A data breach at Middlesex Hospital may have compromised information of more than 900 patients.

Four hospital employees fell victim to an email phishing scam in October, that potentially resulted in the breach of the patients' personal and medical information, according to a release from the hospital.

The information may have contained the name, address, date of birth, medical record number, medication, date of service and the date of diagnosis. The compromised information did not include direct access to full medical records or Social Security numbers, according to Middlesex Hospital.

All of the affected patients have been notified and have been offered free credit monitoring for one year.
