Health Dept. denies publishing patient names

Statement warns of fake news report online

CHATTANOOGA (Hamilton County Health Department) – The Hamilton County Health Department has been notified by community members that false health information is currently circulating online.

We want to emphasize that the Hamilton County Health Department operates under HIPAA regulations and that confidentiality and patient privacy is of utmost importance to us.

A list of patients would never originate or be shared out to the community from the Health Department. 

We encourage the public to contact the Health Department at (423) 209-8383 if they have any concerns about this scam.
