A Johnson Memorial Hospital spokesperson said Saturday the hospital’s computer network was hacked.
Hospital officials learned Saturday that it was the victim of a cyberattack. As a result, the hospital’s system was disabled, according to a hospital news release.
The hospital is working closely with cybersecurity experts and law enforcement to investigate the attack and restore normal computer operations as quickly as possible, but it was unclear immediately how long that would take, or which law enforcement agencies the hospital was working with.
“JMH is prepared to continue the provision of exceptional care to the community without access to computer records. As part of this commitment to ensuring the ability to serve the community, Johnson Memorial has established processes that permit continued operation in this situation, and most services at JMH are unaffected,” the hospital said in a statement.
Patients should arrive for scheduled appointments unless otherwise contacted, and questions about appointments or treatment plans should be directed to your health care provider, according to the news release.
“JMH has invested heavily in cybersecurity, and we continue to be vigilant. We remain committed to continuing to provide exceptional care to our communities,” the hospital said.
