Miller & Martin hires health care attorney

Dismembered office begins rebuild with Virginia transplant, former Ardent and CHS employee

Miller & Martin has hired a health care attorney to lead its local practice group, in a move to rebuild after a 2012 that saw the vast majority of its downtown team leave for other firms.

Susan Steelman has joined Miller & Martin from Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters Health System in Norfolk, Va. There, she served as director of loss prevention and regulatory matters. Before that, she was associate general counsel at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, assistant general counsel at Ardent Health Services and associate GC at Community Health Systems.

“The healthcare market in Nashville remains a key part of our ongoing growth strategy, and the addition of Susan to the Nashville office positions us to expand our services,” said Miller & Martin Chairman James Haley. “She has exceptional credentials and experience along with a keen understanding of this city’s healthcare market.”
