APPLE VALLEY, MN— Allina Health announced Friday in a news release that hackers stole personal information of patients in its Apple Valley clinic.
The clinic was notified in December by Netgain Technology LLC, the contractor that hosts Allina’s information technology network and computer systems, that the systems had been compromised by a cybersecurity attack, the clinic said.
Among the stolen data was:
- Dates of birth
- Social security numbers
- Bank account and routing numbers
- Patient billing information
- Medical information (symptoms and diagnosis)
No other Allina Health clinics were impacted by the hacking, the clinic said.
Allina Health is currently in the process of contacting patients who may have been affected, the clinic said.
Allina is offering identity theft protection services to patients at the Apple Valley clinic, and those affected can call 833-978-2828 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning March 29, the clinic said.
In February, Allina began moving its information to a new system, the clinic said.
