HCMC Addresses Data Breach

MCG Health, a contracted third-party that Henry County Medical Center utilizes, recently reported they have experienced a data security breach.  MCG Health provides HCMC and many other healthcare providers and health plans with the latest information in patient care guidelines.

This breach did not affect HCMC computer systems.  However, because patient information is shared with MCG Health in the process of caring for our patients, some HCMC patients could be impacted by this breach.

MCG Health determined that an unauthorized party previously obtained personal information that matched data stored on MCG’s computer systems.  The personal information may include some or all of the following:  names, Social Security number, medical codes, postal addresses, telephone number, email addresses, dates of birth, and gender.

Those affected by this breach have or will be receiving a letter from MCG with further details.  In this letter, those affected will be offered identity protection and credit monitoring services for two years at no cost.

HCMC strongly encourages patients who receive this notice to take advantage of these services to ensure the safeguard of their personal information.

For questions regarding this notice, you may contact MCG Health’s call center:

1-866-475-7221

Monday – Friday, 6 am to 8 pm PT

Saturday – Sunday, 8 am to 5 pm PT
