BJC HealthCare Data Breach Investigation

The Lyon Firm is actively involved in personal privacy and healthcare data theft cases and is currently investigating BJC HealthCare data breach claims on behalf of plaintiffs in Missouri and nationwide.

BJC HealthCare, a Missouri non-profit healthcare organization, has begun notifying patients that some of their protected health information may have been leaked.

On March 29, 2022, BJC learned that email accounts belonging to physicians and resident physicians were subject to unauthorized access in a data theft incident. An investigation confirmed the unauthorized access occurred between March 4, 2022, and March 28, 2022, but the full scope of the incident is still under investigation.

Which St. Louis Hospitals Were Impacted?

The BJC data security incident did not affect all BJC-affiliated hospitals and patients, but rather only those patients whose information was included in the stolen email accounts. The affiliated hospitals may include:

  • Alton Memorial Hospital
  • Missouri Baptist Medical Center
