About 1,000 patients at Penn Medicine are receiving letters saying a computer with some of their personal information on it was stolen.

 

A laptop containing patient files was reported stolen from a car at the King of Prussia Mall parking lot on Nov. 30, according to a spokesperson at the University of Pennsylvania Health System. So far,  there is no indication the computer has been turned on or the patient information accessed, they stated.

Patient names, birth dates, medical records, account numbers, and some other demographic and medical information were on the computer.  There were no Social Security numbers, credit card or bank account information, patient addresses or telephone numbers stolen, according to Penn Medicine.

 

Patients with questions can contact the Penn Medicine Incident Response Line at 1-833-214-8740.
