TV show description:
Set in 2006, this medical drama follows the frantic lives of resident doctors and nurses at a military hospital in Southern Afghanistan. The personnel come from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and other coalition countries. In addition to working through some cultural differences, the professionals strive to provide the best care they can in the middle of a war zone.

They operate out of a Role 3 hospital that’s improvised with what’s available. The facility’s a jumble of tents, temporary buildings made of plywood and duct tape, and repurposed shipping containers that line the unit to help provide protective outer walls. The international team of doctors, nurses and medics deliver the best battlefield surgical care possible to wounded soldiers, civilians caught in the crossfire, and even to the enemy.

Helming the hospital is Colonel Xavier Marks (Elias Koteas) of the Canadian Forces, a career military surgeon and Head of the Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit. New Role 3 recruits include Major Rebecca Gordon (Michelle Borth), a top-of-her-class trauma surgeon who’s eager to impress, and Trauma Team Leader Captain Bobby Trang (Terry Chen), a general practice doctor and a gentle soul who’s a bit less confident in his abilities than Rebecca.

The only non-military medical staffer is brilliant British neurosurgeon Dr. Simon Hill (Luke Mably). The others can’t figure out why he volunteered to work in a war zone. Australian psychiatrist Major Grace Pederson (Deborah Kara Unger) oversees the mental well-being of the troops. The Chief of Nursing is Commander Will Royal (Arnold Pinnock), a registered nurse serving with the Canadian Forces who keeps everything running as smoothly as possible and won’t let his co-workers forget it.

    usually I am not all goo goo gaga over a show and saying put it back on but after being honorably discharged from the US Army I really enjoy watching this show as far as authenticity goes it is one of the closest I have ever seen to actual military style shows without it all being about the conflict but just enough to keep ones interest but my cries are on deaf ears this show was produced by the very same network that puts to much soap style drama on one show like private practice and kills all the awesome characters on another show like greys anatomy which is structurally speaking bad writing cause the odds of that happening are actually impossible not improbable if your wondering what characters I will name them mark sloan and lexie grey cause she was stealing the fan base from main character and sister Meredith grey and last but not least George O Malley which was killed right when he joined the Army wow that would have been a spin off not one based on the bad guy character of the cheating ex wife sorry show storyline really got me angry but we need combat hospital back its a great show I know it will pick up an audience

    The people at ABC always cancel all the good shows like this one and “Off the map” and so many more that i get hooked on then they drop them. So i say boycot ABC and not get hooked on any more of their new shows just so they can cancel them on us!!!!!!!!

    PLEASE bring back the show!!! (new episodes not re-runs) ER was cancelled, Nurse Jackie is not worth my time, Greys Anatomy; fills in for whats been missing, Private Practice too dramatized so and so is seeing so and so and that so and so is seeing someone else so this so and so will seek out so and so… see what I mean its more of a soap ophera then a good medical show….. Combat hospital was GREAT, I know of SEVERAL people wanting this show back…. I know my vote is nothing but what if you opened a voting poll and see how many votes come in for having Combat hospital on and then make your judgement!

    Please do not cancel this show,its a very wonderful to watch. Considering what is out there like appentise,survivor,batchalor all those supid reality TV shows. Ive already stopped watching N.B.C. because they have cancelled way to many serious so I have blocked N.B.C. All together on my T.V. maybe ABC WILL BE NEXT.
