Mesa (AZ) hospital missing data files for more than 2,200 patients



Mountain Vista Medical Center is changing its security procedures as the search for missing records for 2,284 endoscopy patients continues.

The hospital discovered the compact memory data cards from endoscopy procedures from January of 2008 to October of this year were missing on Oct. 13 of this year, beginning a thorough investigation to find the missing records that contain personal patient information.

"Information security and patient privacy are top priorities," hospital CEO Tony Marinello said. "We deeply regret the inconvenience this has caused and will do everything we can to help those who may have been affected."
