Twelve Patients

Twelve Patients

Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital

In the spirit of Oliver Sacks Awakenings and the TV series House, Dr. Eric Manheimer’s TWELVE PATIENTS is a memoir from the Medical Director of Bellevue Hospital that uses the plights of twelve very different patients-from dignitaries at the nearby UN, to supermax prisoners from Riker’s Island, to illegal immigrants, and Wall Street tycoons-to illustrate larger societal issues. Manheimer is not only the medical director of the country’s oldest public hospital, but he is also a patient. As the audiobook unfolds, the narrator is diagnosed with cancer, and he is forced to wrestle with the end of his own life even as he struggles to save the lives of others.
