'''St. Sebastian Hospital''' is a hospital in Los Angeles where Jack Shephard and his father, Christian Shephard, worked as spinal surgeons.

At various times, Adam Rutherford, Sarah Shephard, John Locke, Omer Jarrah (flash-sideways timeline), and Sun-Hwa Paik (flash-sideways timeline).

==History==

In 2001, Adam Rutherford, and Sarah Shephard were taken to St. Sebastian after their Car Accident. Jack Shephard chose to save Sarah over Adam, as Adam's case was hopeless. Adam was pronounced dead at 815 am. Jack's father, Christian Shephard, was Chief of Surgery at that time. {{crossref}} Adam's daughter, Shannon Rutherford, and his wife and Shannon's stepmother, Sabrina Carlyle, later met at the hospital after having learned about Adam's death. {{crossref}} A short time later, Jack operated on Sarah and miraculously restored her ability to walk. {{crossref}}

Several years later, Angelo Busoni, who had an inoperable spinal tumor, chose St. Sebastian for his operation. He specifically asked to be operated on by Jack. His daughter, Gabriela Busoni, accompanied him. Even though the situation was hopeless, Jack decided to operate anyway, but Angelo died on the operating table. {{crossref}}

In July 2004, Christian Shephard (who was a longtime alcoholic) fatally botched a surgery on a woman named Beth (hospital). Even though he attempted to get Jack to help him cover it up, Jack reported his father, which resulted in Christian losing his position at St. Sebastian. {{crossref}}

Following his return from the Island, Jack continued to work at St. Sebastian. In early September 2007, he was preparing for a surgery on a patient named Ms. Berenberg when he started seeing his dead father. {{crossref}} This eventually caused him to start drinking and becoming addicted to pills. After having saved a woman, Mrs. Arlen, from a burning car wreckage (who had in fact crashed her car when she saw Jack trying to commit suicide), Jack insisted on operating on her, but the new Chief of Surgery at St. Sebastian, Dr. Hamill, relieved Jack of his duties, realizing his heavy substance abuse. {{crossref}}

A few days later, David Reyes brought a heavily tranquilized Sayid Jarrah to Jack, who in turn brought Sayid to St. Sebastian. Despite being suspended from work, Jack successfully treated Sayid, causing him to wake up. {{crossref}} Shortly after, the Chief of Clinical Services, Evelyn Ariza, called Jack and reminded him that he had been suspended from work. In the meantime, an Tony (The Little Prince), but was successfully overpowered by Sayid just as Jack and Ben Linus entered Sayid's hospital room. Subsequently, the three left St. Sebastian. {{crossref}}

St. Sebastian appears to be within driving distance of the stadium where Jack and Desmond first met, since Jack goes there to run the steps after his frustration with Sarah's surgery. {{crossref}}

==Trivia==
* According to legend, http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Sebastian St. Sebastian was martyred by being tied to a tree or post and shot with arrow (the arrow being his attribute). He is the patron saint of soldiers and youth, among other things. He is also a protector from the plague. {{Crossref}}
** The arrow is also strongly associated with Apollo, the god of healing, and it is in St. Sebastian that Jacob hands Jack an Apollo Candy Bar. {{Crossref}}
