A cyberattack has resulted in a large amount of deleted data belonging to patients San Juan Regional Medical Center in New Mexico. According to officials, an unauthorized individual breached the network of San Juan Regional Medical Center in September 2020.

The hack was reported to the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights on June 4 as a network server security incident impacting over 68,000 individuals.

The Lyon Firm is currently involved in a number of class action data breach lawsuits, representing plaintiffs nationwide. If you have had your data stolen, contact Joe Lyon for a free and confidential consultation.

In a statement released on October 7, the hospital said the following:

“After an extensive forensic investigation, we determined that as part of this incident, an unauthorized individual removed information from our network September 7–8, 2020.”

Files reportedly contained personal and protected health information of certain patients, including the following:

  • Names
  • Dates of birth
  • Social Security numbers
  • Driver’s license numbers
  • Passport information
  • Financial account numbers
  • Health insurance information
  • Medical information (diagnosis, treatment, medical record number, patient account number)

When personal data is stolen, it may be sold and later misused, placing victims at significant risk of fraud and identity theft. Medical data theft has become big business and individuals expect healthcare entities to protect their personal information.

When hospitals like San Juan Medical fail to protect your data, legal action may be necessary to recover rightful compensation.
