Background

The show centers on the staff of fictional Rittenhouse Hospital in Philadelphia, largely involving the operations of the ER and a free sexual health clinic, run by inner-city success story Dr. Luisa "Lu" Delgado. The urban facility receives a diverse mixture of patients, from upper- and middle-class patients, which generally allows the hospital to finance the free clinic, and lower-class or poor patients, who come to take advantage of Dr. Delgado's hospital-funded services. This is a list of fictional institutions, that is, fictional organizations from literature and entertainment that are not companies, governments, nor schools. ... Nickname: City of Brotherly Love, Philly, the Quaker City Motto: Philadelphia maneto (Let brotherly love continue) Location in Pennsylvania Coordinates: Country United States State Pennsylvania County Philadelphia Founded October 27, 1682 Incorporated October 25, 1701 Mayor John F. Street (D) Area    - City 369. ... The emergency room is the American English term for a room, or group of rooms, within a hospital that is designed for the treatment of urgent and medical emergencies. ...


The staff and its visitors tend to be racially, politically, and economically diverse. A core class/political duality in the episodes' storylines tend to be driven by comparisons and contrasts (and often cooperation) between liberal Delgado, and her fellow women's health practitioner across the lobby, who sees paying patients and generally has more conservative values -- this role has been filled by various characters, most recently Dr. Dylan West. The show often places the characters in ironic, soul-searching situations in which they are forced to question the solidity of their personal beliefs or else cause them to fight for what they believe in. Diversity The division of classes among a certain population. ...


Main characters

Main characters on the show as of last season include:


Dr. Luisa "Lu" Amandita Delgado

(Rosa Blasi) Born 11/18/70[1]. Delgado runs the free clinic (first the South Philly Sexual Health Clinic and, since the pilot, the Rittenhouse Sexual Health Center), and hosts a support group (most 2003 and 2004 episodes open with a scene from these meetings). Both as a friend and a doctor to many lower-class patients, Delgado regularly comes face-to-face with bitterly ironic situations involving the difficulties of the lower class with government, debt, drug abuse, and exploitation. Her character exhibits a perennial cleverness which allows her to wheedle or persuade positive outcomes from seemingly hopeless cases of victimization. She was raised by her grandmother, Isabel Veracruz Cardinal Santana, who now lives in Guatemala, and had a son, Marc, when she was 16, whom she raised alone. Marc has been at college since the 2004-2005 season. Rosa Estelle Blasi (born December 19, 1972) is an American actress. ... A clinic or outpatient clinic is a small medical facility that provides health care for ambulatory patients - as opposed to inpatients treated in a hospital. ...

The term exploitation may carry two distinct meanings: The act of utilizing something for any purpose. ...


Until recently, Delgado has had no luck with a relationship. Her first boyfriend, Radio show host Harry Burr (Don Michael Paul) had to leave her because his ex-wife was using their relationship to gain custody of his daughter Tiffanie, who was also her son Marc's girlfriend. In fact, shades of Lu's past came back to haunt her when Marc and Tiffanie faced a pregnancy scare. [2] Soon after, she survived being raped by the Rittenhouse's new Head of Surgery, Dr. Randolf Kilner. [1] The subject of this article may not satisfy the notability guideline or one of the following guidelines for inclusion on Wikipedia: Biographies, Books, Companies, Fiction, Music, Neologisms, Numbers, Web content, or several proposals for new guidelines. ...


She lost her first serious boyfriend, fireman Miguel "Herman" Arenas (Julian Acosta), to a murder perpetrated by one of her patients[3], forcing her to face her moral objection to the death penalty. She later becomes involved with Harold Goldstein (Grant Show), an administrator brought on after Rittenhouse is bought by a health care conglomerate, Octavian. Goldstein later left to be reassigned to a facility in Miami. He asked Lu to come with him but, after thinking about it, she refused because her patients are there.[4] Capital punishment, or the death penalty, is the execution of a convicted criminal by the state as punishment for crimes known as capital crimes or capital offences. ... Grant Show Grant Show is an actor who starred on Melrose Place as Jake Hanson from 1992 to 1997. ... This article is about the city in Florida. ...


Soon after, she became involved with Jonas Hernandez Avilar, a local self-made millionaire with a good heart but a large soulless corporation. In the 2005-2006 season she and Jonas get married, and Lu struggles to get accustomed to a wealthier life, while trying to reconcile it with her inner-city loyalties. After Lu discovered she was pregnant with Jonas' baby, Jonas is plagued by an embezzlement scandal at his company, bringing his fortune into doubt.


