Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

An employee of the Detroit Medical Center was found with personal information of more than 1,000 people who were treated at Harper University Hospital. The documents included names, birth dates and in some cases social security numbers.

West Bloomfield police found the information during an identity theft investigation.

The hospital initiated an internal review and immediately revoked the employee's access to the DMC's computer system.

The DMC says affected patients have been notified and will be offered free credit monitoring services.

The DMC operates nine hospitals and institutes around metro Detroit.
