TV show description:      
This docu-series follows the doctors, nurses, patients, and their friends/family members at three New York hospitals.

What do grandmothers, addicts and celebrities have in common? All of them seek care at Columbia and Weill Cornell Medical Centers the crown jewels of the prestigious New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. For a full year ABC cameras had unprecedented access to document the mayhem and the miracles that occur daily in these world class facilities. Adding a Brooklyn dimension, Lutheran Medical Center also participated.

The TV series provides a raw and intimate look at life inside these hospitals where doctors spend far more time with each other than with their families, developing complicated and intertwined personal relationships.

Series Finale:     
Episode 16 — Doctors on the Frontline
Robert Campagna is a vibrant architect, husband and father. But he is finding himself out of breath lately so he gets an appointment with a top lung surgeon, Nasser Altorki of New York Presbyterian. Campagna fears the worst because both his brothers died from lung cancer. What ensues is a family love story and a portrait of a marriage and the bonds that emerge in times of stress. And this case forcefully proves the old adage “always go to the best” as Dr. Altorki makes the right decision every time and delivers an ending that is as thrilling as it is unexpected.

Removing a ring that is stuck on a patient’s finger shouldn’t be major surgery. But at Mount Sinai’s Roosevelt Hospital, ER resident Amy Caggiula is worried that her power drill could slip leaving the young woman in worse shape than she came in.

Meanwhile, Raisa Durrani, a first year surgical resident at New York Presbyterian, lands in hot water with an attending physician who is angry that their patient was given juice to drink although he was supposed to be on a diet of no food or liquids.

As the chief trauma surgeon at Newark’s University Hospital, David Livingston is a commanding presence who often mixes encouragement with sarcasm in the service of educating his staffers. But underneath his rough exterior, nobody is prouder of his unit, his city and the mission of delivering urgent care to those who need it most. When a young baseball player comes in with a serious injury to his arm following a drunken brawl, Livingston knows that his patient will be on the bench a lot longer than he realizes. (Courtesy ABC.)

    Great show. I really enjoy NY Med. ( I live in Houston Tx. but I grew up in NYC at 165th St. right across the Street from the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. When I was a young child, we use to go up to the roof and watch the Dr. and Nurse’s play tennis. I did volunteer work there as a teenager and my first job as a nursing assistant was also at the Medical Center. Great memories!! Wonderful Hospital) Please keep the show on TV.

    This show is so much more involving than any of the other reality shows on TV, and holds my attention better than all but a handful of the dramas on network OR cable TV. I know it must be very challenging to shoot this, but would love to see it renewed! Bravo!

    Bring it back please! And @NY, editing, it’s not real time. There is a protocol that you don’t enjoy as a viewer. You probably missed about an hour of realtime CPR on that patient.

    Not sugar-coated. As a 40 year RN I eagerly await each episode. Keep the shows coming, please!
