Two doctors who cared for an incapacitated woman who gave birth as a result of rape are no longer providing medical services at the long-term care center in Phoenix.

Hacienda HealthCare says Sunday that one has resigned. The other has been suspended.

The victim in her 20s had been in Hacienda's care since she became incapacitated at age 3 after suffering a near-drowning. She gave birth Dec. 29.

The incident triggered a police investigation and reviews by regulators. Investigators have gathered DNA from men who worked there.

Hacienda CEO Bill Timmons resigned after the news surfaced.
