What is New Amsterdam about?

New Amsterdam follows a renegade doctor, Max Goodwin, who struggles to accept the realities of the American healthcare system.

Goodwin is the medical director at America’s oldest public hospital and he frequently flaunts the rules as he tries to rework the system from the inside.

Season four follows a hectic year for the hospital staff and many are hoping that they are about to turn a page on their stressful lives.

The series also follows the personal lives of the hospital staff - and season four sees a development in the relationship between Goodwin and fellow doctor Helen Sharpe.

Doctor Bloom’s relationship with Doctor Leyla Shinwari will also take on new dimensions, Doctor Frome embarks on a new career and Doctor Reynolds will deal with personal issues of his own.

Season four also sees the arrival of a new member of staff, Doctor Veronica Fuentes who plans to turn the hospital around.

Unfortunately her methods don’t prove popular as she takes aim at all the policies Goodwin had enacted over the last three years.
