Penrose investigates missing patient files

Penrose-St. Francis Health Services has launched an investigation into missing patient information.

The information included demographic and medical information for patients who visited the hospital during August and September. No full medical records were reported missing, and all the information came from the ultrasound department.

The hospital system has also notified the Colorado Springs Police Department and the federal Office for Civil Rights.

Patients whose information is missing have been offered a free service with Kroll, a New York-based risk consulting firm and a global leader in data security that offers a package for identity protection.
