A cutting-edge, research-oriented hospital with an advanced Level-I Trauma Center.

Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital (or Grey+Sloan Memorial Hospital) is a Level I Advanced Trauma Center and teaching hospital in Seattle, Washington. It was formerly known as Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital. Established in 2013, Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is distinct as it is owned and run by doctors. It is the flagship hospital of the Catherine Fox Foundation.


Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital was formed by the new board of directors, the survivors of the plane crash, plus Callie and Jackson in Transplant Wasteland when they decided to rename the hospital as part of their new image for the hospital. The name honors the very reason they have the hospital in the first place and memorializes the two doctors killed in the plane crash, Lexie Grey and Mark Sloan.

The building has been renamed twice: It was initially Seattle Grace Hospital, then became Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital after merging with Mercy West Medical Center, and finally was renamed Grey Sloan Memorial after the plane crash survivors and the Harper Avery Foundation bought it.[source?]

Notes and Trivia


A map of the Grey Sloan campus

  • The hospital houses 500 beds.[source?]
  • External shots of the hospital are of VA Supulveda Ambulatory Care Center in Los Angeles. As of the middle of season twelve, exterior shots are filmed at the West Los Angeles College.[source?]
  • According to Dr. Lauren Boswell, the owners of the hospital (Meredith, Cristina, Derek, Callie, Arizona, Richard, and Jackson) are called the "Grey Sloan Seven". Alex Karev was also part-owner of the hospital, as Cristina gave him her shares. However, he was not part of the board, because Cristina legally couldn't give him her board seat without the consent of the other board members. It's unknown if he's also considered part of the Grey Sloan Seven now or if this nickname is only intended for the original buyers.[source?]
    • The Hospital according to the episode in season 8 was on sale for a total $253 million - originally the Grey Sloan Seven only had $75 million (from the settlement they received) in looking for investors they failed, Meredith explains to Richard who said he could do $3 million bringing their share up to $78 million. It was only when Richard explains to Catherine when she invested $175 million of the foundations money into the offer bringing the total to $253 million.
      • Meredith, Cristina, Derek, Callie, Arizona originally owned 5.93% and Richard 1.19% each bringing the total ownership to 30.84%
      • The Harper Avery Foundation (at the time) would have held 69.17% which gave them the majority.
    • Tom Koracick is also part-owner of the hospital, as Alex gave Jo his shares when he divorced her and moved to Kansas to be with Izzie Stevens and their children. She later sold them to Tom. Tom, like Alex and Jo, is also not part of the board.[3]
    • Meredith Grey likely inherited her husbands share bringing her ownership to 11.86%
    • Richard Webber is also a part-owner of the hospital; despite not being one of the board directors, he is a board member.[source?]
    • Current owners: Catherine Fox Foundation (69.17%), Meredith Grey (11.86%), Richard Webber (1.19%), Callie Torres (5.93%), Arizona Robbins (5.93%) and Tom Koracick (5.93%).
  • The new badge IDs issued by Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital correct the staff's departments:

      • As of season twelve, Jackson's badge was updated to show his department as "Reconstructive Surgery".
    • Derek's ID consistently shows "Neurosurgery" instead of alternating back and forth between that and "Surgery."
    • General surgeons' IDs no longer have "Surgery" as a department, but have been updated to show "General Surgery."
    • Surgical interns' IDs no longer show "Surgery;" instead, the IDs show "Surgical Intern". However as of Time Stops, the interns' badges have reverted back to show "Surgery".
    • Owen's ID badge no longer shows "Chief of Surgery", but rather his department.
    • Both Owen's and April's department is now listed as "Emergency Room/Trauma Surgery".
  • Nurse ID badges have been updated as of season twelve, showing an additional, larger section of the badge indicating they are R.N.s.
