Birmingham's Trinity Medical Center is not among the hospitals affected by a major hack attack, the hospital said Monday. Chinese hackers are suspected of accessing the personal information of Community Health Systems, which operates hospitals in nearly 30 states. The company says no credit card or medical data was breached. But the hackers were able to access names, Social Security numbers, addresses and other information that could be used for identity theft. Some 4.5 million patients could be affected.
