WA: HACKED: Kadlec notifying patients of computer server breach

From the staff of Tri-City Herald:

Kadlec Regional Medical Center officials announced today that patients are being notified that one of the hospital’s computer servers containing brain scan and other patient studies was hacked in September.

Files housed on the server included information including a patient’s name, birth date, age, gender, medical record number and doctor’s name, but did not include any patient financial information, address, social security number or insurance data.

Kadlec officials first discovered the unauthorized access during routine monitoring of computer network backups on Nov. 11, according to a news release.
