Visiting General Hospital Set

While on my LA press trip I got the opportunity to visit the set of General Hospital. My pal Val is a die hard General Hospital fan so she was super excited too! What’s amazing about General Hospital is that they celebrated 50 years in April of 2013. Amazing! We had a neat tour through Port Charles, the hospital set and was able to meet some of the actors and actresses.

I’m sure everyone knows what General Hospital is but if not here’s more about the show, which airs weekdays on ABC 2:00-3:00 pm EST/1:00-2:00 pm PST.

“General Hospital,” which celebrated its golden anniversary on April 1, 2013, continues its tradition of passion, intrigue and adventure that takes place in the fictional town of Port Charles in upstate New York. The glamour and excitement of those who have come to find their destinies in this familiar seaport town intertwine with the lives, loves and fortunes of beloved, well-known faces. As always, love, danger and mind blowing plot twists continue to abound on “General Hospital” with contemporary storylines and unforgettable characters.

Don’t forget about the iconic Nurses Ball gala held by Port Charles. The Nurses Ball episodes air May 8 through May 13 on General Hospital. Don’t miss it!

Learn More About the Nurses Ball:

Port Charles will once again hold the iconic Nurses Ball gala, a fundraiser for HIV and AIDS awareness and research. As the Nurses Ball 2014 begins, several popular Port Charles residents will be noticeably absent from the Red Carpet and stuck at home watching the festivities on TV. Old and new loves will percolate while others find themselves in awkward situations. Amidst all the romantic drama, the never-dull Nurses Ball audience will be entertained with fun performances and sexy surprises.

We were able to view the gowns and outfits worn to past Nurses Balls. Fitness and weight loss guru and tiny shorts wearer Richard Simmons wore this purple number to the 2013 Nurses Ball. Believe it or not, purple pants come with the jacket! Oh fun! I love Richard Simmons so much!

Here are some more great pictures from our set visit. The gorgeous Emme Rylan, who plays Lulu Spencer Falconeri, even spent some time with us! Emme started on the show in 2013 so she’s kind of a newcomer you could say. She was so nice and beautiful!

General Hospital Set Visit

Before we left, ABC and General Hospital gave each of us bloggers one of their 50th anniversary hats. Only a few were made so it was an awesome souvenir. Since my pal Val is such a huge GH fan, I give mine to her. She was beyond excited! Here she is modeling it!
