New Amsterdam season 1
The protagonist of New Amsterdam season 1 is Dr. Max Goodwin. This true professional and leader becomes the new chief doctor of the oldest state hospital in the United States, "New Amsterdam". Hardly taking office, he unleashes a war with the bureaucracy: the doctor is planning to restore the former glory and prestige of the hospital, where patients with the Ebola virus and American president will equally be treated. Despite all his efforts, the staff does not trust the new head physician. His predecessors also promised to bring the hospital in order, but all their big words were just words. But he does not intend to give up. Max himself fights with a deadly disease, that’s why he well knows how important is a timely diagnosis and proper treatment.

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.
