Nearly 1,300 patients are being warned after there was unauthorized access to a physician's personal email account at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.

The compromised data may include patient names and surgical data, but the hospital says no social security or credit card numbers were compromised.

The breach happened in early February.
