CLEVELAND - University Hospitals in Cleveland says medical information for more than 7,000 people was compromised when a computer hard drive was stolen recently.

The hospital company says it was notified in August that a hard drive containing backed-up data from physicians' offices was stolen out of a vehicle belonging to a vendor.

WKYC-TV reports that the hospital company released information Monday saying that personal and medical information of 7,170 individuals ``may have been exposed.''

The hospital network said in a statement that it investigated and took measures to correct the situation and keep it from happening again.

There have been no reports that information has been accessed or misused. A letter has been sent to everyone affected.
