Sutter Health Reports Data Breach Following Drug Bust
Sutter Health has notified more than 4,500 patients who visited medical centers in Antioch, Castro Valley or Oakland about the possibility that their personal data have been compromised. Last month, narcotics investigators found personal patient information during a methamphetamine bust in Oakland. Stacey Wells -- a Sutter Health spokesperson -- said that officials cannot yet disclose how or where the information was obtained because of the ongoing investigation.
