Biographical History

St. Elsewhere was a weekly television drama series produced by MTM Enterprises which originally ran on NBC from October 26, 1982 to May 25, 1988. The series was set in a decaying urban teaching hospital called St. Eligius Hospital in Boston's South End neighborhood. The hospital's nickname, "St. Elsewhere," is medical industry slang for poor hospitals that serve patients not wanted by the more prestigious institutions. As a medical drama, St. Elsewhere dealt with serious issues of life and death, though episodes also included a substantial amount of black comedy. The show ran for six seasons and 137 episodes.
