Locations Detail

   After having analyzed in the previous episodes some buildings in the Warner Bros Studios backlot used in TV series such as "Hazzard" and "Gilmore's Girls", today is the time to analyze the buildings used in the TV series "E.R.". The buildings we will talk about remain not far from the main square and present within the red box in the image below.

   The first series of buildings that we are going to analyze are those that house the Emergency Department of the County General Hospital of Chicago: a feature that immediately catches the eye is the presence of fake subway tracks that overlook the buildings for their entire length. In the image it is also possible to see the entrance arch of the Polyclinic, in this case closed by a wooden door.

   In the image below, we can see the same area at the time of filming the "E.R." series, with the set fully configured to represent the facade of the Chicago County General Hospital. In this case the door is absent and it is possible to see the internal square and the actual entrance to the Emergency Room, where we have often seen the main characters of the series enter and leave.

   In the following images it's possible to see from different angles the main entrance of the County General Hospital: these are always images that portray the building during a few moments of pause from the recordings of the episodes of the TV series.

   In the following image, you can see the entire cast of the series (related to Season 8) just outside the main entrance, where you can see the County General Hospital sign.

   Below it is possible to observe some details of the elevated underground structure and more precisely of the "Blue Line and Shepherd Avenue Station" stop. At the bottom, on the right, you can see the panels relating to faux facades used to mask the rest of the set during filming.

   Here, on the other hand, it is possible to better observe the internal square of the County General Hospital: with its L-shaped structure, on the left there is the entrance to the Emergency Department, where ambulances often arrived and stopped to unload the wounded and on the right one of the normal entrances to the hospital.

   In the following images it is possible to see a comparison of the area adjacent to the entrance arch: it is possible to see both the billboard with the indications for the various departments, and the rectangular plot of one of the sides of the arch.

   Moreover, in the following images it is possible to see the entrance to the Emergency Room during one of the episodes and during a break from filming.

   In the following aerial image it is possible to see the complex of buildings used in "E.R". for the County General Hospital but also the series of buildings positioned in front of the hospital including Doc Magoo's Diner, the restaurant where nurses and doctors met for breakfast or dinner at the end of their shifts.

   From the arch of the main entrance, leaving the emergency room square behind you, you can see the buildings across the street, including a diner (now called Jumbo Mart and used in the TV series "Shameless").

   In the following images you can see the comparison between the old building that housed Doc Magoo's Diner and the new building that housed the Jumbo Mart: as you can see, the architecture of the two buildings has unfortunately completely changed and not much remains of the old diner attended by Dr. Greene & Co.

   In 2009 I went for the first time to visit Warner Bros Studios: unfortunately that year they stop to film the TV series "E.R." and the area of the set was not open to the public due to changes to the area. I was able to take only two photos where it is possible to see part of the facade but above all the elevated structure of the subway. Needless to say, as an enthusiast, I was very disappointed: I was so close to the place I had seen and attended "on television" for 15 years and a wire mesh prevented me from getting closer.

   Just outside that area, however, I managed to see these 3 vehicles linked to the "E.R." series, two ambulances and a police car, all marked with the city of Chicago (as can be seen from the "Chicago Fire Department" enlargement).

   In 2018, during our honeymoon, I returned to Warner Bros Studios and again during the VIP Tour I was finally able to visit the area used in the "E.R." series. I was then able to admire the façade of the buildings and the characteristic elevated structure of the subway up close. The entrance to the emergency room, as I had already mentioned at the beginning of this article, was unfortunately closed with a wood door.

   Here are other details of the main facade and the subway taken in 2018 during my last visit to Warner Bros Studios.

   Also on my last visit, here is another angle of the elevated subway structure and some work vehicles parked under it.

   Below the last shot of the building where Doc Magoo's Diner previously stood, where you can see the facade of the County General Hospital in the reflection of the glass and also the little train we were traveling on during the Warner Bros Studios VIP Tour .

   Finally, an aerial 3D image taken from Google Maps where you can see the location of the various buildings that I have presented to you in this article compared to the rest of the main square of Warner Bros Studios.
