BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -- Saint Francis Broken Arrow says a stolen computer could put some 84,000 patient's identities in jeopardy.

The hospital says the stolen computer was last used in 2004 and contained patient billing information and some employee records.

It says the computer is password protected and so far it hasn't had any reports of identity theft. But, just in case, it's offering those patients free enrollment in an identity theft protection program.

The hospital is mailing patients a letter with more information.
