Millions of American's personal information is at risk after hackers targeted a hospital network.

Community Health Systems announced the breach on Monday. The organization operates 206 hospitals in 29 states across the country. It said hackers in China have stolen data on 4.5 million patients.

The breach happened sometime in April and June this year. The hackers accessed patients' names, social security numbers, addresses and phone numbers.

Community Health Systems does not operate any hospitals in the northern Nevada area.
