Gloria Akalitus is the by-the-book Administrator for All Saints Hospital. She keeps the hospital together and running smoothly. Sharp and attuned (or so she thinks), there's not a move in the repertoire that she hasn't seen. She is portrayed by Anna Deveare Smith.
After being stripped of her duties when All Saints was bought out, she has recently been reinstated. She's been at All Saints for over 30 years. During season 5 after being reinstated she begins to show signs of forgetfulness and confusion which leads her coworkers to believe she may be showing early signs of Alzheimer’s but alas Eddie & Jackie come to the conclusion that it’s a new medication she was on.
