Family Medical Center was among several healthcare operations nationwide that had patient information hacked by a cyber-criminal attack, hospital officials said.
Amanda Duforat, marketing director at Scenic Mountain Medical Center, said limited personal information â€” names, addresses, birthdates, telephone numbers and social security numbers â€” belonging to â€śsomeâ€ť patients seen at Family Medical during the past five years was hacked during the cyber-attack, believed to be orchestrated by a group in China in April and June.
The stolen information did not include any medical or credit card information, nor were any of SMMCâ€™s patient records hacked, Duforat said.
