Prospect Medical Holdings, a 16-hospital system based in Culver City, Calif., and its hospitals are still feeling the effects of a cybersecurity incident that took place Aug. 3, The Record reported Aug. 9.  

As of Aug. 10, the health system’s website says it’s still experiencing a “systemwide outage.”
