No connection suspected between computer burglaries at Advocate hospitals in Park Ridge, Downers Grove
DOWNERS GROVE – Police and hospital officials don't believe the theft of two computers from Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital this month in Downers Grove is connected to the theft of four computers last month from Advocate's administrative office in Park Ridge that contained personal information of 4 million patients.
The four computers stolen in Park Ridge on July 15 contain information of 4.03 million patients spanning the Advocate hospital network, including patients at Good Samaritan, according to Good Samaritan Spokesperson Lisa Parro.
The data on the Park Ridge computers includes names, addresses, dates of birth and Social Security numbers, according to Advocate Medical Group. The computers also housed limited clinical information, such as treating physicians and departments, diagnoses, medical record numbers, medical service codes, and health insurance data.
