FastHealth is a company with whom Carroll County Memorial Hospital contracted to provide the hosting and programming for its website from 2006-2010.
After investigation, FastHealth determined that an unauthorized third-party accessed their web server, and may have been able to acquire information from the online employment application database.
FastHealth is required to alert persons who may have been affected by this unauthorized access to their server by sending letters to those whose information had the potential to be accessed.
FastHealth is offering one year of identity monitoring services to all persons who receive the letter.
