St. Elsewhere is an offbeat, critically acclaimed hospital
drama of unprecedented quality. Produced by the company
responsible for "Hill St. Blues," it was considered a medical
version of that program, showcasing unflinching realism and
excellent writing and acting, as well as a unique blend of
black humor, drama and tragedy. Despite amassing eight
Emmy Awards and a fiercely loyal following during its
five-year run, it received poor ratings.

Set in a rundown Boston neighborhood, "St. Elsewhere"
(the derisive name given to St. Eligius teaching hospital)
serves patients not wanted by the more prestigious
institutions. The sensitive Dr. Donald Westphall leads the
administration, struggling with the daily triumphs
and failures of hospital life.

He is busy with the dedicated and caring staff who have
their own difficulties, such as egotistical heart surgeon
Dr. Mark Craig, inexperienced graduate Dr. Victor Ehrlich,
and the young resident Dr. Phillip Chandler, who is afraid
of not measuring up to the high standards of medicine.

It is a place where little joys like the birth of a baby are
offset by muggings in the emergency room, ministering
aid to the indigent and homeless, a nurse stealing
medication from patients, and so on. And unlike
most previous medical shows, patients on
"St. Elsewhere" do not always pull through.
