Story
It has been two years since Sagara Kosuke came to Dogami General Hospital from Tokyo Medical University Hospital and steadily made progress in creating the ideal hospital he envisioned. He is not only skilled in surgery but also when to be lenient and tough, and to inspire people. As a result, the hospital is hardly recognisable from what it used to be. Its patients are full of smiles and its staff brimming with energy. But one day, the hospital director Dogami Tamaki seeks a 200 million yen loan from a bank. Once they arrive at an agreement, she will retire and her position will go to her nephew Moriyama Suguru. Hearing of her decision, Minagawa Kazue and the nurses, who do not trust Moriyama’s character, cannot hide their shock. Moreover, the daughter of a patient whom Moriyama is in charge of feels alarmed by her poor progress after surgery and requests to change the attending physician to Sagara. However, Moriyama is naturally angered and rejects the request. Meanwhile, Sagara hears from SI Pharmaceutical’s medical rep Shibuya Shoko that a loan officer from the bank is carrying out a assessment on the hospital by masquerading as a visitor. Sagara tries to execute some plan and the other doctors and nurses get entangled in it … … Before long, there start to be glimpses of Sagara’s true purpose for coming to Dogami General Hospital.
