HistoryEdit

HospitalizationEdit

6x16-7

Harper Avery admitted to Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital

Dr. Avery was admitted to Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital following collapsing in a restaurant and abdominal pain, while having a meal with Jackson. While at the hospital, he requested an experienced surgeon, first requesting Ellis Grey, and upon learning that she has passed, requested Richard Webber, who diagnosed a bowel obstruction and later operated on Avery. (GA: Perfect Little Accident)

Career Edit

Dr. Harper Avery, and his namesake award, has brought much attention to himself, with the award being highly coveted in the medical field.

Dr. Avery works as an attending surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, which he considers the best facility in the country, and has also saved a place as a surgical resident for his grandson since he graduated - a place which has been rejected multiple times, as Jackson refuses to work for him over nepotistic concerns. (GA: Perfect Little Accident)

Dr. Avery is well aware of Ellis Grey and her achievements, the foundation having awarded her its prize twice, and also Richard Webber, having short-listed him as a candidate for his award due to his past research in regenerative medicine.(GA: Perfect Little Accident)
