KADLEC REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER DATA BREACH
Kadlec Regional Medical Center officials announced Wednesday that patients are being notified that one of the hospital’s computer servers containing brain scan and other patient studies was hacked in September. Files housed on the server included information with a patient’s name, birth date, age, gender, medical record number and doctor’s name, but did not include any patient financial information, address, Social Security number or insurance data.
Kadlec officials first discovered the unauthorized access during routine monitoring of computer network backups Nov. 11, according to a news release. Kadlec purportedly removed the server from service and hired a national computer security company to investigate the cause of the incident and scope of the breach.
