Seattle Grace Hospital

So I found myself in Seattle Grace Hospital today. For those who aren't in the know, this hospital is the setting of my favorite TV show Grey's Anatomy.

I was invited to give a talk at a VA hospital in the valley ("the valley" is an area about 30 minutes north of LA), and when I arrived I immediately noticed a motorized golf cart labeled with "Grey's Anatomy" driving around the lot. Once I was inside the hospital, there was one section of the top floor filled with camera crews, lighting, screens, and other filming gear. After looking around a bit, I saw that well-known breezeway seen in almost every episode, the concrete pathway leading up to the hospital, and a lot of SGH signs on windows and floormats! I love getting behind-the-scenes and seeing film sets, so I was pretty excited.

(Hm, considering how much I hate this show, I sure talk about it a lot.)

So Grey's Anatomy is filmed at a VA? Who would have thought.

BTW, hope you get the spot you want on match day!

Congratulations on your match!!! Hopefully this was somewhere near your top.
The Pacific Northwest is beautiful. Better than LA...
Enjoy your last few months of relative "freedom" until July 1st...

peanut gallery -- yeah, I was surprised too. but it's a brand new VA, and it's incredibly modern and nice.

keagirl -- I didn't match there, I was just giving a talk there!
