RENO (AP) — The largest health care provider in northern Nevada says some of its patients’ private information was stored on a thumb drive that’s been missing since June 30.

Renown Health said in a letter sent to patients on Friday the incident only affects an unspecified number of people who received inpatient services at its South Meadows Medical Center between Jan. 1, 2012 and June 14, 2019.

It says no Social Security numbers or financial information were on the thumb drive. But it did contain patient names, clinical information and medical record numbers.

Renown officials say there’s no indication any information has been misused. They launched an investigation the day an employee reported it missing but still haven’t found it.
