On September 6, X-ray films were stolen from the Hospital by thieves posing as representatives of an X-ray recycling vendor.  The thieves were most likely looking to strip the silver from the old films.  If any information had been taken from the X-rays it would include patient names, gender, dates of birth, dates of services, medical record numbers, and areas x-rayed.
