EMMC reports missing patient information

BANGOR-Eastern Maine Medical Center is missing a hard drive that includes information about some patients.

It's missing from the State Street Campus in Bangor and includes information about patients who received cardiac treatments between 2011 and 2017.

The hard drive is operated by a third party, and includes the patients name, their conditions and other information.

It did not include their addresses or social security numbers.

The hospital says although the risk of identity theft is low, they'll be sending out letters to affected patients.

They'll also be offered free identity theft protection for one year.

An assistance line has also been established for people seeking information at 1-855-973-8200.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
