Hopkins 24/7 premiered on ABC on August 31, 2000. This is a study of Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Medicine, offering a detailed look at life in a hospital. The series was culled from 900 hours of film shot over a three-month period, as hand-held cameras were used to follow doctors and patients around the clock. Nearly eight years after the first season, ABC News returns to Baltimore's John Hopkins Hospital for a new look inside the legendary hospital to meet patients in the throes of medical crisis and young doctors forced to make life and death decisions on the fly while struggling to keep their personal relationships from unraveling. Shot in high definition with unparalleled access for over four months, ABC News takes an intimate look at the men and women who call this hospital home.
