St. Sebastian Hospital

Person Pic Notes
Dr. Jack Shephard
main article
  • Jack Shephard is a doctor and leader-figure of the middle section. He has control issues and trouble dealing with situations that he cannot fix. However, these are also attributes that lend him the ability to function well in a crisis.
  • When his father performed surgery under the influence of alcohol, causing the death of a young woman, Jack initially covered for his father by lying during the inquest. He later changed his statement after being informed that the woman was pregnant at the time of her death.
  • When two patients arrived at St Sebastians following a car crash, Jack chose to treat his future wife, Sarah Shephard, forgoing the oppurtunity to treat the other patient, Shannon's father Adam Rutherford, who died shortly afterwards.

Head Doctor

Head Doctor.jpg
  • Head Doctor The head doctor of St. Sebastian's peer review panel appears in "All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues." and reveals the fact that Jack's father's patient that he killed by operating drunk was pregnant, thus making Christian liable for not one, but two, deaths. This startles Jack into reneging on his promise to his father to lie that the death was accidental. Thus, not-so-dear old dad loses his hospital privileges and is estranged from Jack.
