Here are nine hospitals and health systems dealing with cybersecurity events that have taken their systems offline or have compromised patients’ protected health information:


  1. Mountain View Hospital, Idaho Falls Community Hospital and partnering clinics are still working to restore their systems after being hit by a cyberattack on May 30.
  2. Wilmington, Del.-based Henrietta Johnson Medical Center is notifying patients of exposure to Delaware Health Network’s data breach.
  3. Cleveland-based MetroHealth said it discovered that an employee was inappropriately accessing patient records since 2008.
  4. Bellaire, Texas-based Harris Health System notified patients and employees that some of their protected health information may have been compromised during a cyberattack due to vulnerabilities in the MOVEit file transfer software that it uses.
  5. Cape Girardeau, Mo.-based SoutheastHealth may have had some of its patients’ protected health information compromised due to it being caught up in the Fortra data breach, which has affected multiple health systems.
  6. Patient and employee protected health information from Louisville, Ky.-based Norton Healthcare has been posted on the dark web after the organization was hit with a cyber event on May 9.
  7. More than 25,000 Pittsburgh-based UPMC patients are being notified that some of their protected health information may have been compromised due to a breach that occurred at its billing and collection services provider Intellihartx.
  8. St. Louis-based Ascension said more than 18,000 patients at hospitals in Texas may have had their data compromised in a recent breach.
  9. An unauthorized party gained access to Petaluma (Calif.) Health Center’s network, possibly breaching patients’ protected health information.
