Memorial Hospital is offering free credit monitoring and identify protection services to a “limited number” of patients whose Social Security numbers, health-insurance information and other personal details were part of an employee email account that a third party accessed.

Janet Stuart, the hospital’s manager of marketing and communications, said the email account contained information on about 30,000 patients, including names, birth dates, medical care and health-insurance information. Social Security numbers were listed for a “limited number” of those patients, a news release said.
