TV's Fictional Hospitals Are Helping Real Hospitals Amid COVID-19 Global Crisis
Concerns about the coronavirus pandemic are still high. That's why several medical television shows have donated their supplies, props, and costumes to local hospitals, after going into hiatus. Read the full story below...
Some television shows went into hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, including a series of medical dramas like The Resident, Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, New Amsterdam, and The Good Doctor.
COVID-19 concerns are still high, so the television medical dramas have been donating their props, supplies and costumes to real hospitals and locals in need.
Grey's Anatomy and The Resident's producers are donating supplies to local hospitals in California and Atlanta
In California, Krista Vernoff, Station 19's executive producer, who also works on Grey's Anatomy, announced they donated about 300 coveted N95 masks to a local fire station, which was out of masks. On the other hand, the production of Grey's Anatomy donated backstock gowns and gloves to local Los Angeles hospitals.
In Atlanta, the production of Fox's The Resident donated supplies to the local hospital Grady Memorial. The show's staff and crew filled two trunks with masks, gloves, gowns, scrubs, hair covers, shoe covers, isolation gowns, and lab coats.

"Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." . To the entire team @theresidentonfox, thank you for this incredibly generous donation of #PPE from your set, including gowns, masks, gloves, and all the things our healthcare workers need to provide safe care for our community during #COVID19. . Yesterday, I had a serious discussion with the residents about how, though supplies are low, a magical shipment of masks is unlikely to arrive. And yet, a magical shipment of masks DID arrive, in the form of this very generous gesture. This kind of community support means so much to our #frontlineproviders who are making many sacrifices to staff our hospitals and care for our community. . Thank you, @theresidentonfox and @foxtv for being helpers. We needed this kind of good news today. . PS: Sorry it's not a great pic, but the focus was not on the photo at the time. Similarly, the team @theresidentonfox are good citizens doing good deeds and not looking for a shout out. Though I encourage all to support The Resident and the great team behind the show and to pay their good deed forward any way you can. . #Hurstlife #residentlife #emoryIMresidents #lookforthehelpers #gratitude
New Amsterdam and The Good Doctor team up with local hospitals in these difficult times
In addition, New Amsterdam's showrunner David Schulner announced that the medical show donated "everything" to NYC's Bellevue Hospital, following the series production shutdown. Daniel Dae Kim, who stars as "Dr. Cassain" in New Amsterdam, recently revealed he tested postitive for coronavirus.
Last but not least, The Good Doctor, based in Vancouver, sent its medical stock to Canadian government to use and distribute. Cast and crew of the medical dramas are not only giving away their supplies but also doing their part to help by staying home.
