Suicidal Doctor Bock, the medical director of a big New York hospital suffers from depression, made worse by a imploding family and alcohol problems. While accidents mysteriously multiply, he will meet Barbara, a patient's daughter.
After the antimilitarist satire The Americanization of Emily, also directed by Arthur Hiller and Sidney Lumet's visionary Network, The Hospital closes the acid trilogy written by Paddy Chayefsky. Supported by the talents of George C. Scott (Docteur Strangelove, Hardcore) and Diana Rigg (The Avengers), The Hospital pokes fun at this chaotic and ebullient microcosm with causticity and glee.
