Thousands of patients at a Kern County health clinic have been warned their personal information could have been stolen. A break-in happened at the Sagebrush Medical Plaza in July, and Kern Medical Center officials have notified 31,000 patients to take precautions against possible identity theft. One or more unknown individuals broke into a locked storage area that contained confidential patient information. All patient information has now been moved to a location inside the clinic building.
