The hospital on Nurse Jackie is about to get a whole lot sexier: Bobby Cannavale will appear as a special guest star in the fourth season of the Showtime comedy.

The Emmy and Tony award winner will play a hospital administrator sent by a conglomerate that buys the beleaguered All Saint’s Hospital. Cannavale’s character will show up to “improve the hospital’s efficiency and profitability,” and probably speed up a few pulses along the way. He’ll appear in all 10 episodes.

Production on season four begins in September in New York for a 2012 premiere.

Cannavale’s other TV credits include Six Feet Under, Cupid and Will & Grace.
