Notification of Data Security Incident

03/21/2024 — On or around January 25, 2024, Lakeview Health Systems, LLC (“Lakeview Health”) discovered certain unusual activity within its computer systems. Upon discovery, Lakeview immediately secured its network, reset passwords, and engaged a third-party forensic firm to investigate the incident. The investigation remains ongoing; however, Lakeview has determined that a limited amount of patient information may have been impacted in connection with this incident.

The type of information contained within the affected data included patient names, addresses, dates of birth, medical record number, and medical treatment information. Importantly, the information potentially impacted may vary for each individual, and may include all, or just one, of the above-listed types of information.

At this time, Lakeview is not aware of any evidence to suggest that patient information has been misused. However, Lakeview has been unable to rule out the possibility that the patient information could have been accessed. Therefore, in an abundance of caution, Lakeview will be partnering with third-party computer forensic company to perform a thorough review of the affected information to identify, and subsequently notify all potentially affected individuals as required by law.

In response to this incident, Lakeview has implemented additional security measures within its network and facilities and is reviewing its current policies and procedures related to data security. Although Lakeview has no evidence of actual misuse of information as a result of this incident, patients are nonetheless encouraged to monitor their account statements and explanation of benefits forms for suspicious activity and to detect errors. Patients may also wish to contact the three major credit agencies to place a fraud alert on their credit report – the credit agencies’ contact information is: Equifax (888-378-4329); TransUnion (833-395-6938); and Experian (888-397-3472).

Monitor Your Accounts

We encourage you to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud by reviewing your credit reports/account statements and explanation of benefits forms for suspicious activity and to detect errors. Under U.S. law, you are entitled to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus, TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. To order your free credit report, visit or call 1-877-322-8228. Once you receive your credit report, review it for discrepancies and identify any accounts you did not open or inquiries from creditors that you did not authorize. If you have questions or notice incorrect information, contact the credit reporting bureau.

You have the right to place an initial or extended “fraud alert” on a credit file at no cost. An initial fraud alert is a one-year alert that is placed on a consumer’s credit file. Upon seeing a fraud alert, a business is required to take steps to verify the consumer’s identity before extending new credit. If you are a victim of identity theft, you are entitled to an extended fraud alert lasting seven years. Should you wish to place a fraud alert, please contact any of the three credit reporting bureaus listed below.

As an alternative to a fraud alert, you have the right to place a “credit freeze” on a credit report, which will prohibit a credit bureau from releasing information in the credit report without your express authorization. The credit freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent. However, you should be aware that using a credit freeze may delay, interfere with, or prohibit the timely approval of any subsequent request or application you make regarding a new loan, credit, mortgage, or any other account involving the extension of credit. Pursuant to federal law, you cannot be charged to place or lift a credit freeze on your credit report. To request a credit freeze, you will need to provide the following information:

  1. Full name (including middle initial as well as Jr., Sr., III, etc.);
  2. Social Security number;
  3. Date of birth;
  4. Address for the prior two to five years;
  5. Proof of current address, such as a current utility or telephone bill;
  6. A legible photocopy of a government-issued identification card (e.g., state driver’s license or identification card); and
  7. A copy of either the police report, investigative report, or complaint to a law enforcement agency concerning identity theft, if you are a victim of identity theft.
