Avamere’s full notification can be found on their website.

Both Infinity Rehab and Avamere are offering those affected complimentary credit monitoring as well as advice on how to protect oneself.

Whether there are any other clients of Avamere who will also issue their own notification remains to be seen.  DataBreaches has not seen this breach listed on any dark web leak sites, but will continue to monitor sites to see if any data shows up.

Update: Post-publication, DataBreaches discovered that the April note was because of a mention on a dedicated leak site associated with a ransomware group. In checking back on that site now, we see that they wound up dumping data from Avamere that included employee information and patient information.

Update2 (Aug.16):  Multicare in Washington revealed that 18,615 patients were affected by Avamere’s breach. Avamare’s notification (above) was not on behalf of Multicare. King5 reports that Avamere provides contracted services to Physicians of Southwest Washington, which is a joint venture and business associate of MultiCare.
