What Happened at Proliance Surgeons?

Proliance Surgeons allegedly experienced a cyberattack that affected certain systems on their network. Systems and files were encrypted, and unauthorized access resulted in the theft of a number of files. The company started an investigation with the help of third-party cybersecurity professionals.

Proliance concluded on May 24, 2023 that additional files may have contained personal information, and may have been accessed by an unauthorized party on or around February 11, 2023. The information involved includes names, date of birth, Social Security number, medical treatment information, health insurance information, phone number, email address, financial account number, driver license or other identification information, and usernames and passwords.

The company has begun notifying impacted individuals about the incident with specific details about what personal data may have been stolen. Anyone who is contacted is urged to remain vigilant and look for signs of medical identity theft and fraud.
