(AP) — A Statesville hospital is warning patients that their credit card numbers and other personal information might have been compromised.
The Charlotte Observer reported that Piedmont HealthCare has told the patients that unauthorized access was gained to the servers of website hosting company E-dreamz.
The hospital said the access might also have been breached job applicant data on the servers, including Social Security numbers.
Chief Financial Officer Gregory Guin says no hospital computer systems were affected, so no medical information was accessed.
Piedmont HealthCare is providing free identity monitoring and restoration services to patients affected by the breach.
The hospital said it has contacted the FBI, the North Carolina Attorney General's Office and other agencies, as well as credit reporting companies.
The company says it is changing its website hosting.
