On or around September 7, 2023, Prestige Care became aware of suspicious activity on our computer network. Prestige Care immediately launched an investigation and determined that our network had been infected with malware, which prevented access to certain files on the system.

Through our investigation, we determined that, an unauthorized actor may have had access to certain systems that stored personal and health information on September 7, 2023.  Prestige Care is undertaking an extensive and time intensive review of what information was potentially impacted and to whom that information relates. On December 18, 2023, Prestige Care determined that information related to certain current former employees and residents was present in its systems.  Although Prestige Care has no evidence of any identity theft or fraud in connection with this incident, Prestige Care began providing notice to those individuals whose information was impacted.  While the information impacted varies by individual, the types of information that could have been impacted includes: Social Security number, driver’s license number and/or state identification number, financial account information, health insurance information, medical information, email or username and password, date of birth, passport number, taxpayer identification number, employer identification number, employer assigned identification number, and military identification number.
