Yen Press publishes Soji Sato's original manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Mochizuki General Hospital boasts some of the most well-trained (and well-endowed) nurses in town. But though these ladies spend much of their day battling disease, their after-hours are spent fighting a very different sort of sickness... Under the leadership of the hospital chairman, a handful of staff members and local teenagers form a group of mercenary assassins, targeting the "cancers" of society and excising those individuals before their wickedness spreads.
Saeko Zōgō (Isuca, Maken-Ki! Battling Venus, Chaika - The Coffin Princess, Dai - Shogun - Great Revolution ending themes) featuring Nagareda Project (Dragon Collection, Saint Seiya Omega) will provide the show's opening theme, titled "triage."
