Fisher Plaza, which houses Seattle's ABC affiliate KOMO-TV, is used for some exterior shots of Seattle Grace Hospital. In the pilot episode when the patient is flown in via helicopter, you can see the KOMO 4 logo on the side of the building, and their 10+ satellite dishes on the roof. Fisher Plaza puts Seattle Grace conveniently close to the Space Needle, the Seattle Monorail, and other local landmarks. However, the hospital used for most other exterior, and many interior shots is not in Seattle. These scenes are shot at the VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center in North Hills, California. See more
