Marian Regional Medical Center Experiences Data Breach

Santa Maria, Cal.-based Marian Regional Medical Center, part of San Francisco-based Dignity Health, has notified patients their personal health information had been compromised.

The data breach occurred when an electronic file containing patients' information was sent to the wrong insurance provider.

The information contained in the electronic file included patients' names, addresses, types of insurance, dates of birth, dates of services, types of laboratory tests and test results.

Patients who were treated at the medical center's facilities between March 1 and March 6 could have been affected by the data breach.
