SERV Behavioral Health System Inc. announced Sept. 9 that it experienced a data breach that may have affected individuals’ personal information.
The Ewing Township health care system said it discovered suspicious activity related to its computer network May 27. SERV said it immediately took action to secure its systems and launched an investigation with third-party computer forensic specialists.
The company said it completed its review Aug. 4 and that even though there was no evidence that an unauthorized user viewed or acquired information, it could not rule out that possibility. The health care system said it released the notice “out of an abundance of caution.”
SERV said the information affected included names, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, medical/health information and contact information.
In addition to the investigation, SERV said it also notified regulators, including the Department of Health and Human Services.
Those who have questions or would like additional information may call SERV’s assistance line at (833) 420-2860, between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET on weekends, excluding major U.S. holidays.
SERV also advised patients to review their account statements and free credit reports for suspicious activity for the next 12 to 24 months. The three major credit reporting bureaus can be reached at:
