WA: UW medical records compromised

Mimi Jung reports:

An alarming letter was sent to Charles Tomaras from the UW (University of Washington) Medical Center letting him know that someone had stolen his personal information, including his Social Security number, credit card number, birthdate and address….. The hospital says the information of up to 210 people could be compromised and thought a letter “was the best way to get the information out to the largest number of people.”

KING 5 sources tell us the UW Medical Center learned of the theft after King County sheriffs found the personal information inside the home of a convicted felon who was being arrested for violating parole.

The man’s girlfriend works for NCO Financial Systems, a company the medical center uses to process patient payments.
