Zach MillerE.R. Dr. Zach Miller continues to head up the busy frontlines of Hope Zion Hospital with his focused, “treat ‘em and street ‘em” attitude. Zach takes pride in getting patients the care they need as quickly as they come in, but he will have to take pains this season to avoid neglecting his roles at home as both a father to his sons, as well as, the boyfriend of Hope Zion’s ICU doctor, Melanda Tolliver (Glenda Braganza). Something of a rock amidst the tumultuous waves of the Hope Zion E.R., Season 3 finds Zach continuing to weather the storm.
