Ransomware attack continues to affect 2 CT hospital systems | #ransomware | #cybercrime

A ransomware attack continued to disrupt some services Friday at two Connecticut health care systems owned by Prospect Medical Holdings. 

Eastern Connecticut Health Network, which operates Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital in Vernon, and Waterbury Health, which operates Waterbury Hospital, reported on their websites Friday that some services and locations continued to be temporarily closed nearly a week after their parent company reported being hit by a ransomware attack.  

“The outage has affected some of our outpatient services, mostly blood draw and some patient appointments. We have contacted and will continue to contact any affected patients,” Waterbury Health said on its website, referring patients to an appointment information line, 203-573-6595, for more information. 

Waterbury Health’s website reported that blood draw locations were closed, except for an outpatient blood drawing location at Waterbury Hospital.
