Review of "New Amsterdam" 9/29/18 by Eva Diaz
airs Tuesdays 10/9c on NBC

This show is about the fictional New Amsterdam hospital, the nation's oldest public hospital. A new director arrives to try and make it the best hospital possible for its patients. Dr Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) arrives with the belief that just because New Amsterdam is a public hospital, it shouldn't have to sacrifice quality care for its patients. Dr. Goodwin has cancer and wants to do something good to leave a legacy before his death.

This show is a bit slow and needs a faster pace, but the acting is good. I think I will keep watching to see if the show's pace gets better. This show is heartwarming and makes you want to aspire to something better, but you have to suspend disbelief because a hospital like this only exists on television. I give this show a 4 out of 5 stars because it is worth watching .

MORE INFORMATION:

Inspired by the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama 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.
 
“New Amsterdam” is inspired by Dr. Eric Manheimer’s memoir “Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital” and his fifteen years as Medical Director at the hospital.
The cast includes Ryan Eggold, Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.
 
David Schulner will write and executive produce. Kate Dennis will direct and executive produce the pilot. Peter Horton also executive produce. Dr. Eric Manheimer will produce. “New Amsterdam” is produced by Universal Television, Pico Creek Productions and Mount Moriah.
