Free Credit Monitoring Available for WV Health Consumers Impacted by Breach
Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - 20:47 From a News Release by WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey
The company has said the information accessed was non-medical patient identification data related to Community Health Systems' physician practice operations, so the breach affected only clinics and physicians' offices, and not the hospitals directly. Additionally, the company said no medical, health, or financial information was stored on the data servers that were breached in the attack.
The following clinics were affected:
- Oak Hill Clinic Corp.
- Oak Hill Hospital Corp.
- Bluefield Clinic Company, LLC
- Greenbrier Valley Anesthesia, LLC
- Greenbrier Valley Emergency Physicians
- Ronceverte Physician Group
“Our Office is committed to working with other states that were affected by this breach, and we will vigorously protect the consumers of West Virginia from any threat to their personal information,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “Any patient who received treatment at any of these offices in the last five years should contact the company and take advantage of any identity theft protection it offers. We will continue to update consumers on this important issue.”
