New Amsterdam Review

Anyone who has ever been in a management position can attest that a good part of their daily workload includes putting out figurative fires.

In the new NBC show, New Amsterdam, Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) is the new medical director of the fictional New Amsterdam hospital in New York City. New Amsterdam hospital is one of the oldest public hospitals in the country. He believes that treatment of patients comes before billing, which might not sit well with upper management. While he is juggling his new job, Max is dealing with his own health issues and the upcoming birth of his first child.

I really enjoyed the first episode. The writing, acting and pacing of the episode was just right. The show, for me, at least also highlighted that the medical industry has partially lost its way.  Patients come second, billing comes first.

I recommend it.

New Amsterdam airs 10pm on Tuesday night on NBC.
