Trivia

This show almost didn't get on the air because the fictional Ecumenica Corporation which now owned the hospital sounded too much like the real-life Humana Corporation. During the closing credits, NBC put up a full-screen disclaimer over part of the titles stating that Ecumenica was fictitious. See more »
