RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Hospital officials in Vermont say more than 72,000 people may have had their information affected during a recent data breach.

Rutland Regional Medical Center CEO Claudio Fort says information pertaining to 72,224 patients may have been stolen as well as almost 4,000 Social Security numbers. The Rutland Herald reports staff members at the hospital have not received any reports that personal information has been misused.

Officials at the health care system don’t know what, if any, specific information was actually accessed, viewed or acquired.
