Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Mission Community Hospital data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Mission Community Hospital recently notified individuals about a data security incident that occurred on May 1, 2023. The hospital discovered potential unauthorized access to its IT network and immediately launched an investigation with the assistance of a cybersecurity firm. During the investigation, it was determined that an unknown party had accessed files containing patient information, which may have included individuals' names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, financial account information, health insurance plan member IDs, claims data and clinical information.
According to DataBreaches.net, the breach was executed by notorious cybercriminal group RansomHouse, which claimed to have stolen 2.5 TB of data from the hospital and reportedly provided some proof of its claims. DataBreaches.net noted on June 4 that some of the stolen information was "already being leaked."
Mission Community Hospital, owned by Deanco Healthcare, LLC, is a two-campus acute care hospital located in California's San Fernando Valley.
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Mission Community Hospital to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
