(Silver Spring, Md.) - The fast-paced medical documentary series, SYDNEY ER, is heading back to Discovery Fit & Health for a second season. Viewers will get a glimpse into Australia's world-class St. Vincent's Hospital, which is located just a stone's throw from Sydney's bustling business district and entertainment hub. Each 30-minute episode follows an extraordinary team of doctors, nurses and specialists, as they work together to deal with the frenetic pace of one of Australia's busiest emergency departments. SYDNEY ER premieres Friday, March 7, 2014 at 9PM (ET/PT) on Discovery Fit & Health.
In the premiere episode, a hip-hop artist comes into the ER after being stabbed in the chest following a performance. The St. Vincent's staff is put to the ultimate test when faced with a split second decision that could save the young man's life, but could also ultimately kill him. With the most diverse patient population of any emergency department in the country, this first-class medical team treats everyone from rock stars and celebrities to business moguls and the homeless - all in need of urgent care. Other cases featured this season include gunshot injuries, alcohol-fueled head traumas, drug overdoses, car crash casualties and everything in between.
SYDNEY ER is produced by Eyeworks Australia.
