Synopsis

After overcoming a painful miscarriage and a divorce from her philandering lawyer wife, Doctor Lee Lopez fights an uphill battle to stop her inner- city hospital from closing in THE DEDICATED PHYSICIAN, written by the award -winning father and son writing team of Michael and Andrew M Volpe.
Neonatal physician Lopez starts her day by saving the life of an injured, single mom and successfully delivering her premature baby. Lopez then swings into battle against a greedy board of directors bent on closing the only hospital available to the poor because it loses money. Lopez’s impassionate plea to the board falls short. But when all seems lost a well -timed protest and an unlikely alliance helps Lopez save the hospital from closure. Years later, Lopez’s life is saved by the very person she helped bring into the world.
