St. Luke’s emergency room pact terminated

St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford terminated the group that has provided its emergency room care for 12 years and is negotiating with physicians from Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to take over the contract, according to people briefed on the talks.

St. Luke’s owner, Southcoast Hospitals Group, and the St. Luke’s Emergency Associates jointly agreed to end the contract on Jan. 16, the hospital said in a statement last week.
