Officials say the data, from 2007 through 2011, included first and last names as well as some birth dates, medical record numbers, addresses and medical information. It did not include Social Security numbers, credit card numbers or insurance details.

The UCLA Health System is warning thousands of patients that their personal information was stolen and they are at risk of possible identity theft, officials said in a statement released Friday.

Officials don't believe the information has been accessed or misused but are referring patients to a data security company if their name and credit are affected.
