode involving a girl with what turned out to be "Hysterical Blindness"). This guy did EVERYTHING!!!!
