South Florida Sun-Sentinel, February 14, 2008
Tenet Healthcare Corp. is asking patients nationwide to watch for credit fraud since police arrested an employee for stealing patient information. The former employee worked in Tenet's billing office in Frisco, Texas, where he had access to 40,000 of the office's 4 million accounts. He was arrested Nov. 25, 2007, when he tried to open a Costco credit card using a state ID with fraudulent information, police said.
