Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush Hospital, possible data breach of Patients data

Nearly 1,300 patients are being warned after there was unauthorized access to a physician's personal email account at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.

The compromised data may include patient names and surgical data, but the hospital says no social security or credit card numbers were compromised.

The breach happened in early February.

Midwest Orthopaedics has mailed letters to 1,256 patients affected.
