A medical laboratory serving Mid-Michigan residents says a hack of an internet application on its network has exposed personal health information of about 34,000 people.

The New Jersey-based company said an “unauthorized third party” accessed data including name, date of birth, lab results, and in some instances, telephone numbers.

The information did not include Social Security numbers, credit card information, insurance or other financial information, they said. 

“There is no indication that individuals' information has been misused in any way,” according to a press release on their website.

Quest Diagnostics said they are working with cybersecurity and police to investigate the hack and will take steps to prevent something similar from happening again.

The company said they’ve notified affected clients by mail.
