Chicago Med Wiki

Template:Infobox character Margaret "Maggie" Campbell (née Lockwood) is a charge nurse in the Emergency Department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. She is portrayed by Marlyne Barrett.


Maggie's mother was a midwife and she grew up around medical settings. She has a sister, Denise Lockwood, and another unnamed sibling. When she was 16, Maggie gave up her daughter believing herself to be unfit to be a parent, (Vanessa Taylor). She slowly regretted her choice over the twenty years that followed.

She once took her niece to a Justin Bieber concert. She has a cousin who is a contractor.


Maggie is extremely dedicated to her job and loyal to those who work under her, but she runs the department with a no-nonsense attitude.

Season One


Maggie coordinates the treatment of an influx of victims from an elevated train derailment. At the end of the episode, she and April are seen putting together a crib for their pregnant widow colleague Natalie.


An injured drunk driver is brought into the ED, along with the police officer he hit. The partner of the police officer demands Dr. Rhodes draw a blood-alcohol sample before he goes up to surgery. Connor asks for the patient's consent as per hospital policy, but he refuses. Maggie tells the officer that they are in the business of saving lives and Connor takes the patient up to surgery. The police officer then places Maggie under arrest for obstruction of justice.

Later, Maggie is released on bail and Connor picks her up. In the car they discuss how the justice system is unfair.

Season Two

Natural History

Maggie's sister Denise briefly loses her vision and has a car accident. Dr. Halstead informs her that she has prostate cancer, revealing that Denise is a transgender woman and that she elected not to have her prostate removed.

Denise and Maggie bond during the episode and work through some of their issues. Maggie misses her brother but accepts Denise the way she is now.

Mirror Mirror

The officer who arrested her in Guilty is brought in with severe injuries. Maggie is cautious over her approach, especially as the officer's husband and other police officers do not want her near her after the arrest. Seargent Platt asks Ms. Goowin to keep Maggie away. However, Maggie refuses, saying that she won't let this interfere with how she works but April ultimately takes over. As an organ donor, the officer is kept on life support until the compatible recipients are found. The husband eventually shows up before his wife is taken to surgery and taken off life support with a necklace that belonged to her, Maggie tells him he can stay with his wife through surgery. Maggie convinces Goodwin and the patient's husband to let her back on her case, so she can get closure.

Season Five

Never Going Back To Normal

Following donation of her kidney to a woman who then developed cancer, Maggie gets a mammogram and learns that she has metastatic adenocarcinoma. She needs further tests to see where the cancer has spread to, as well as a lumpectomy with chemo and/or radiation, or else a mastectomy.

We're Lost In The Dark

Maggie has her first round of chemotherapy at East Mercy. She returns to work, explaining away her absence as a vacation. She guides the fire department paramedics who are called in after a power outage and re-organizes patients already in the ED. Sharon advises her to pace herself. When Will orders one of his patients to be isolated because of a possible infectious disease, Sharon orders her to remove herself from the case due to her being immunocompromised from her chemotherapy, but she refuses. She eventually becomes unwell from overstretching herself, but is able to recover.

In the Valley of the Shadows

Maggie continues to push herself beyond her limit and takes it out on her new pupil Paula who has been assigned to shadow her. Paula is eventually driven to quit, and after pressure from Goodwin she decides to start training April as her second in command. Sharon also convinces her to continue her cancer treatment at Gaffney, saying she will receive better care than at East Mercy.

Infection: Part II

Maggie is sent home by Sharon, who does not want her around when multiple patients suffering from the flesh-eating bacteria are brought in due to Maggie being immunocompromised.

Got a Friend in Me
