  • Matthew Proctor was a former GI doctor in an independent practice in Maryland. He moved to Miami after an accident prompted him to reconsider the direction of his life. He was portrayed by Jeremy Northam.
  • Eva Zambrano was assumed to be the next Chief of Trauma, but was superseded unexpectedly by Dr. Proctor. Her father was a trauma surgeon in Cuba, but when they defected on a raft when Zambrano was 6, he had to quit and focus on being a father instead, using this an excuse to excuse him from starting over as a Resident, which his ego would not allow. Dr. Zambrano's mother died upon arrival in the United States. She was portrayed by Lana Parrilla.
  • Serena Warren was a resident on the trauma surgery service, she was often portrayed as naive and inexperienced. She mentions in one episode that she is a little claustrophobic since her brother locked her in a trunk when they were kids. She was shown in Season 1, Episode 9 (Like a Hurricane) to have difficulty giving bad news to patients. Additionally, in Season 1, Episode 10 (Diver Down), she showed her claustrophobian side again when she was locked in the hyperbaric chamber with two scuba diving patients critically injured and had to use her latex glove to help her not hyperventilate from anxiety over the confined space of the chamber. She was played by Elisabeth Harnois.
  • Chris Deleo was vying for the promotion to Trauma Chief, despite the fact that Eva was 3 years his senior, but both of them were unexpectedly superseded by Matt Proctor. Chris has worked in Trauma for 2 and a half years, and has a brother named Rick, who has free-loaded off Chris since they were young. Rick was revealed to have Cancer and told Eva to tell Chris. Rick later paid back all his debts to Chris, but Chris ripped up the check, saying that his brother would only pay back the money if he thought he was going to die. Following his final treatment at Miami Trauma Rick left the hospital bill for Chris to pay for his care. He was played by Mike Vogel.
  • Tuck Brody was the only regular nurse on the show. He is often shown as being a vital member of the Trauma team and assists in the humanity of the series, giving social support to the patients, families, and trauma team doctors. He was portrayed by Omar Gooding.
