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 -- the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers Island and the president of the United States all under one roof -- and return it to the glory that put it on the map. Inspired by Bellevue in New York City. Written by NBC

The main characters wear doctors coats with their name embroidered on the coat. Since doctors coats are frequently cleaned at high temperature and are centrally issued, they would not have the name of an individual doctor. See more »

User Reviews

Great start, but becoming cartoonish
5 May 2021 | by chicagorob1See all my reviews

The show is great, when it sticks to human level stories. But in season 3 Dr. Goodwin has become a cartoon character trying to solve a massive, new problem every week.

While other doctors are helping and healing, he manically runs around trying to end things that have plague the world for centuries. He thinks his pathetic shallow and ignorant attempts to "fix" something always works, but it's inevitably followed up by a lesson from the victim he's trying to help.

I literally fast forward when he's on the screen, simply because his stories never interacts with anything else on the show.
