“The Department of Veterans Affairs is investigating the “inappropriate removal” from the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital of records that contain personal information about hundreds of veterans who had received treatment there.

“This is an active, open investigation,” said Haley spokeswoman Carolyn Clark, who would not say where the records were taken from, who took them, or why.

Someone used the information taken from Haley to open at least one debit card account in the name of one of the hospital’s patients, according to Tampa police records.”
