“Grey’s Anatomy” returns with stylish Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital on ABC. However, there are some changes this time around. Viewers know that they may only see Meredith Gray from one of their favorite characters. One of the longest-running medical drama television series in the genre’s history, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ was well received by critics for most of its run and was included in the year-end top 10 lists of many critics. Since its inception, the media has described the program as a “television phenomenon” or “giant”, due to its longevity and ruling value.
Regardless, season 19 is coming on TV soon, but before that, let’s take a trip down the Memorial Trail and revisit the time when Seattle Grace was renamed Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital. Read on to find out exactly why this happens.

Remember Derek’s childhood friend, Mark Sloan, who was given the nickname “Mixtime” in Season 2 for his good looks and apprentice charm? (You probably remember him better as Nate Jacob’s father from Euphoria Now.) He was the new plastic surgery assistant at Seattle Grace Hospital. Actress Chiller Lee played Lexi Gray, a new intern and Meredith’s sister on the series.
Mark and Lexi have had a relationship and have had their fair share of ups and downs as well as drama. However, their love story ends in tragedy in the Season 8 finale when Mark, Lexi, Derek, Meredith, Christina and Arizona are involved in a plane crash while on their way to Boise, Idaho to work on conjoined twins.
The accident shows Lexi smashed under the rubble. After a failed attempt to save her, Mark holds the hand of the dying Lexi and tells her that he has always loved her and always will. He and the remaining crash victims are left stranded in the woods, mourning Lexi and struggling to survive. Sadly, she died and in Season 9, the remaining surgeons were rescued from the desert days later and Lexi’s body returned to Seattle. “When you love someone, tell them,” Mark told his student Jackson, still grieving over Lexi’s death. Mark felt he didn’t tell Lexi he loved her enough when she was alive and eventually died because he never recovered from the coma.
After Mark’s death, flashbacks from different moments of his life are shown. One of them is at Cali and Arizona’s wedding. At the end of the congratulatory letter, Mark announced that only Lexi, his real partner, wanted to grow up and dance with him at his granddaughter’s wedding.
When the remaining survivors of the plane crash pooled their compensation money to buy Seattle Grace Mercy West, they agreed to rename it “Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital” in honor of Lexi and Mark, and so the Seattle Grace was renamed.
According to TV Line, after their death, creator Shonda Rhimes reflected on the couple’s love story: “…it is [Mark] And Lexi will be together somehow. His love is still real.”
Grey’s Anatomy, which tracks the personal and professional lives of doctors at Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital in Seattle, returns for season 19 on Thursday, October 6, 2022.
