Synopsis
TV Series (1963-Today). General Hospital, the innovative, award-winning drama series, celebrated 43 years of broadcasting on April 1, 2006. General Hospital is the longest-running dramatic serial on the ABC Television Network, having aired its 11,000th episode on February 20, 2006, and is the longest-running Daytime drama produced on the West Coast. For the 2005 television season, the show won five Emmy Awards.

In April 2006, General Hospital made Daytime Emmy history - for the second year in a row - as the only Daytime drama to ever receive the prestigious Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama series a record nine times, seven times in the past 11 years (1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2005 and 2006). It had also garnered the Emmy Award as Outstanding Daytime Drama Series in 1980-81 and 1983-84. In 1993, the late Anna Lee (Lila Quartermaine) and the late John Beradino (Dr. Steve Hardy) received stars on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame for their work on the show. In the 40th Anniversary Special Edition of TV Guide, General Hospital was hailed as the "All-Time Best Daytime Soap." In March of 2000 it received the Favorite Daytime Serial award on the nationally broadcast Soap Opera Digest Awards for the fourth consecutive year. In addition, General Hospital has won the Directors Guild Award and the Writers Guild Award for Outstanding Achievement.

The General Hospital tradition of passion, intrigue and adventure takes place in the fictional town of Port Charles, set in upstate New York. The glamour and excitement of those who have come to find their destinies in this familiar seaport town intertwine with the lives, loves and fortunes of beloved, well-known faces. And, as always, love and danger continue to abound on General Hospital with contemporary storylines and unforgettable characters.
