Max discovers the extent to which Dr. Fuentes' cuts are severely damaging New Amsterdam and decides it's now or never. Iggy takes an unconventional approach to reach a young patient in need. Reynolds and Wilder perform a risky, life-saving surgery on unborn twins.
The brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin is the Bellevue institution's newest medical director, who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care.
Not taking "no" for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital - the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the president of the United States under one roof - and return it to the glory that put it on the map.
