What would you do to change the U.S. health system?

That's what Max Goodwin has to think about on New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 1 when he becomes medical director at America's oldest hospital. 

His aim is to tear up the bureaucracy and to provide exceptional care, but that comes with some major caveats. 

His staff is not ready to embrace change, and that causes a lot of issues for him. 

Does he manage to change things?

New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 1 Quotes

My sister Luna and I were born here in New Amsterdam, and eight years later, Luna died here. Hospital-acquired infection. Entirely preventable.

Max

Max: Unlike the previous medical director, I actually expect you to practice medicine at this hospital because I don't know, that's your job.
Helen: You're funny.
Max: You said that.
Helen: I'll tell you what, I'll continue giving speeches all over the world because you can't afford the type of publicity I give this hospital. And I'll continue my on-air appearances with Ellen, Oprah, and anyone else powerful enough to go by one name because someone has to remind New York that even though New Amsterdam is an underfunded public hospital, we can still go toe-to-toe with the privates from basic care to state of the art procedures. I will be back next week with lunch at the Tavern. My treat.
