A laptop containing the personal information of approximately 8,500 South Jersey Healthcare patients and others at two out-of-state facilities has been reported stolen, hospital officials said Wednesday. The laptop also contained information about patients from healthcare facilities in Michigan and Virginia. The incident affected only certain patients treated at South Jersey Healthcare, 99 percent of whom were either treated or scheduled for admission at the health system's hospitals between June 1, 2012 and Nov. 12, 2012.
