Located in the Los Angeles, California area, Medical Center was an otherwise unnamed hospital complex that was part of a large university campus. Dr. Paul Lochner (James Daly) was the chief of staff, an experienced, professional, compassionate man. Dr. Joe Gannon (Chad Everett) was a young associate professor of surgery and a close friend of Dr. Lochner.
When it went off the air after one hundred seventy-one first-run episodes, this show had aired the most episodes of any medical programs, comedy or drama. Since then, only House (2004) (one hundred seventy-seven), Diagnosis Murder (1993) (one hundred seventy-eight episodes, plus five movies, plus pilot), Scrubs (2001) (one hundred eighty-two), Bones (2005) (two hundred forty-six), Frasier (1993) (two hundred seventy-five). ER (1994) (three hundred thirty-one), and Grey's Anatomy (2005) (three hundred forty-plus) had more episodes about health care practitioners. See more »
Medical Center was a very popular drama doctor TV. series in the seventies, Chad Everett and James Daly did an super starring role as doctor Joe Gannon and chief of staff doctor Paul Lochner. It also starred most well known actors from those days in guest roles,for instance, Jodie foster, David Cassidy, Michael Douglas, Cid Charisse, Richard Thomas and many more,
every episode had it's own touching medical story, the script writers did do an excellent job, by writing such touching exiting medical story's,about people and their medical problems, and how the doctors helped them to cure,
but it was Chad Everett in his brilliant touching role as clever, kind ,great looking doctor Joe Gannon, who brought the show to the top! There has never been any medical Dr. show on TV who was so perfect done like this one was! Hope the entire series will be released on DVD or home video soon! A lot of medical center fans, would love this to happen! We would all love to see a remake movie of medical center with Chad Everett nowadays! this would be great!
