TV show description:
This medical drama revolves around the lives and careers of two very talented surgeons and their patients at a university hospital in Los Angeles.
Doctor Paul Lochner (James Daly) is the experienced, professional, and compassionate Chief of Staff. His close friend is Doctor Joe Gannon (Chad Everett), a young and handsome professor of surgery. Gannon also works as the head of the Student Health Department at the university since he can identify with the students.
Though Lochner and Gannon respect each other’s abilities, they sometimes have different ways of approaching their patient work, setting up some youth vs. experience tension. They’re helped by a very efficient Head Nurse Eve Wilcox (Audrey Totter) and other recurring staff members like Nurse Chanbers (Jayne Meadows), Doctor Jeanne Bartlett (Corinne Camacho), Nurse Courtland (Chris Hutson), Doctor Barnes (Fred Holliday), Nurse Murphy (Jane Dulo), Nurse Holmby (Barbara Baldavin), Nurse Canford (Virginia Hawkins), Doctor Weller (Eugene Peterson), Doctor Bricker (Ed Hall), and Nurse Bascomb (Louise Fitch).
