The March 29 theft of an unknown number of x-ray films resulted in the exposure of protected health information.  Thieves were able to access the secured storage location that contained the old x-ray films.  These thefts usually occur for the purpose of extracting valuable precious metals from the films by destroying them.  Most of the information on the films was more than five years old.  It is unclear what type of patient information the x-ray films contained, but they did not include Social Security numbers. Notice of the breach was given on May 24.
