“The show will kick off its anniversary programming on Wednesday, March 29, with a special episode honoring the late Sonya Eddy, who played ‘GH’ head nurse Epiphany Johnson on the series starting in 2006,” says a show promoter.

Starting the week of April 3, promoters say the Nurses Ball will return. This fictional glamorous charity event features red-carpet fashion and musical performances from the illustrious citizens of Port Charles dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness.

This marks the first time the Nurses Ball has aired since 2020. General Hospital celebrates its 60th anniversary on April 1, 2023.
