One of General Hospital‘s docs is clocking out.
Jason Thompson, who plays Dr. Patrick Drake, is leaving the ABC daytime soap after 10 years, the actor announced Friday on Instagram.
“It was not an easy decision but I feel like it’s time to hang up Dr. Patrick Drake’s white coat and scrubs,” the actor wrote, giving thanks to his bosses and the fans who “changed my life.”

X..I'm speechless..but I will say this :) 10 years ago when I walked onto the GH set I was told I had "13 weeks to see if it works out.." Yes it's hard work, commitment and passion for what I am so grateful to do. But truly, it's people like YOU who have gone out of their way to support not only myself but fellow actors and artist. We are all fans..I am eternally thankful I am among you.
