A Federal investigation and a NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital internal audit have uncovered the possible theft of personal identity information, including names, phone numbers, and in some cases social security numbers, of approximately 40,000 hospital patients at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. We do not believe that any health-related information was included.
