Security Breach Impacts Local Hospital

Still0819_00001SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A security breach impacting millions of people across the country could affect some hospital patients in Springfield.

Community Health Systems said hackers stole patient names, social security numbers, addresses, and phone numbers.

This affects McKenzie Willamette Medical Center patients who’ve received treatment in the last five years at the Heart Associations of Oregon, McKenzie Primary Care Associates, and Summit Surgical Specialists.

Community Health issued a statement saying, “We take very seriously the security and confidentiality of private patient information and we sincerely regret any concern or inconvenience to patients. Though we have no reason to believe that this data would ever be used, all affected patients are being notified by letter and offered free identity and theft protection.”
