Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, Hudson, Fla., said it suspended nine of its 25 cardiologists' privileges to perform interventional cardiac procedures Wednesday after an independent review raised questions about the doctors' use of medications, devices or record-keeping. The findings of the independent review are preliminary so far, and the hospital will undertake its own analysis of the doctors' records, said Kurt Conover, Regional Medical's spokesman. Conover said the names of the nine doctors are confidential under peer-review laws. -- by Melanie Evans
