Daily Briefing

    The New York Yankees are asking fans to name one of 10 nominated nurses as the team's Nurse Hero, who will receive VIP seats to the team's game against the Houston Astros on June 20, in today's bite-sized hospital and health industry news from Florida, Georgia, and New York.

    • Florida: AdventHealth has closed on 2.4 acres of land at $2.95 million as part of its plan to build a one-story, 20,000-square-foot ED and a two-story, 35,000-square-foot medical office building. The timeline of the project is currently unknown, and executives at AdventHealth were unavailable for comment, according to the Orlando Business Journal (Lynch, Orlando Business Journal, 6/3).

    • Georgia: An email account of an employee at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America's Southern Regional Medical Center in Atlanta was the target of a phishing attack that may have exposed the data of 16,819 patients. Patients potentially affected by the breach have been told to monitor their benefits statement, as well as other account statements (Garrity, Becker's Health IT & CIO Report, 6/3).

    • New York: The New York Yankees are asking fans to name one of 10 nominated nurses as the organization's Nurse Hero, who will receive VIP seats to the team's game against the Houston Astros on June 20.
