Medical Records of Texas Health Patients May Have Been Exposed in Data Breach

Medical records, driver's license and Social Security numbers, and other personal information of Texas Health Resources patients may have been accessed unlawfully, the Arlington-based health system is warning.

Texas Health is one of North Texas' largest provider groups with more than 350 community access points. Over 1.7 million patients visit its physician offices annually, public documents show.
