Dr. Leanne Rorish
Leanne, the residency director of the Angels Memorial ER, is a force to be reckoned with. Known to her residents as "Daddy," she is an excellent, confident, quick-thinking doctor who is not afraid to make aggressive or unconventional decisions to save a patient. Leanne's inventive, "cowboy" techniques often bring her into conflict with fellow doctors, but her track record is solid and she never fails to impress. She is a natural teacher and leads by example, but respect from "Daddy" is hard won. She schools her residents with tough love, expects the best from those she believes in, and is ready to weed out any newbies who don’t exceed her expectations. A painful personal history fuels Leanne's need to be the best doctor she can be. While she thinks a doctor can (and should) separate emotion from the work, Leanne continually learns that may be easier said than done.
