Jesse Sallander

Senior Nurse

Jesse oversees the new residents and takes his job very seriously. With a nurturing and affable—but no-nonsense—presence, he's known as "Mama" around the ER. He manages to keep an eye on everything unfolding and somehow knows where he’s needed before he’s even summoned. Jesse is Leanne’s best friend and the closest thing she has to family.

Dr. Leanne Rorish

ER Residency Director

Known as "Daddy" to her residents, Leanne isn't afraid to make aggressive or unconventional decisions. Her respect is hard won. A natural teacher who leads by example and tough love, she expects the best from those she believes in and is ready to weed out the rest. A painful personal history fuels her to be the best doctor she can be.

Dr. Neal Hudson

Attending Physician

A highly skilled surgeon who likes to play by the rules, Neal is also handsome, smart, and charming—the perfect catch. As a former resident of Leanne's, he respects her deeply but often disagrees with some of the risks she takes. Still, the two share a rich friendship and connection - and neither one can resist a medical adventure together.

Dr. Rollie Guthrie

Attending Physician

The longest-serving attending at Angels Memorial ER, Rollie claims he’s been there since they were knocking out patients with bourbon. Gifted at connecting with patients and doctors alike, he enjoys taking people under his wing, often guiding them with meaningful anecdotes that illuminate complicated situations.

Christa Lorenson


A former soccer mom whose young son died of cancer, Christa became an expert on everything there was to learn about the disease. As the oldest resident, her intuition and life experience serve her extremely well in her practice. She is always going above and beyond to attend to her patients’ emotional needs, as well as their medical ones.

Malaya Pineda


A natural detective, Malaya is a doctor who needs proof. Her biggest challenge is acknowledging that the numbers don’t always tell the whole story - and that you don’t always have time to run the tests. Naturally cool, calm, and collected, Malaya is highly ambitious, but never at the expense of others.

Mario Savetti


Mario has top-of-the-game medical skills, but could use a little help with his people skills. He grew up in a tough neighborhood and worked second jobs to pay for medical school. Mario has boundless energy and plays to win. Because he’s only ever relied on himself, Mario has a few lessons to learn about teamwork.

Angus Leighton


Angus is a former psychology major still fascinated by the intricacies of human behavior. He has terrific instincts but needs the confidence to trust them. Approachable, loyal, and, at times, endearingly wet behind the ears, Angus invests in relationships both with his patients and with his fellow residents.
