The lives and work of the staff of St. Eligius Hospital, an old and disrespected Boston teaching hospital.
The facade for the hospital St Eligius is the Franklin House on East Newton Street in Boston. That building provides affordable for residents in the South End of Boston. From the early 1900s to the 1970s the building was the Franklin Square Hotel for Women. It provided apartments for young working women in Boston. For a few months after she graduated from Boston University in the early 1960s Faye Dunaway was a resident there.
Dr. Mark Craig:
Throughout the series, Dr. Daniel Auschlander suffers from late-stage Liver Cancer and yet he is seen repeatedly as drinking "very good" Scotch after hours with his staff in his office. Alcohol consumption only aggravates Liver Cancer and hastens death.
In the final season, St. Eligius has been bought by Ecumena. In several episodes of the final season, the following message appears during the end credits: "ECUMENA is a fictional company that does not represent any actual company or corporation."
The versions shown on Bravo cable network in the United States have many of the songs used throughout the series replaced with generic stock music, probably due to licensing issues.
