TX: Hunt Regional Medical Partners Family Practice at Westlake notifies patients that records were stolen from warehouse

Hunt Regional Medical Partners Family Practice at Westlake is notifying patients that a warehouse storing patient records was vandalized January 16-17, 2015.

According to a statement on their site, the intruders had access to an area that houses the records for Westlake Medical Center patients seen prior to 2010. These records may have included health information, address records and social security numbers.

In response to the breach, Hunt Regional Medical Partners worked closely with the Sheriff’s Department to investigate the incident and relocated the records.

HRMP is offering affected patients credit monitoring services and support for one year from AllClear ID Alert Network.

The breach was reported to HHS on February 18 as impacting 3,000 patients.
