LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Las Vegas-area hospital criticized for shuttling patients among facilities purely for financial reasons is dropping the medical group that staffs its emergency departments.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that St. Rose Dominican Hospitals in Henderson is ending its relationship with Emergency Medicine Physicians effective July 15.

The newspapers says the move comes just days after state regulators interviewed emergency room staff about the patient-transfer policies.

St. Rose spokeswoman Kate Grey says it was a business decision on the part of hospital and "no reflection" on the company's physicians. She says the search is on for a replacement medical group to handle emergency room patients.

Former ER doctors at St. Rose claim in lawsuits the money-saving transfer of patients was unnecessary and put their safety at risk.
