Medical Center: If Wishes Were Horses

Three doctors try to operate a community hospital in a tough ghetto district. A much-needed clinic is threatened with closure because the doctors refuse to turn wounded street fighters over to the police.

Scott Hylands, Philip M. Thomas, William Redfield and Mary McCarty head the guest cast in this episode of "Medical Center". Hylands, Thomas and Redfield play owner-doctors of a San Francisco clinic, named Angel's Nest, which exists mostly through their dedication and the loyalty of their nurse, played by Miss McCarty. William Windom, Pepe Serna, Kim Richards, Percy Rodrigues and Eugene Roche also guest star in the teleplay directed by Gene Reynolds from a script by James Henerson.
The future of Angel's Nest is in doubt after a vengeful police officer places it off-limits for ambulance service due to its doctors' practice of ministering to patients rather than seeking justice for them. A bizzare solution to a gang war reinstates the clinic to the law's good graces.
