Hospital City

Shot at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John's, Newfoundland, this documentary reveals the workings of a contemporary health-care facility. Accompanied by hospital staff, we travel through labs, pharmacies, supply rooms, operating theatres and patient rooms from the maternity ward to the morgue. As debate in Canada and the world rages over health care, Hospital City offers a moving, human portrait of the people whom the issues touch most closely.

  • “What was said about housekeeping is so true! I was in the hospital for 8 months in NS after a spinal cord injury and I looked forward to housekeeping and the lunch lady every day! They took the time to actually get to know me and talk. They knew me better than the Dr's did! I'll always be thankful for the time they spent chatting.” — WildKat, 19 Dec 2010