In the series finale, they decided to move to Jonas' childhood home, but while he was showing it to Lu, they were affected by an explosion and got caught in the ruined basement. Lu was injured and her placenta detached. She asked Jonas to perform an emergency C-Section to save her and the baby, but she fainted during the procedure. Luckily, the firemen arrived and called Dylan, who completed the C-Section, and Lu gave birth to their daughter, whom was named Basura (which means "miracle" in Spanish). [5] The placenta is an ephemeral (temporary) organ present in female placental vertebrates during gestation (pregnancy), but a placenta has evolved independently also in other animals as well, for instance scorpions and velvet worms. ... A caesarean section (cesarean section AE), is a surgical incision through a mothers abdomen (laparotomy) and uterus (hysterotomy) to deliver one or more fetuses. ...


Dr. Dylan West

(Rick Schroder) Replacing Dr. Campbell's role is Dr. Dylan West, a male women's health specialist. His gender raises initial eyebrows, especially with Delgado, who has also had past negative experiences with him as a john. He has his own troubled past and seems to be seeking to redeem himself from something at Rittenhouse. He is a diabetic, which becomes a recurring plot device. Dylan has tremendously bad luck in romance. One such former love interest arrives at Rittenhouse needing a new heart to survive; West is unable to save her life, but gains a teenaged half-Japanese daughter, Araya (Marjorie Flores), he never knew he had [6]. His relationship with his daughter is troubled at first, but slowly they get to know each other.

Peter Riggs

(Josh Coxx) A registered nurse and midwife, Peter is generally progressive, open-minded, and an eager advice-giver. He practices Buddhism and believes in the principles of holistic medicine. He is often a kindred spirit to Delgado. Often, Riggs' character makes a balanced sociopolitical observation that influences a positive action by one of the two doctors; other times he is the protagonist of action. He was also the nurse union representative. [7] Joshua Cox as David Corwin in Babylon 5 Joshua Cox (born August 9, 1965 in San Diego, California, USA) is an American actor. ...

When he met Lu, he almost ran over her with his bicycle. He played the [[triangle (instrument)] in that band until his girlfriend Hildegard (the roadie) dumped him during a fire, and Lu gave him a job in her new free clinic. [8]


Often shown as a ladies man with several girlfriends, he finally has settled into a relationship with Kayla, whom he proposes to in the series finale. [5]


Lana Hawkins

(Jenifer Lewis) Hawkins serves as the front receptionist for the RWHC, or the Rittenhouse Women's Health Center. A former drug addict and streetwalker long since rehabilitated, she met Lu at the same bar Peter and his band were playing at. After a fire destroyed the bar and the owner rented the locale to Lu for her clinic, she gave Lana a job.[8] She has two sons, Harry, an officer in the Navy and Maurice, a con artist who once pretended he had a wife and son to trick his mother out of money.

Hawkins is the hospital's eyes and ears, i.e. chief gossip, as well as matchmaker, and general benevolent schemer and rule-bender. Lana often refers to herself in the third person especially about her struggle with incontinence. Lana went back to school, earned her high school diploma and went to college, earning a degree in psychology. Afterwards, Lu enlisted her to consult for her women's group, as volunteer work towards her Master's degree. She was maid of honor at Lu's wedding.

Kayla Thornton

(Tamera Mowry) A new doctor and young medical prodigy, Thornton is a fast study at Rittenhouse, entering residency in the begining of the 2004-2005 season and becoming a depended-upon ER regular by the end of that season, despite occasional disbelief by patients that she is a qualified doctor. As she becomes a main character to the show, her personality can be compared to that of a young Dr. Delgado with her ambition and hard work. She decided to become a doctor as a young girl when a brother was shot in the chest by a friend when playing with a hunting rifle. While the friend ran for help, Kayla cradled her dying brother. The nearest doctor was 25 miles away, so therefore Kayla's brother died in her arms. She then decided to become a doctor.[citation needed] Tamera Darvette Mowry (born July 6, 1978) is an American actress. ...


Throughout the medical drama's seasons, Thornton rooms with various fellow staff members in her search for affordable housing. First she tries Lu's but can't sleep with all the men coming and going all hours of the night. Then, she moves into Dr. Campbell's house, where she spends some of her time helping with Andy's two daughters. After Andy's departure, she rooms with Lana, and later with Peter, with whom she has a budding relationship. She was later on selected as Chief Resident after narrowly missing it due to a complex emergency house call. We find out that she has a twin sister, Keisha (played by real-life twin sister Tia Mowry) who ends up needing 24-hour care for a schizophrenic mental disorder, an emotional time for Kayla.

Jonas Hernandez Avilar

(Nestor Carbonell) A local self-made billionaire with a good heart but a large soulless corporation. He first appeared on Rittenhouse when his mother was brought to ER due an accident. While his mother was in the hospital, he saw Lu interacting with several of her patients. Even before he exchanged a single word with Lu, he told his mother he'll marry her.[4] Nestor Carbonell (born December 1, 1967 in New York, New York) is an American actor best known for his role as Luis Rivera on the sitcom Suddenly Susan. ...


