Plot Synopsis

Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, NEW AMSTERDAM is a one-hour medical drama series that follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin, the institution's newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking "no" for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital -- the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof -- and return it to the glory that put it on the map.

For Max that means acknowledging and surrendering to his long simmering feelings towards Dr. Helen Sharpe.

Continuing to navigate their own personal journeys -- including Dr. Bloom's relationship with Dr. Leyla Shinwari, who is now her resident, Dr. Frome's new career and Dr. Reynolds' personal entanglements -- the doctors will strive to embrace the joy and successes in their lives. But there is a surprise, Dr. Veronica Fuentes is joining the New Amsterdam team to help turn around the overburdened and underfunded hospital.
