Ohmyn0Added by Ohmyn0

Ben Sullivan is Jordan Sullivan's brother and despite Dr. Cox having divorced his sister, he and Cox are very close. He is an avid photographer, but dislikes staged photographs, as he says they are not natural, preferring to take candid shots.

Upon a visit to Sacred Heart due to a board that got nailed through his hand, Dr. Cox and J.D. diagnosed Ben with leukemia. J.D. didn't want to believe the news so he retraced his steps, but no matter how many times he re-ran the tests, they all came back positive for leukemia and he had to break the news to Ben and Perry. ("My Occurrence")

J.D. thought Ben was depressed at learning he had leukemia when he couldn't find him in his room, but he was found playing with the children in the pediatric ward. Dr. Cox remained optimistic of Ben's condition, and enrolled Dr. Zeltzer, Sacred Heart's best oncologist, to start Ben on chemotherapy immediately. Ben went through his first chemo session with Jordan by his side, and J.D. tried to confront Perry to support his friend. In the end, Dr. Cox was supporting Ben before J.D. could find him to chew him out. ("My Hero")

Upon returning for Jack's first birthday about 2 years later, it was discovered that Ben had failed to have his leukemia checked up on, and he passed away due to cardiac arrest. Once Perry was notified of his death, he had taken it poorly and blatantly blamed J.D. for Ben's passing. Bitter from the news, he refused to acknowledge that Ben had actually died which resulted in him imagining Ben following him around the hospital. At Ben's funeral, Perry finally accepts that Ben has passed on and mourned him with J.D., Jordan and Danni. ("My Screw Up")

Jordan and DanniEdit

As their brother, he had a good relationship with Jordan and Danni, even joking to have slept with each of them. When Perry Cox and Jordan got divorced Ben was forced to choose between the two, which Cox later apologizes for and Ben tells him not to flatter himself.

Dr. CoxEdit

Perry Cox and Ben had a very good friendship, Cox calling Ben his best friend. Perry struggled initially with the thought of losing Ben because they are such good friends, and couldn't sit through his chemotherapy sessions. They can go a long time without seeing each other. Even though Dr. Cox hated Jordan, he was still close to Ben. Perry was just extremely distraught when Ben passed away.
