AdventHealth Foundation West Florida says some of its donors' personal information may have been compromised in a ransomware attack that happened back in February.

Officials said they were informed of the incidents on July 16. A third-party software vendor, Blackbaud, informed AdventHealth that an individual had gained access to their systems between Feb. 7 and May 20.

Blackbaud said the donor database that was accessed by the individual may have included name, address, date of birth, medical record number, date of admission, patient location, patient type, gender, email address, employer name and address, treating physician and gifting information.

Social security numbers, financial accounts and credit card information were all encrypted and the individual did not gain access to those accounts.

AdventHealth is mailing out letters to all individuals who were potentially impacted.

AdventHeath is also in contact with Blackbaud to understand how this incident happened. They said they are re-evaluating their relationship.
