Posted at 1:30 PM, Oct 11, 2017

Las Vegas hospitals are showing their commitment to the #VegasStrong movement by helping the victims of the Route 91 mass shooting with their medical cost.

Several Las Vegas hospitals took in victims during the tragic event without knowledge of insurance or finances, as they should, and now at least one Las Vegas of those hospitals is swallowing the bill.

St. Rose Dominican says they won't require any payment from any of the victims, but they are collecting donations from the community.

Other hospitals have also made a commitment to work the victims of the Oct. 1 shooting. University Medical Center says they're working to collect donations, while Sunrise Hospital says they're still working to take care of patients needs and will be extremely sensitive to the financial status of the victims.
