A security breach at St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital may have put the records of 1,800 patients at risk.
Hospital officials said they learned in November that certain associate e-mail accounts were breached, which may have allowed patient names, dates of service and certain clinical information to be accessed.
Those patients were sent a letter from hospital officials informing them of actions by a third party to inappropriately obtain e-mail log-ins.

In 2007, St. Vincent had another breach when its subcontractor, Verus, did not reinstall a firewall after an update to its online payment system. In that breach, 51,000 patients were notified of the possible exposure of their information.
