From “Grey’s Anatomy” to “Chicago Med,” there is a wide range of hospital-setting shows.

The medical drama that has been on air the longest is “General Hospital” with the first episode shown in 1963.

Medical drama, “General Hospital” has an official Twitter page. Updates about the show are often posted on it.

The website soap.sheknows.com credited the show for “starting the trend of the ‘supercouple’ for all soaps. The storyline focuses on the trials and tribulations of hospital staff, mobsters and other residents of the fictional town of Port Charles.”

The show is still a big hit and continues to draw an interest to many kinds of people.

Another highly rated show is ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
