> Description 
St. Elsewhere was a serial hospital drama that first aired on NBC in 1982, running for six seasons and 137 episodes until 1988. The series was made by MTM Enterprises, which also made Hill Street Blues, a show with which St. Elsewhere is often compared.

The series was set in a decaying urban teaching hospital called St. Eligius, in a neighborhood of Boston, and took its name from the hospital's nickname. The hospital served 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 series had a large ensemble cast, a "realistic" visual style, and a profusion of interlocking stories. Its influence can be seen in more recent medical series such as ER.
