The ten different centers contained within this rehabilitation network include many in-patient and out-patient locations. The company delivers different rehabilitation services, including outpatient rehab care, medically monitored withdrawal management, adolescent programs, substance abuse support services, extended care services, and more.
A single individual or multiple hackers broke into the Gateway Rehabilitation network and accessed confidential patient files from within. A huge number of files were accessed in this attack, and many patients could have been exposed.
The Gateway Rehabilitation network attack was discovered on June 13, 2022, but it is unclear when the attack began and for how long these individuals had access to the files contained within the network.
This Gateway data breach impacts employees and patients of the rehabilitation centers in the Pittsburgh, PA, area. Anyone that received a document notifying them of the breach could have been impacted by the breach in some way.
A specific number of files impacted by the Gateway Rehabilitation breach isn't known, but over 130,000 individuals were notified about the data breach. Those notified patients were at risk of suffering from data loss and identity theft.