He met and pursued Lu until she agreed to date him. They got married in the middle of the 2005-2006 season. After personally bringing sick South American children to Rittenhouse for treatment, Jonas is plagued by an embezzlement scandal at his company, bringing his fortune and stability into doubt. After discovering that Lana had actions of his company, he decided to sell most of his assets and pay the shareholders back a part of their money. He and Lu moved to his childhood home, but while he was showing it to Lu, they were affected by an explosion and got caught in the ruined basement. Lu convinced him to perform an emergency C-Section to save her and the baby, but she fainted during the procedure. Luckily, Dylan arrives to deliver their daughter.[5] South America South America is a continent crossed by the equator, with most of its area in the Southern Hemisphere. ...


Former characters

Dr. Dana Stowe

(Janine Turner), an ambitious doctor and scientist seeking a cure for cancer; she is rigid and stoic, but cares deeply about her patients. Like her successor Andy Campbell, she was good friends with Jackson. She had a short-lived relationship with resident doctor Nick Biancavilla, which she broke up when he wasn't willing to have children. Janine Turner (born Janine Loraine Gauntt on December 6, 1962) is an American actress, known for her starring role on General Hospital from 1982 to 1983 and the prime time television show Northern Exposure from 1990 to 1995. ...


Her character left the show at the end of the 2001-2002 season after adopting two challenged children (an HIV-positive infant and her older sister), choosing to put her medical ambitions aside to pursue a successful motherhood.[9]


Dr. Andy Campbell

(Patricia Richardson) A former military doctor with the rank of Colonel, Campbell came on the staff during the third season[10] to replace the much more ambitious and strict Dr. Dana Stowe. Her patients tend to be upper-middle-class, and often include minor local celebrities and professionals. Her character ostensibly lives the almost typical suburban nuclear family lifestyle, aside from her status as breadwinner. She has two teenage daughters, Jesse and Lizzie. Patricia Castle Richardson (born February 23, 1951 in Bethesda, Maryland) is an American television and film actress best known for her role as Jill Taylor on Home Improvement. ...


Campbell kicked out her husband, Leslie, after he hit her during a domestic dispute, forcing her to examine domestic abuse issues as well as single motherhood. Campbell and Leslie had been married for thirty years without any violence in the home, and Leslie is presented as changing from a loving husband to a violent maniac over the course of a single episode. She later becomes involved with another doctor, cardiac surgeon Dr. Milo Morton but he dies in a car accident[11] (a development forced by the death of actor Richard Biggs due to an undiagnosed heart condition). Abuse is a general term for the misuse of a person or thing, causing harm to the person or thing, to the abuser, or to someone else. ...

Dr. Robert "Bob" Jackson

(Philip Casnoff) Chief of staff of Rittenhouse Hospital, he is the stoic, administrative figure and also ultimately in charge of decisions regarding funding, especially to the women's clinic. Jackson had once been a top surgeon but when a young girl died during surgery due to a mislabeled drug doseage, Jackson lost his nerve for the operating room and moved to administration. Jackson considers himself a personal friend of Dr. Campbell (as he was with Dr. Stowe), but generally is more impersonal and sometimes butts heads with Dr. Delgado over financial or liability issues, and with Lana over administrative issues. He was married with two daughters, Lauren and Paige. A recurring subplot throughout the series was Jackson dealing with his beloved wife Susan's advancing MS condition. He even briefly left her, unable to watch her succumb to the illness, but eventually went back to her. Jackson's character was laid off by hospital owner Octavian prior to the start of the sixth season. Philip Casnoff (born August 3, 1953 in Philadelphia) is an American actor, known mainly from TV movies and series roles. ... Multiple Sclerosis (abbreviated MS, also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata) is a chronic, inflammatory, demyelinating disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). ...


Dr. Nick Biancavilla

(Brennan Elliott), an ER doctor at Rittenhouse who had a brief relationship with Dr. Stowe. He has four older sisters, one of them (Francine 'Frankie' Biancavilla) a lesbian whose girlfriend he married to get her the medical care she needed. It didn't work because Dr. Jackson found out, but he gave his sister a medical plan as "wedding gift" that covered existing illnesses. She promised she'd pay it herself once she got promoted. He left at the end of season 4 when he transferred to Manhattan General. Brennan Elliott - born in Calgary, Alberta - is a Canadian actor. ...


Marc Delgado

(Chris Marquette), Lu's teenage son, whom she had when she was a teenager. He lived with his mother, but saw his father Bill Muller (who was married with young twin boys) regularly. He once saved his great-grandmother Isabel Veracruz Cardinal Santana's life with a bone marrow transplant. He left for college in the middle of season 5, after graduating one year in advance [4] but returned once for Lu's wedding, and walked her to the altar in his trademark red Keds shoes.
