Seattle Grace certainly is changing, but is it for the better or worse?

Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy, in which potential buyer Pegasus Horizons toured the hospital, proved that things will not get better with an outside owner. In fact, seeing how a different Pegasus-owned hospital does business gave us a glimpse at a very grim future for Seattle Grace. Check out how the hospital changed this week:

Brand Ambassador: With Pegasus Horizons set to buy the hospital, they're looking for one of the doctors to be the face of Seattle Grace on brochures and posters. Alex and Jackson go to great lengths to compete for the position, but Derek ultimately wins.

Ride-along: April, bored with the lack of trauma cases since the ER closed, goes on a ride-along with her new boyfriend Matt. But when a hit-and-run victim is going to be diverted an hour away, April enlists Jackson's help to secretly bring the patient to Seattle Grace. All the doctors work together to save the child, but once Cahill discovers the truth, they're all chastised since this stunt could've ruined the hospital's chances at being bought by Pegasus.

Undercover: In order to do reconnaissance on another hospital that was bought by Pegasus Horizons, Callie and Webber go undercover as the married couple Mr. and Mrs. Plantain. With Richard pretending to be a patient, the duo discovers that this hospital pushes patients through like it's a fast food restaurant. Webber ultimately feels defeated and considers whether or not to just take an early retirement in the face of such a bleak future with Pegasus. But Callie wants to fight it, so she proposes to the group to buy the hospital.

Are you happy the doctors are going to try to buy the hospital?
