This eight-part documentary focuses on Northwell Lenox Hill Hospital’s doctors and team members in brain surgery, emergency medicine and obstetrics. It puts the humanity in medicine. The doctors’ attachment and love for patients, which is reciprocated so many times over, the lives saved, and those lost. Compassion is shown to all who enter their hospital. The docs themselves experience the circle of life and death – and the joy and sorrow – that their patients do. This series shows what we hope medical care always is: compassionate, empathic, rewarding, and equal-opportunity regardless of income or status. Through watching this season, I just grew to love them all and would highly recommend it.
Dr. Marsha Gordon is President/CEO of The Business Council of Westchester. When she is not advocating for business, building the economy or creating job opportunities, you can find her at the movie theatre enjoying many different film genres. Most of the time, her husband Eli is with her… except if it is football season or if it is a very slow, sappy movie.
