RICHLAND -- Kadlec Regional Medical Center officials announced Wednesday
that patients are being notified that one of the hospital's computer
servers containing brain scan and other patient studies was hacked in

Files housed on the server included information with 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 Nov. 11, according to a news

Kadlec immediately removed the server from service and hired a national
company that specializes in computer security to investigate the cause
of the incident and scope of the breach.
