Former Surgery Center Employee Sentenced

KSAL StaffJuly 21, 2015

A 54-year-old former employee of a Wichita surgery center has been found guilty of computer fraud for a mass transfer of emails that included information of 317 patients.

April Galvan was found guilty Monday of seven counts of computer fraud.

Authorities say that around 11:30 a.m. June 12, 2013, Galvan had been fired from Cypress Surgery Center. Prosecutors say that in anticipation of being fired, Galvan sent about 140 emails from her work computer to her personal email account earlier that morning.

They say other emails had been sent in the days leading up to her firing. The emails included sensitive health information for 198 patients, and seven of them had confidential patient information.

The surgery center discovered the email transfer in an audit shortly after Galvan was fired.
