The lives and trials of the staff of a major hospital in Chicago.
There are a lot of references throughout the series to St. Elsewhere (1982), another popular hospital-themed drama. Kate Austin wins the "Left Anterior Descending Aorta" award for being a top notch cardiac surgeon. Stephen Furst appeared playing a vet named Elliot. On St. Elsewhere, he played Elliot Axelrod, whose father was a vet (he did not appear as his St. Elsewhere character though as Elliot Axelrod, he was killed off on St. Elsewhere). Kate quotes her mentor to be "Dr. David Demidian". Mark Craig (William Daniels), on St. Elsewhere, said that Demidian was his mentor as well.
Dr. Billy Kronk:
Look! It's bullet proof!
Dr. Diane Grad: Stay with me and I'll buy you one for your birthday.
In the 100th episode, names of executive producers Bill D'Elia and John Tinker were spelled "Bill Delia" and "John T'Inker".
