The second-largest healthcare breach of 2018 and the largest breach to hit New York state since the breach of more than 3.4 million records of Newkirk Products in 2016.
In January 2018, the hospital reported that it discovered a data breach of 134,512 individuals after a third party gained access to the hospitals servers. The compromised information includes patient names, dates of birth, addresses, dates of service, diagnosis codes, procedure codes, insurance information, and, for those with Medicare, Social Security numbers. No banking or credit card information was involved.
The hospital sent letters notifying patients of the data breach and offered the Medicare patients one free year of credit monitoring.
