Ascension makes progress in recovery from ransomware attack | #ransomware | #cybercrime


  • Ascension St. John hospitals, physician offices, and care sites across Oklahoma remain open and operational.
  • Patients with scheduled doctor’s appointments should proceed as planned, although they may experience longer wait times.
  • Ascension’s urgent care centers and emergency rooms are fully operational, though patients may encounter delays.

Ascension continues to make progress toward restoration and recovery following last week’s ransomware attack that affected hospitals across the US.

Despite the attack, all Ascension St. John hospitals, physician offices, and care sites across Oklahoma remain open and operational by using manual and paper-based systems during the disruption, according to an Ascension statement.

“Despite the challenges posed by the recent ransomware incident, patient safety continues to be our utmost priority,” read the statement.

The healthcare organization is collaborating with forensic experts to investigate the incident, understand its root cause, and determine how it occurred. In parallel, Ascension brought in additional cybersecurity to aid in the rebuilding and restoration efforts.
