MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach

Susan Herman provides oversight for nursing clinical care areas at Miller Children’s & Women’s and the nearly 1,000 registered nurses who practice within those areas.

Herman has spent the last 18 months overseeing the opening of the Children’s Village, which is the only building of its kind in LA County with a one-stop-shop approach to outpatient specialty care for kids.
