The information includes last names, assigned medical record numbers, dates of birth, gestational ages, birth weights, dates of hospitalizations, and in some cases, transfer dates of the children who were patients at either Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children or Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies between 2009 and 2013.
